The program aims at attracting the very best students from Austria and abroad. Vienna has already a strong reputation in Algorithms, Optimization and Operations Research and we expect a tough competition for the PhD positions in this program. The collaboration of 3 important research institutions in the Vienna area – in addition to the collaboration of 3 Faculties (Economics, Mathematics and Computer Science) within the University of Vienna is unique in its dimension and scope.
The lectures given by our guest professors are scheduled in the regular program of the particpating institutions and are open to all students. This extends the teaching offer of the respective institutions and broadens their activities.
