DART Practice Workshop with Dr. Clemens Börsig (Deutsche Bank)
At the end of January, DART students from Graz and Vienna were invited to a ‘Kamingespräch’ of the Schmalenbach-Gesellschaft für Betriebswirtschaft, meeting Dr. Clemens Börsig, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Deutsche Bank Foundation and former CFO of Deutsche Bank, and CAR’s Alfred Wagenhofer as hosts. During the fireside talk, Dr. Börsig provided unique insights into his experience as a board member of a large corporation and as a former Trustee of the IFRS Foundation. The discussion covered a wide range of topics, including supervisory board responsibility, the role of accounting in the financial crisis, the determinants of auditor choice, as well as Dr. Börsig’s academic and professional career. Furthermore, he shared his thoughts on the interplay between academic research and its practical application. For the participants, the discussion was an excellent opportunity to gain valuable, practical input for their own research projects.
