265 students started their studies in the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration at Frankfurt School this fall. That’s a record intake for the School and a whopping 18% increase compared to last year. The number of international guest students also rose to a new record and together this means that we have more undergraduate students on campus than ever before. One more reason we urgently need our new, bigger campus (coming in 2017)!
We’ve overhauled the first four semesters of the Bachelor of Science in Business Administration. The most noticeable difference is that the core curriculum was strengthened and is now more visible. The core curriculum consists of twelve modules that we teach across all concentrations. This is the foundation of all knowledge that we facilitate in our …
The Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, one of Germany’s leading Business Schools, is offering two full scholarships for undergraduate (Bachelor) students starting in August 2014.
We’ve just released a six-minute video presenting our Bachelor of Science program at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. I’m quite happy about it (and a bit proud). We hope that it will give prospective students a good impression of the School and the undergraduate program with its seven different majors.
This year we tried out something new for the introduction week in three of our undergraduate programs. Students of the Bachelor in International Business Administration, Business Administration and Management, Philosophy & Economics went to the nearby city of Darmstadt for two and a half days to “Get Ready for the Frankfurt School Experience”, as we called the workshop.
In August, our pilot project “Creative Complexity” at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management went into its second round with the 2012 cohort. The project’s aim is to try new formats and topics for the undergraduate programs to prepare students better for the leadership challenges ahead of them.
This time we went to Heidelberg. In five days we covered three modules with very different topics.
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.
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.
