New chair at Vlerick examines financial institutions
A new five-year academic programme at Vlerick Business School will introduce students to the role and positioning of financial institutions in the greater business community
KBC bank co-operates for new academic programme
In the coming academic year, two topics are up for discussion. First, there will be research into the impact of regulation on the traditional role of banks and the evolution of expectations held by KBC’s stakeholders – like clients, employees, shareholders and the general public.
The second focus lies on service-based banking and insurance using so-called “smart data” – data turned into actionable insights. The new programme will examine how the available information from financial transactions can be optimally applied to improve the services to clients. Later, researchers will analyse the impact of gigantic amounts of data or “big data” on the European financial sector.
