Module 4 — Research Seminar, MBA

The Research Seminar is the fourth module of Financial Markets & Risk Management and truely a highlight, which completes the specialization. In cooperation with Hanseatische Wertpapierbörse Hamburg and Dr. Thomas Ledermann, who is one of the two members of the board of managers, we focus on recent topics of financial markets and exchanges.

Students will choose a recent topic of financial markets, like digitalization of financial intermediaries, alternative investments, etc. and write a paper about their research. Moreover, we discuss the ideas and results with Dr. Ledermann. Students hence receive valuable feedback not only from an academic perspective but also from a very experienced professional of financial markets!

The course comprises 40 contact hours. The didactical approach relies on research, self-learning, brief presentations, and moderated discussions.
