Excellent music and collecting donations

WHU Studenten helfen e.V. ("WHU Students Help") is an initiative led by students that will soon celebrate its 15th anniversary (founded in 2004). This is a period of time that is usually enough to show what an initiative stands for. The aim of the initiative is to "press pause" in a fast-paced world, to be grateful for what we have, and to encourage to give something back. A recurring event is the annual Christmas charity concert, in which students from the WHU community get together to perform a vivid music program. Last time, the donations collected during the evening went to the Kindershospiz in Koblenz. Regular projects concerning the community in Vallendar are also on the agenda. 2019 will also hold new projects for the initiative, ones that have never been seen before.

Global shocks – Can financial systems save the real economy?

The COVID-19 outbreak reminded us of the fragility of our economies and political systems. An external shock, leading to an economic decline, with interest rates already at an all-time low. Contrary to the last global recession, banks are not the epicenter. In fact, the financial service industry could become a facilitator for a global economic recovery through its unique position. Consequently, we ask: can financial firms provide innovative services to overcome the growing inequality and give a new impulse to the global economy?
