In a collaborative effort, the Department of Banking and Finance together with the SOWI-AV of alumni UNI graz and the Finance Club Graz managed to attract Dr. Herta Stockbauer, CEO of BKS Bank AG to the University of Graz on October 12, 2016, where she held a talk about "The Changing Business of Banking: Challenges and Strategies for the Future".

Speaking before a packed Festsaal of the picturesque Meerscheinschlössl, Stockbauer discussed issues of relevance for current and future banking like the low interest environment, capital efficiency, the digital revolution, the threat or opportunity offered by fin techs, the impact of crowd financing on banking, and the perpetual topic of banking regulation. Following a lively question and answer session, there was room for further in-depth discussions at the buffet.
