Since January 2008, students of the Philipps University of Marburg have been involved in the interdisciplinary initiative "Phlink". In addition to further training for members and creative and innovative consulting for companies, Phlink aims to promote sustainable and ecological thinking within the university environment. As the Marburg Student Business Consultancy, Phlink takes the motto "Sustainably well advised" seriously, providing information on social, ecological and economic topics through film and lecture series, training courses and consulting projects. The association aims to form an interface between science and business. Members of the non-profit association benefit above all from the opportunity to continue their education in new fields. In addition, valuable contacts to fellow students and companies can be made via a variety of networks.

Finanzclub Marburg e.V. 

Website (only available in German)

The Finance Club of Marburg is a student association at the University of Marburg, which was founded in March 2016. Its goal is to familiarise as many people as possible - especially students - with the topic of capital investment in the financial markets. Since private investment plays a very small role in society, the Finance Club would like to increase general basic knowledge by providing specific information. At the same time, however, lectures and working groups are also offered to members who are already dealing intensively with the subject of securities. The Finance Club of Marburg forms part of the Federation of Stock Exchange Associations at German Universities, the largest non-political student initiative in Germany.

Plural Economics

The working group is part of the nationwide network "Plurale Ökonomik" (Plural Economics) and offers all economically interested parties an informal opportunity to exchange ideas with like-minded people outside of lectures. In particular, ideas and approaches which may or may not occur at all within the framework of university studies are taken into account and discussed.
