About Us

About us

Frankfurt School is a leading business school in Europe that focuses on finance and management through research, education, and advisory services. Finance and management address two core organisational processes: managing capital flows, and people, for better performance.

We are a diverse institution that unites talented people from all over the world. At the same time, we are proud of our roots in Germany and the Frankfurt area.

Rigorous scientific research is the foundation of great ideas that transform the way we work and live. We believe in enlightenment, and we like to be at the forefront of things, where we impact individuals, organisations, and the communities we serve.

Learning is at the heart of what we do. It is our passion and our calling. Not only do we help others to learn, but we also want to learn every day ourselves. As such, we are all inherently curious, playful, and open-minded.

Our ambition is to change perspectives, including our own. Whether for a one-day workshop, a conference, or a multi-year academic programme, everyone who comes to us can expect to be challenged and enlightened. People leave Frankfurt School with a different mindset, ideas, concepts, and tools that equip them better for their professional challenges.

Frankfurt School is a vibrant, cosmopolitan institution symbolised by its urban campus in the heart of Frankfurt. We approach everything with an entrepreneurial mindset, always thinking about improving things.

We accept that some ideas will fail, but we are perfectionists for our operations and strive for excellence. Good enough for others is usually not good enough for us. Our ambition is to be the top business school in Germany and a leading institution worldwide.

Strategic goals 2021 to 2026


We aspire to be a leading institution in our field – in Germany and beyond.


We want to continue growing. Becoming a larger institution will enable us to fulfil our mission and reap the benefits of economies of scale.

Seamlessly digital 

We believe in the value of face-to-face human interaction. At the same time, most of us are digital natives, as are our customers. For us, it is not one or the other but a seamless flow between both worlds.


We are a sustainable organisation, both in the way we operate and in our services.


We cherish diversity and we want to attract the best talent. We believe that learning and the development of ideas work best in heterogeneous environments.


We impact the scientific community through the excellence of our research and business and society by skilfully translating those results into usable knowledge for practitioners.


We are a data-driven institution. We base our decisions on thorough analyses of available data.

Attractive workplace

Our faculty and staff's excellence, commitment, and dedication are at the heart of what we do. We attract, retain, and develop top talent in every functional area.
