DZ BANK GROUP CAREER PRIZE
The DZ BANK Foundation's research engagement is complemented by the DZ BANK Group Career Prize, whose prize money of €24,000 makes it the most generously endowed university prize awarded by a German company for academic dissertations in the field of banking and finance. In 2016, we presented the prize for the 15th time. We bestow it in recognition of outstanding bachelor's and master's degree dissertations with particular practical relevance. In the reporting year, the career prize attracted entries from 248 university graduates, of which 116 were in the bachelor's degree category and 132 in the master's degree category. The dissertations addressed both traditional financial issues and also current topics affecting banks in the age of digitalization.
