WHU Finance Society is WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management’s finance club. As the business school’s oldest initiative, we aim to create value for our members by providing additional academic sessions with proven experts, networking opportunities with first- class employers and society internal offerings.
Acting as a link between the student body and the finance industry, we promote the theoretical and practical skills of our members and assist them in their path towards a succesful career in investment banking, sales & trading, asset management, private equity, hedge funds, and related industries.
Having started with casual meetings to discuss capital markets, we offer a diverse portfolio of events for our members, today. Clustered into the categories Academic, Corporate, Experienced and Socials, we provide technical lectures and deep-dives by renowned professors, insights into their business and opportunities to get to know the employees of our partners and other renowned financial institutions, as well as accounts, tips and tricks by our long-standing members, and casual events to relax with friends and fellow students.
After the revival of the WHU Financial, a now monthly publication of varied deep-dives and focused articles created by experienced students, our aim is to supply our members additionally with a weekly update on global financial markets and selected important macroeconomic events in the form of a free subscription.
