In the Speaker Series, we invite industry professionals to be guest speakers for selected lectures, talks and seminars.
These sessions are particularly valuable, as they give students special insight into the field of real-world Financial Engineering, how the theoretical directly impacts reality. The first-hand industry experiences of the speakers also offer students a glimpse of what the industry is like and what to expect, so that they are better prepared for the industry.
