About us

Dear Campus for Finance Community, 

For 15 years, our WHU Campus for Finance conferences have connected all those aspects of financial markets and corporate finance that are of great importance to us. First of all, research orientation matters very much in our university education as well as in our conferences. Research orientation is also being reflected by the composition of speakers at all WHU conferences, in particular of course at the Campus for Finance - WHU New Year’s or 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 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 continues until today. This is also the spirit which we would like to carry forward with the WHU New Year’s Conference and the WHU Private Equity Conference as well as any further Campus for Finance Conference 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 Association, our organization of Campus for Finance alumni.  

We are all very much looking forward to meeting you for the 17th Campus for Finance - WHU New Year’s Conference on January 18 and 19, 2017, taking place on WHU’s Vallendar campus and the Rhein-Mosel-Halle in Koblenz. 

With my most cordial wishes and looking forward to seeing you at the next conferences, Yours 
Markus Rudolf

Academic Director and Dean of WHU – Otto Beisheim School of Management
