Only after the registration deadline has passed your registration will be transferred to the examination office where you will be booked into the exam. Please click on the small green "P" next to the course in KLIPS and register there.



The "Empirical Finance" exam is scheduled to take place on 12.06.2020 as an online exam, currently it still has to be released. It should be visible in KLIPS shortly. There will be a catch-up date (probably mid-September 2020).
