New York University’s Stern School of Business and Deutsche Bank have forged an academic partnership designed to support and expand education and research related to risk management and financial regulation, the school announced Tuesday. NYU Stern’s Volatility Institute, directed by Nobel Laureate Robert Engle, will coordinate the program.
As part of the relationship, Deutsche Bank will…
- fund course design and teaching for risk management and financial regulation at the doctoral level within the school’s finance department
- support research at two NYU Stern research centers: The Volatility Institute and the Salomon Center for the Study of Financial Institutions
- fund annual events addressing risk and regulation, which include an annual conference on risk hosted by The Volatility Institute and a “research day” to present the results of research conducted by NYU faculty and other scholars to practitioners and the academic community
“We are delighted with this partnership with Deutsche Bank as it will link academics and practitioners and lead to a better understanding of risk in our financial system,” dean Peter Henry said, adding that the funding will provide further support for Stern faculty, which has been at the forefront of thought leadership on financial issues for decades.
