Brief study: Academic education of Investor Relations Officers

In research and practice, the investor relations function is characterized by a high degree of interdisciplinarity. Despite the high professional demands placed on investor relations managers, there are still no relevant academic training programs in Germany.

This brief study therefore examines the type and discipline of academic training for IR managers at DAX30 companies. It compares managers and heads of IR departments.

The study is based on a content analysis of the LinkedIn profiles of IR managers at DAX30 companies.
