We boast a large team of highly qualified professors, doctoral candidates, consultants, and practitioners who embody the highest level of expertise in the financial services industry and excel in and enjoy teaching.


Our Faculty

The zeb.business school is supported by Prof. Dr. Dres. h.c. Henner Schierenbeck and Prof. Dr. Bernd Rolfes – two of the most distinguished professors in the banking industry. Their network of nationally and internationally recognized academics, successful managers from banks and insurance companies, and partners and consultants of zeb form the solid foundation of our faculty.

In addition to the highly rated and renowned professors, the involvement of successful and experienced zeb consultants is unique to our degree program. This allows the knowledge gained in counselling practice to be directly integrated into teaching. Insights from consulting practice flow directly into our teaching, offering a highly topical and exciting mix of theoretical and practical knowledge.
