Deutsche Bank & the University of Chicago Booth School of Business form multi-year academic partnership

Deutsche Bank and the University of Chicago Booth School of Business today announced a multi-year academic partnership designed to support and expand education related to risk management and financial regulation. As part of the relationship, Deutsche Bank will fund the creation of a new speakers series for Chicago Booth MBA students as well as a new summer conference for PhD students.

The “Risk and Regulation in Financial Markets” speaker series will kick off with Douglas Diamond, the Merton H. Miller Distinguished Service Professor of Finance, on Feb. 9, 2010, at  Chicago Booth’s Harper Center. The event will be open to students and selected guests of Chicago Booth.

The new PhD program will consist of a multi-day summer conference focused on the regulation of financial markets which is designed to complement the current PhD curriculum. The program will be open to  PhD students and invited junior faculty from the top business schools.

"This partnership demonstrates a shared commitment by Deutsche Bank and Chicago Booth to educate students on issues of financial regulation and risk management,” said Hugo Banziger, Deutsche Bank’s Chief Risk Officer and a Member of the Management Board. “The financial crisis has shown that risk management and a strong regulatory framework are critical to healthy markets and economies, so it is imperative we work together to educate tomorrow’s business leaders.”

“This partnership will enable Chicago Booth to strengthen its leadership position in risk management and financial regulation,” said Edward Snyder, Dean.  “We are delighted to deepen our close ties with Deutsche Bank, which provide great benefits to our students and alumni,” said Snyder, who also is the George Shultz Professor of Economics at the school.
