The spread of the coronavirus has a major impact on public life and is fundamentally changing everyone's daily routine. For many people it is the first time working from home for a longer period of time – everyone is wondering how economic and social life will continue. Now, the Frankfurt School would like to keep in touch with its alumni even more. This is why Alumni Relations are launching the new "Stay tuned to FS" programme. Various online formats (some in English, some in German) focus primarily on the coronavirus and its effects on society, but also cover topics beyond that and offer alumni the opportunity for further education.

You can find planned formats and dates below.

Interviews & webinars

FS professors and other experts share their perspectives on the crisis in interviews or discuss it with our alumni in webinars. Every Tuesday and Thursday either the video of an interview is uploaded or a webinar takes place in which alumni can participate and ask questions. The recording will be uploaded the next day. We also offer exclusive online training for our alumni.

Online training crisis management

Addressing questions and challenges in times of crisis
Exclusive online training for alumni

How can I organise my to-dos, keep teams together and set priorities correctly during a crisis? How do I manage to remain resilient and conserve strength? How can I work efficiently while working remotely and still use, promote and strengthen my networks?

The Professional & Executive Education department is offering a webinar exclusively for alumni of Frankfurt School. Participants will learn how to successfully guide themselves and others through the crisis. Through multi-perceptivity and reflection, participants will learn about the implications of unpredictable situations and how appropriate leadership can facilitate cultural change. The goal is to recognise and utilise opportunities presented by the crisis.

The webinar is offered once in German and once in English. It is led by Sonja Thiemann, an executive coach and trainer in various Frankfurt School education programmes. Participation is free of charge for alumni:

Saturday, April 11, 2020, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm (German)
Friday, April 17, 2020, 4:30 – 6:30 pm (English)

Personal registration only via email: Please provide your full contact details and let us know which date you want to attend. There is a limited number of seats – first come, first served.
