CFS Summer school

In 2006, the finance lectures at the CFS Summer School, organized with the support of the Deutsche Bank Prize in Financial Economics 2005, took place under the heading “Empirical Asset Pricing”. It revolved around the work of the prize winner Eugene F. Fama and offered approximately 35 Ph.D. students the opportunity to exchange views and ideas with renowned professors on the current state of financial market research.

Lectures by Erik Theissen (University of Bonn), Joachim Grammig (University of Tübingen) as well as Lubos Pastor, who is a colleague of Fama at the University of Chicago, formed the basis of the week-long Summer School. Following the lectures, the postgraduate participants had the chance to discuss their own work in the light of Fama’s research.

The Stiftungsfonds Deutsche Bank im Stifterverband für die Deutsche Wissenschaft *aims by financing the Deutsche Bank Prize to promote academic excellence and practical relevancy and also wishes to invest on a long-term basis in the future of efficient financial markets. In this context the Deutsche Bank Foundation supported the CFS Finance Summer School with 13 half- and 2 full scholarships.
