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.
