Frankfurt School of Finance & Management sees itself as a think-tank for economics. Our scholars position ideas, topics and findings relating to their fields of research in the scientific community.
- Prof. Dr. Thomas A. Lange
They are often interviewed in the media, speak at conferences and are available to interested members of the public. Through your support, you can make a real contribution to their work. We invite you to establish or support endowed chairs, endowed Ph.D. fellowships and the dialogue between real-world practice and academic theory.
The Frankfurt school’s excellent reputation for research is reflected in the trust that is placed in our scholarly work. This is documented by our endowed chairs:
- BHF-BANK Chair of Private Wealth Management
- Commerzbank Chair of SME Finance
- Deutsche Bank Chair of Retail Banking
- DZ Bank Chair of Financial Economics
- Fresenius Chair of International Health Management
- Dr. Werner Jackstädt Chair
We would like to thank our donors for the endowed chairs!
Our young scholars also contribute new ideas and knowledge to their fields. The Frankfurt School’s endowed Ph.D. fellowships enrich our research by addressing relevant topics from banking, finance and management – with dissertations such as “Optimal Management of Bank Liquidity” and “Configurative Methods of IT Management”. When you decide to support an endowed Ph.D. fellowship, you can also suggest topics that interest you; we would be happy to discuss them with you.
The dialogue between academic research and real-world practice can be fruitful for both sides. For proof, look no further than the Winter School, held by our Centre for Practical Quantitative Finance for the third time in 2009.
Teaching staff, doctoral candidates and industry professionals come together for one week for an intensive exchange of ideas on a specific issue.
The regular workshops held in the Process Lab also evidence the dynamic exchange between academic theory and real-world practice at the Frankfurt School. Here, the focus is on the changing business models of banks and the underlying processes.
Your financial support can trigger new research processes at the Frankfurt School. You get to take part in the discussions and share in the findings, as well as contributing your own experiences, ideas and positions.
