Welcome to the Chair of Financial Data Analytics!

The Chair of Financial Data Analytics is part of the  Cluster Finance, Accounting, Controlling, and Taxation at the faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Augsburg.


In our teaching at the Bachelor level, our lectures provide conceptual, methodological and theoretical foundations for the design and management of business information systems as well as digital finance. As part of the Master's program, lectures are offered in financial data analytics, market microstructure and electronic securities trading. Course offerings are completed with doctoral seminars on research methods.


Our  research focuses on the question of how to extract useful information from large and heterogeous datasets (Big Data) to support financial decision-making. In addition, we focus on the management of opportunities and challenges related to the digitalization of the financial services industry (esp. FinTech). In doing so, different methods of quantitative research (esp. data and text mining) and qualitative research (esp. case study research) are used.
