Welcome Note

A Word From Our Academic Director

Prof Dr. Markus Rudolf

Academic Director                                           

Dear Campus for Finance community,

For over 20 years, our Campus for Finance conferences have connected all of the aspects of financial markets and corporate finance that are of great importance to us. Firstly, research orientation matters very much in our Business School education and in our conferences. Research orientation is also reflected by the composition of speakers at all WHU conferences, in particular of course at the Campus for Finance – WHU New Year’s Conference and the WHU Private Equity Conference.

The same holds for our orientation towards leadership in business. In addition to high-ranked researchers, it has always been our goal to attract executives as speakers and contributors to our Campus for Finance conferences.
Thirdly, the conference series is driven by students and also dedicated to students. And finally, we are of course very interested in providing a stage for political ideas and political representatives.

This spirit of “Uniting the World of Finance“ has always existed since the very first Campus for Finance – WHU New Year’s Conference in 2001 and still lives on today. This is the spirit with which we carry on the WHU New Year’s Conference and the WHU Private Equity Conference, as well as any further Campus for Finance conferences that might be constituted in the future.

The organization of the conference would not be possible if it wasn’t for the continuous teamwork between three groups: First and foremost, the students attending the first two semesters of our Bachelor of Science program. Secondly, the academic director, who can be seen as a constant institution over all past Campus for Finance conferences. And last, but not least, the Campus for Finance e.V., our organization of Campus for Finance alumni.

We are all very much looking forward to meeting you for the 22nd Campus for Finance – WHU New Year’s Conference on January 19 & 20, 2022, taking place on WHU’s Vallendar campus and the newly finished town hall of Vallendar.With my most cordial wishes and looking forward to seeing you at the next conferences,

Yours,
Markus Rudolf
