In 2004 our Alumni Association established an academic prize called the fwwg-Förderpreis. The award today consists of two lines of funding: The Fraport-Förderpreis for Bachelor students and the Norbert-Walter-Förderpreis for Master students. Prof. Dr. Norbert Walter - long-term chief economist of Deutsche Bank Group and head of Deutsche Bank Research - was member of the jury of the award. After his surprising death in August 2012 the fwwg decided to grant the award in honor of this outstanding and highly engaged alumni of our university.

Term paper that was written in one of the bachelor or master courses of our faculty in the summer term 2021. Paper and presentation can be in English or German. Please ask your professor/seminar instructor to nominate you or in case of a mark of 2.0 or better in the seminar you can nominate yourself.

The jury consists of professors and professionals, including

  • Uta Bormann-Kuhles, ZDF
  • Christine Hock, economist, daughter of  Norbert Walter
  • Michael Hoppe, Fraport AG
  • Prof. Dr. Hermann Remsperger, former board member of German central bank
  • Prof. Dr. Heinrich Rommelfanger, Goethe University Frankfurt a. M.
  • Thomas Wölcken, Accenture
