Inclusive financial services providers are undergoing rapid change. Many face increasing competition, tougher regulation or are branching out to embrace new market segments. The Inclusive Finance Summer Academy seeks to equip participants with deep technical know-how across five major themes: Risk Management, Housing Finance, Digital Finance, SME Banking, Rural Finance, Human Resources and Social Performance Assessment. You will visit major German institutions related to your elective and develop a better understanding of current trends in emerging markets and developing economies.
20th anniversary of the Summer Academy: July 1 - 5, 2019
2019 is special as we will celebrate our 20th Inclusive Finance Summer Academy. A special year calls for a special program. Our mission at Frankfurt School – International Advisory Services has always been closely aligned with the UN economic development mandate. The Summer Academy is a unique practitioner platform where you can develop the leadership skills necessary to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Participants will choose between the 7 concentration tracks above and participate in broader exposure sessions every day. There are also crosscutting networking and teambuilding activities as well as field visits related to the five specialized tracks. This year, the CSEF Summer Academy will run in parallel to the other 7 tracks. Learn more about the CSEF summer academy.
Our Summer Academy is designed to provide tangible take-home value: what you learn with us in Frankfurt, you can apply straight away in your own organization. More than 1,000 participants over 20 years can’t be wrong – our trainings are cutting edge, delivered by leading experts in their field. Yet, most important for the great success of our Summer Academies is the profile of the participants. You bring the regional expertise, diversity of backgrounds and the unique practitioner’s perspective. Learning from each other is an integral part of our training philosophy. In 2019, we expect to welcome senior professionals from more than 50 countries. This is your opportunity to stretch your network all around the globe.
