Frankfurt School of Finance & Management announced the establishment of the “Frankfurt School Centre for Central Banking”. The announcement was made during a guest lecture by Mervyn King, former Governor of the Bank of England, on 11 October 2023 at Frankfurt School. The new Centre will officially commence its activities in January of 2024, strategically expanding the business school’s expertise in teaching and research on central banking topics and building on the school’s strong academic track record with one of the leading finance departments in Europe.
The Frankfurt School Centre for Central Banking will address pressing issues in central banking, conduct relevant research projects and expand the business school’s academic and executive education programmes as well as its networking activities in the realm of central banks. Frankfurt School is excellently positioned on central banking issues such as monetary policy, payment systems and regulation, which have an enormous impact on the economy as a whole and financial markets in particular.
The new Centre will establish a professorship for a particularly research-strong academic. In addition, Jens Weidmann, former Bundesbank President, already joined on 1 June 2023 as Professor of Practice in Central Banking. Together with Emanuel Mönch, Professor of Financial and Monetary Economics, Jens Weidmann will head the Frankfurt School Centre for Central Banking, which will also involve other faculty members, as well as post-doctoral researchers and doctoral students.
The Banque centrale du Luxembourg (BCL) has announced to contribute to the support of the Frankfurt School Centre for Central Banking, among others by funding the endowed tenured professorship and a doctoral fellowship. In the context of this partnership, the BCL is looking forward to fruitful and stimulating exchanges and to benefitting from the Centre’s research output in domains that matter most to a central bank.
