Taught entirely in English, the Boot Camp attracts highly motivated students from Germany and other countries around the world. Spending a fortnight abroad will give you additional international exposure. And last but not least, you’ll benefit from Frankfurt School’s excellent connections to banks, financial institutions and consulting firms. Participants are expected to be fluent in English.
The main event of our boot camp is the Banking Game. During this class you study how to manage a financial institution by playing a competitive, web-based simulator game, Probanker, against other student teams. You will have to make choices about lending rates, advertising campaigns, funding sources, and many other aspects of a real banker’s life to get a firm grasp of risk management in financial institutions.
Participants in our summer school will benefit from our immediate proximity to prestigious financial institutions such as the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Deutsche Bundesbank (the German central bank). The Boot Camp will provide plenty of opportunities to network and you will be sure to make some new firends too. In addition, there will be plenty of opportunities to engage in athletic activities such as swimming with our Associate Dean for those who wish to.
