Alumni & Careers

Our network of graduates is a major asset. They build bridges between Frankfurt School, the business world, and society in general – bridges between academic theory and real-world practice. But above all, our former students stay in touch with each other long after they have earned their degrees, quite independently of the years they attended the university.
