Welcoming the 2016 BSc intake at Frankfurt School

From 29 August to 2 September we will have a full week of activities to welcome the new intake of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. We are expecting more than 250 students on Campus.

I started introduction programs for the BSc students in 2013 when we spent two days with 80 students in Darmstadt. In 2014, we went to Nuremberg for two days with some 100 students. Last year, for the first time we organized a full week of introduction for the entire cohort. This year, we’ll do the same, just even better than last year! Each year we’ve made the program bigger, more exciting, and more diverse.

The purpose of the introduction week is clear: students should have a great start of this new phase of life. They should get to know each other and Frankfurt School staff, learn some useful skills for their studies ahead and ideally have a lot of fun. Here’s the overview of this year’s program.
