The Institute of Finance & Economics (IFE) was created to study the current and future challenges in international Finance and Economics. The IFE is affiliated to the internationally renowned ESB Business School. On the one hand we offer excellent Executive Education Programs and special Seminars in the field of Finance & Economics. On the other hand we conduct comprehensive and in-depth research projects. We combine a mainstream approach and a way of new economic thinking that can lead to tackle the challenges of the 21st century.
The recent global financial crisis has vividly confirmed the deficiencies in Finance & Economic theories. This requires new interdisciplinary approaches as well as new economic thinking. Our seminars and research papers are all based on sound quantitative analysis and finally supports decision-making and planning in all kind of private businesses and governmental institutions.
