The Frankfurt School Spirit Award

We want to show our appreciation of those students who bring the Frankfurt School spirit and code of honour to life. In addition, we want to show our appreciation for all the time and energy students invest in everything they do outside their studies to make Frankfurt School a truly great place to be.

More Less

The two awardees of the FS Spirit Award are honoured as lifelong Frankfurt School role models. They are given their own spot on our Donor Wall and their names appear next to the names of illustrious companies, alumni and parents who have donated thousands – in some cases even millions – of euros to Frankfurt School.

Awardees

This year’s winners are Ann-Sophie Molter (Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Class of 2019) and Fabian Aymanns (Master in Management, Class of 2017).

Both have made an exceptional contribution to the society and the FS community. Their dedication and willingness to strengthen the Frankfurt School Student Life and go beyond that has been outstanding.

Their motivation, engagement and passion make them great Frankfurt School role models. Ann-Sophie and Fabian embody the Frankfurt School spirit and the Honour Code values. This engagement has convinced the Awarding Committee, which consists of representatives of the presidium, FS staff, the student council and alumni.

The applications for next year’s award will be opened in March 2018.

Prof. Dr. Karl Fr. Hagenmüller-Preis

Every year, this prize is awarded to the nation’s top-scoring management studies graduate at Frankfurt School of Finance & Management. The prize was awarded for the very first time at the 2006 Graduation Ceremony. Since 2008, the prize has been awarded at Graduation Ceremonies in Frankfurt’s famous Paulskirche. Since 2015, the Professor Dr Karl Friedrich Hagenmüller Foundation has also awarded a prize for the top-scoring student on the Bank Administrator course in an examination year.

Professor Hagenmüller was the founder of Bankakademie, Frankfurt School’s forerunner. At the time, he was Professor of Banking & Finance at Goethe University Frankfurt, and sat on the Board of Directors of Dresdner Bank AG. Until 1981, he had a huge influence on the business school’s development in a number of different roles. To support Bankakademie, he set up a foundation with his own name in 2000. And in 2009, the business school named one of the university professorships after him, the Hagenmüller Chair of Financial Risk Management, currently held by Professor Dr Martin Hellmich. Professor Hagenmüller died at a great age in September 2009.

More Less

Professor Hagenmüller was born in Naila in Germany’s Upper Franconia region in 1917. He died on September 29, 2009.

Professor Hagenmüller started by studying Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration at university, interrupting his studies to serve in the army in the Second World War, during which he earned the rank of captain. He resumed his Business Administration studies in 1946, graduating one year later. He was awarded his doctorate in 1948. Following his accreditation as a university lecturer (habilitation) in 1950, he was given a teaching post at the University of Munich, moving to Goethe University Frankfurt in 1952, where he was named Chair of Banking & Finance in 1953. He also headed the university’s Institute of Cooperative Studies, Trades and Crafts.

In 1966, he moved to Dresdner Bank, where he was appointed to the Board of Directors in 1967. Dresdner Bank’s famous “Silver Tower” was built during his time at the bank; until 1990, it was the tallest building in Frankfurt. He continued to maintain a close relationship with Goethe University as Honorary Professor of Business Administration, specialising in bank management in particular.

Professor Hagenmüller produced his three-volume opus “Bankbetriebslehre” (About Bank Management) in 1964. It has become a standard reference work, now in its fifteenth edition.

Professor Hagenmüller sat on numerous boards and committees of both businesses (e.g. as President of GfK in Nuremberg, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Bilfinger & Berger) and academic institutions (such as the Schmalenbach Society and the Fraunhofer Society).

Together with Dr Reinhold Sellien, Professor Hagenmüller co-founded Bankakademie (the Banking Academy) in 1957; he worked as the institution’s Academic Director for many years.

Professor Hagenmüller remained closely involved with Frankfurt School of Finance & Management, the successor to Bankakademie, until the day he died. He gave “his” business school all the benefits of his own extensive experience, based on his research, teaching and real-world practice. He also founded his own eponymous foundation, which continues to sponsor Frankfurt School and its students today.

In February 2009, Frankfurt School’s Executive Board decided to name a professorship after Karl Friedrich Hagenmüller, both to honour one of the business school’s founders and as an expression of thanks for his many years of invaluable advice and support. Professor Dr Martin Hellmich currently holds the Karl Friedrich Hagenmüller Chair of Financial Risk Management

Hildegard-Leonardi-Preis

The Hildegard Leonardi Memorial Prize was set up by Frankfurt School’s faculty staff and alumni, and is awarded annually. The prize pays tribute to a student who has rendered outstanding services to the student community during his or her time at the business school.

From the very beginning, Professor Dr Hildegard Leonardi played a key role in the development of the Hochschule für Bankwirtschaft (HfB). She was Dean of the university from 1997 to 1999.

Quite apart from her professional achievements, her open-minded personality had a strong influence on the university, acting as an inspirational example for both students and teaching staff. For her, it was self-evident that business considerations must also embrace the social and personal.

She died in January 1999. She was just 37 years old.

More Less

As an enormously appreciated and beloved colleague, she left her imprint on our business school. To express our appreciation and in fond memory of her inspiring personality, the faculty members and alumni of Frankfurt School set up the Hildegard Leonardi Memorial Prize in 1999, to recognise students who have worked especially hard to address the social concerns of their fellow students.
