Networking science and business

Can scientists predict financial crises? Raghuram G. Rajan, receipent of the Deutsche Bank Prize in Financial Economics 2013, warned of a financial crisis as early as 2005, focusing extensively on its causes in his book "Fault Lines". For the business community, such analyses and the theories they lead to are powerful tools to deal better with current and future crises. For business, such analyses and the theories that arise from them are a great aid in dealing better with future crises.

What do we aim to achieve?

In science, there is a trend toward specialization while the global economy is becoming increasingly complex. Decisions reached on one side of the globe can simultaneously have an impact on other regions. For this reason, we would like to promote the interdisciplinary dialog between knowledge and practice.

What is our approach?

At many locations, Deutsche Bank works closely with local universities, creates additional professorships and awards science prizes.

What have we accomplished?

  • long-term collaboration with universities
  • intensive exchange with leading scientists
  • funding of three professorships at the Bocconi University in Milan, the Leipzig Graduate School of Management (HHL) and the Luxembourg School of Finance
  • Deutsche Bank Prize in Financial Economics, Europe’s highest scientific honor for finance, monetary and macroeconomics
