The Institut für Unternehmensfinanzen und Kapitalmarktforschung e.V. emerged from the Department of Finance at the University of Mannheim. As an independent association, we promote close exchange between science and business.
The focus is on the practical exchange between companies, young scientists and talented students. In addition, we act as a point of contact for all questions relating to financial markets and are dedicated to the transfer of international research studies to practice and to the economic policy debate.
The Institut für Unternehmensfinanzen und Kapitalmarktforschung e.V. sees itself as a link between theory and practice – for the benefit of all.
Students can register free of charge at the Institut für Unternehmensfinanzen und Kapitalmarktforschung e.V.. Members receive information on job or internship offers from the associated companies, get access to projects and can participate in IUK events free of charge.
