Frankfurt School is further expanding its research and education on finance. Financial managers have vital influence on their companies’ values and their financial organisations: they advise business units and create structures for ensuring that complexity stays manageable, costs remain transparent, and corporate objectives can be achieved.
In education and and research – especially in the Center for Performance Management & Controlling – Frankfurt School addresses issues financial managers master. Today’s Finance departments must adapt to rapidly changing, often digital business models, presenting financial managers with a wide variety of new challenges. Alongside treasury and risk management, they must also be capable of implementing regulatory changes, designing flexible planning systems, ensuring compliance with international accounting standards, creating value by analysing big data, and managing often heterogeneous and fragmented IT environments.
Frankfurt School’s exclusive CFO Roundtable is a confidential forum in which CFOs can discuss pressing issues with the business school’s faculty members. Each meeting focuses on a specific topic introduced by one of Frankfurt School’s professors in a keynote speech. The evening finishes with a get-together, allowing participants to continue their talks and cultivate their contacts. Chatham House Rules apply, and attendance is strictly by invitation only.
