Professor Dr Udo Steffens, President of Frankfurt School, welcomed the guests and looked back on the time FS spent on campus Sonnemannstrasse. “This campus symbolises the success of Frankfurt School. When we moved here in 2001, no one could have imagined that we would reach capacity limits soon. Hence, Frankfurt School planned a new campus for the second time, where we will move shortly. This is a milestone for the development of our business school.” According to Professor Dr Udo Steffens the EQUIS re-accreditation for five years is a further endorsement of Frankfurt School belonging to the leading business schools in Europe.
Following, Dr Heike Brost, Head of Degree Programmes & Executive Education, awarded the FS Spirit Award – a new prize to honour students who have made an extraordinary contribution to Frankfurt School´s Student Life. Fabian Aymanns and Ann-Sophie Molter are this year’s winners.
