We have completely overhauled the structure and the contents of the Bachelor advanced study phase at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, that is, the last two semesters of the programs. In a nutshell, undergraduate students in our seven different business and management programs now have a vastly broader choice of topics, they have more freedom when selecting courses and classes will be in English by default.
Last month I traveled to Colombia. Although I have several friends from there and know Latin America quite well I had never been in the country before. My one-week trip led me to Bogotá, Barranquilla, Cartagena, Cali and Medellín.
Next week will be the first workshop block of our “Creative Complexity” pilot project. I will go with 17 students from the 2012 Bachelor cohort at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management to Maria Rosenberg, a conference center at a traditional place of pilgrimage about an hour and a half drive Southwest of Frankfurt.
Business leaders face a world that is much more dynamic than in the past. Business education needs to change to prepare young people for the challenges ahead of them. Therefore, the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is launching a pilot project for its undergraduate programs to include new topics into the curriculum.
The project—entitled “Creative Complexity: Preparing for Leadership in a Dynamic World”—will take up to 30 participants each from the 2012 and 2013 intakes on an exciting learning journey. Three five-day workshops during semester breaks will take them out of the normal class environment to explore new topics.
I just came back from Geneva where I spent two days with friends and fellow alumni of the World Economic Forum’s Global Leadership Fellows Program. It was great catching up with everybody a bit more than a year after I left to take up my current position at the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management.
