It has been a decade since the Chair of e-Finance of Prof. Gomber launched LiveX. In celebration of LiveX 10th birthday, we would like to thank our licensees. With the help of your valuable input, our team continuously improves LiveX’ user experience. LiveX has started with the idea to teach securities trading in an interactive and realistic way. It turned from a simple client-server-lab solution into a professional cloud-based trading simulation. Nowadays, it covers fragmented markets with different market models that are accessible via the internet. This allows lecturers to teach the world of securities trading in-person or in a digital classroom.


Prof. Gomber was awared the "Goethe Business School Excellence in Teaching Award" in the “Part Time Master of Finance Class of 2022” for his course on “Trading & Technology”. Furthermore, based on the course evaluations of the PTMF Class of 2022, he has earned the 1st place among the faculty teaching elective courses in the summer semester 2021. The "Goethe Business School Excellence in Teaching Award" was handed over to Prof. Gomber in the graduation ceremony of Goethe Business School on May 7, 2022.
