Frankfurt am Main.
Frankfurt School of Finance & Management would like to invite all those interested in higher and further education to the Frankfurt School Open Day on Saturday, 10 March 2012. Frankfurt School will be presenting the university’s entire range of academic programmes, as well as vocational and professional training programmes for bankers. Visitors will also have the opportunity to attend lectures by the teaching staff. Companies who train or employ Frankfurt School students during and/or after their studies will be showcasing their career options. Other exhibitors will include the Frankfurt School Career Services department, International Office, FS Alumni e.V. (alumni association of the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management) and various student initiatives, offering visitors extensive information on their activities, services and programmes. At a special stand, Frankfurt School team members will also explain the various options available for student funding. Frankfurt School students and alumni, as well as vocational trainees, bankers and interested parents and teachers, are cordially invited to attend.
Starting in Winter Semester 2012/2013: English-language Bachelor programmes at Frankfurt School
As from the next winter semester, Frankfurt School will be offering two Bachelor degree courses that will be taught entirely in English. As well as a six-semester course in Business Administration – which includes one obligatory semester spent studying abroad – the university will also be offering the International Business Administration programme entirely in English as from the autumn: the degree course will last for seven semesters, including two semesters abroad. The President of Frankfurt School, Professor Dr. Udo Steffens, explains the reasons for this decision: “A steadily growing number of school-leavers – German, as well as foreign – want to study in English, and we’re determined to satisfy this demand. And, of course, we also want to attract youthful talent to Frankfurt School from all parts of the world, thereby benefitting the Rhine-Main economy and the performance of businesses in the region.” Steffens believes prospective students from India and South America, as well as southern and South East Europe, are interested in studying in Germany precisely because of Germany’s economic strength in the current crisis. “Many young people aspiring to professional careers in the business world are interested in what Germany and German companies are currently doing so well. They want to acquire German management skills and learn the secrets of our corporate leadership, business policies and employment policies,” continues Steffens. Although many of these students do not have sufficient German skills for a degree course, this language barrier has now been transcended thanks to the launch of English-language programmes by Frankfurt School.

We also cordially extend our invitation to representatives of the press and media, and would be delighted if you could publish the details of this Frankfurt School event. We would be happy to answer any questions you may have about Frankfurt School.
