In September 2016, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management will launch a new, online Master’s programme on “Leadership in Development Finance”. The 18-month degree course will be taught in English. The online format will enable students from around the world – from Zambia to Armenia – to obtain a Frankfurt School Master’s degree while still working part-time or full-time.
The course specifically addresses the needs of professionals and future leaders who are already working in development finance, for example at donor organisations, microfinance institutions, NGOs or development banks. By organising appropriate forums, tests and chat rooms, Frankfurt School will ensure that students are closely supervised and can interact directly with course tutors and each other.
In addition to compulsory classes on, for instance, managing change or innovation in development finance, students can also take elective modules in a variety of subjects. Typical options include Islamic Microfinance, Microinsurance, Risk Management and Renewable Energy Finance.
Applicants are required to have a university degree (at least equivalent to a Bachelor degree), some professional experience, and excellent spoken and written English-language skills. They must also successfully complete Frankfurt School’s admissions procedure. Tuition fees for the new programme total EUR 14,700. Frankfurt School offers a variety of fee reduction options.
Graduates who successfully complete the course will be awarded an M.A. degree (Master of Arts).
