VGSf - WU Vienna campus

Congratulations to our students for their excellent placements!

The Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance (VGSF) con­grat­u­lates its gradu­at­ing PhD stu­dents for their out­stand­ing ap­point­ments. They found ex­cit­ing jobs in ex­cel­lent in­sti­tu­tions.
  • Ro­man Gon­char­enko joins KU Leuven as Assist­ant Pro­fessor
  • Akos Hor­vath joins the Fed­eral Re­serve Board of Gov­ernors as Econom­ist in the Su­per­vi­sion and Reg­u­la­tion De­part­ment
  • Roberto Pinto joins Lan­caster Uni­versity Man­age­ment School as Assist­ant Pro­fessor
  • Tho­mas Rauter joins the Uni­versity of Ch­icago Booth School of Busi­ness as Assist­ant Pro­fessor

These place­ments prove again that VGSF com­petes with top European and In­ter­na­tional schools. Just last year, an ex­ternal com­mit­tee of in­ter­na­tional re­view­ers rated the school as “ex­cel­lent” for its edu­ca­tion, re­search, im­pact, and vis­ib­il­ity. In a re­l­at­ively short period, VGSF has built a world­wide net­work of gradu­ates hold­ing aca­demic and in­dustry pos­i­tions in top in­sti­tu­tions.
Spe­cial thanks to the stu­dents’ ad­visors for their guid­ance dur­ing their Ph­D-­pro­cess. We look for­ward to their suc­cess­ful ca­reers!

About the School

The Vi­enna Gradu­ate School of Fin­ance (VGSF) was foun­ded in 2005 as a joint ini­ti­at­ive of the In­sti­tute for Ad­vanced Stud­ies, the Uni­versity of Vi­enna, and the Vi­enna Uni­versity of Eco­nom­ics and Busi­ness, with the fin­an­cial sup­port of the Aus­trian Science Fund (FWF).
These three in­sti­tu­tions joined forces to cre­ate a hub in Vi­enna that is large enough to pro­duce in­ter­na­tion­ally re­cog­nized re­search and provide a com­pet­it­ive PhD edu­ca­tion. The res­ult is the well-­struc­tured, five-year PhD pro­gram in Fin­ance, which trains stu­dents to be­come am­bi­tious re­search­ers in the field of fin­ance.
The VGSF fac­ulty re­search ex­pert­ise spans the broad areas of cor­por­ate fin­ance, fin­an­cial in­ter­me­di­ations, and mar­ket mi­cro­struc­ture. VGSF has a well-es­tab­lished net­work in the in­ter­na­tional fin­ance com­munity. The fac­ulty col­lab­or­ate with renowned ex­perts and aca­dem­ics, who are often in­vited to VGSF as guest lec­tur­ers or to hold sem­inars.
