Leiter school

Prof. Dr. Michael Lister

After graduating from high school and working in banking for four years, I studied in Münster and Basel, earned my PhD and became a professor in Banking and Finance. At Steinbeis University, I am academic chair of Finance, Banking and Controlling.

I have been at the helm of the school since 2013, and since 2018 I have also headed zeb.campus, the area responsible for research and education at zeb.rsa GmbH.

As co-author of “Ertragsorientiertes Bankmanagement”, the German state-of-the-art textbook on integrated bank management, I am researching – together with my colleagues Henner Schierenbeck and Stefan Kirmße, among others – the further development of the underlying concept of modern bank management.

My scientific contributions are always driven by the ambition that theoretical findings should offer the greatest possible benefit for entrepreneurial practice. Of course, this principle also applies to any form of teaching, which works even better when served with a dash of humor.
