The program is open to outstanding students from all over the world who are interested in an excellent doctoral education preparing them for doing research in international business taxation. The Doctoral Program provides high-quality interdisciplinary training for graduates in the field of international taxation including and combining the disciplines of public finance, international tax law and cross border tax management. Although students will write their doctoral thesis in their own discipline (law, business, public finance, economic psychology, …) they will be exposed to intensive interdisciplinary discussions during their stay in Vienna. From opening traditional tax training to other disciplines like economic psychology, history, political science, ethics, legal philosophy as well as organizational behaviour and decision making (always in the context of taxation) a broadening of horizons and a more comprehensive approach to research questions is expected.
A limited number of students are admitted every year. For them the tuition will be completely waived, and a certain number of students will be funded over the three years stays at WU in Vienna! A poster and info-sheet about the program can be accessed here.
