The Management Department of Frankfurt School of Finance & Management focusses its research on scientific questions relevant to the management in companies and other organizations.

The professors, lecturers and doctoral students of the Management Department bundle their expertise in research projects dealing with a broad spectrum of scientific issues.

The Management Department with close ties to the financial industry gradually expands its research activities into other areas addressing industries and general management issues in organizations of all sectors. Research projects in cooperation or in strategic partnerships with companies and organizations lead not only to the funding of research but also ensure the transfer of theory and scientific knowledge into practice.

Management & Accounting Seminars

Frankfurt School’s Research Seminar in Management & Accounting is a forum for researchers to present and discuss research contributing to a better understanding of a broad range of managerial issues. The research seminar focuses on the interactive discussion of theoretically embedded papers following rigorous research designs (including empirical-archival and experimental research methods).

The talks usually take place on Tuesdays from 12:15 to 1:45 p.m. during the semester. Before or after the talk there is the opportunity to meet and exchange with members of the faculty in individual discussions.

External guests are welcome to attend and are in case of interest asked to subscribe via e-mail in order to get invitations for our research seminar and other events
