Biography of Axel Weber 
Axel Alfred Weber, Prof., Dr. (born 8 March 1957 in Kusel) is a German economist, professor and banker. He teaches at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and is a board member and chairman of the board of UBS.

Career
From 1982 to 1988 Weber worked as research assistant in the field of monetary economics at the University of Siegen and was awarded a Doctorate in 1987. After gaining his Habilitation at the University Siegen, in 1994 he was appointed Professor of Economic Theory at the University of Bonn and in 1998 he moved to the Goethe University Frankfurt (where he remains a member of the Advisory Board). He was also the Director of the Center for Financial Studies in Frankfurt am Main. From October 2002 he was a member of the expert advisory panel to the Deutsche Bundesbank.
