Online Research Seminars in Finance

In this challenging time due to COVID-19, we organize this online research seminar series to continue the exchange between academics and practitioners and to bring top academic research to a broader public forum.

The seminar series is joint effort of the Finance departments of the Universities of Bonn, Dortmund, and Wuppertal as well as WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management. The seminar has been initiated by Peter Limbach (University of Bonn and University of Cologne) and is organized by him and Peter Posch (University of Dortmund). We thank Christian Andres and Nic Schaub (WHU), André Betzer (University of Wuppertal), and Hendrik Hakenes (University of Bonn) for their support.

We are proud to present internationally recognized academic speakers and kindly invite you to join the discussion on Zoom (please register below using your academic/institutional email as the number of participants is currently restricted) or follow us via our live stream. We stream some of our seminars on this website.
