The Department organizes the Corvinus Financial Research Seminar and Workshop on a weekly basis, where colleagues working at the Department or other institutions can report on their latest research and ideas.

Financial Clearing Research Lab

Financial transactions involve paying obligations to be settled in the future, so the counterparties are exposed to the risk of non-payment until all commitments are fulfilled. The clearing mechanism is a key element of a well-functioning market; thus, several questions emerge that are worth investigating from theoretical and practical perspectives.

The aim of the Financial Clearing Research Lab is to connect researchers of the Corvinus University of Budapest working on related topics and to build a platform to exchange ideas and to foster professional discussions.

The Department’s Creative Camp

The good thing about the creative camp is that we have time for each other. We listen to everyone and discuss every topic meticulously (cf. live dissection). Since 2009, we have gathered almost every year in Alsóörs for a creative camp in August (AAA +).

Three to five days of concentrated flow sensation. Everything evolves spontaneously and always turns into something interesting. Lots of good people in a small place.
