E.M.B.L.-HSG 20th anniversary conference
E.M.B.L.-HSG has celebrated its 20 anniversary with a high class conference on the subject "Regulation of the financial services industry and its impact on competition as a whole" at the convention point of the Swiss Stock Exchange SIX.
Top speakers such as Luc Frieden, former Minister of Finance of Luxembourg, Daniel Zuberbühler, former Director of the EBK and Director of the FINMA, Urs Zulauf, former General Counsel of the FINMA, Joacquin Almunia, former EU commissioner and many more discussed the outbreak of the financial crisis 2007/2008 and what could have been done differently, how the authorities have reacted and how a further financial crisis might be prevented. Furthermore, the conference focused on how all those measures taken in order to master the crisis affected competition and the economy.
In the evening, the party continued at the Papiersaal at Sihlcity where a delicious dinner was served.
However, it was not only high standing when it came to food, also the entertainment was unbeatable. Eliane Burki with the Alpine Horn made a tour all around the globe, a bit like the flying class room of the EMBL. The whole evening was accompanied by the famous band piano beat and their singer Börni.
E.M.B.L.-HSG thanks those all who have made this event possible, its sponsors Homburger, Raiffeisen, ZKB, SIX, HSG, E.M.B.L.-HSG Alumni, the speakers and moderators, and the participants.
As the President of the University stated in his opening speech, E.M.B.L.-HSG has a bright future and we are looking forward to another 20 years of high class education.
