We have been supporting companies in various industries for many years by developing solutions for individual challenges in the areas of Business & Information Systems Engineering, Financial Management and Information Management by means of innovative applied research projects.
Furthermore, we offer companies the opportunity to contribute to the practical education of our students in the areas of Business Administration, Economics and Business & Information Systems Engineering and Business Engineering (for example, by means of guest lectures or joint seminar works). Also, numerous renowned partner companies support our master’s program “Finance & Information Management” (FIM), which is funded by the Elite Network of Bavaria.
The Research Center Finance & Information Management and the Project Group Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer FIT have thus built a strong network of renowned industry partners, including:
The successful internationalization of the scientific journals “WIRTSCHAFTSINFORMATIK” and “Business & Information Systems Engineering”, at which Prof. Dr. Buhl was managing editor in chief from 2006 to 2013, is another example for the close link to industry partners such as Allianz, Deutsche Bank, McKinsey and SAP.
To further stimulate the dialogue between science and practice, the Research Center FIM has been actively paricitpating in the EURO FINANCE WEEK in Frankfurt-am-Main for many years. With over 500 speakers and 10,000 visitors from 60 countries, the EURO FINANCE WEEK is the largest meeting of the finance and insurance industry in Europe. In around 40 tracks with 100 discussion rounds, the five-day event includes debates on current industry issues. The professors of the Research Center Finance & Information Management and the Project Group Business & Information Systems Engineering of the Fraunhofer FIT are regularly conducting conferences and panel discussions.
