Frankfurt School of Finance & Management held its first Master of Finance Alumni Leadership Workshop from October 12 to 16, 2016, with the support of the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst) and the Federal Foreign Office (Auswärtiges Amt). The global alumni network was invited back to the FS campus for a four day multi-faceted programme exploring all aspects of leadership through workshops, lectures and practical exercises.
More than forty alumni from four continents enjoyed networking, making new contacts and also having the pleasure of catching up with old faces. Dr Julia Knobbe, Master of Finance Programme Director, said: “It was great to see new bridges being built over the course of the Alumni Leadership programme.” Different leadership topics, including “Conflict Management”, “Getting Commitment across Hierarchies” and “Rhetoric and Presentation Skills”, were explored in workshops, allowing time for reflection on the past and preparation for the future. The FS alumni also participated in outdoor physical leadership exercises, on the banks of the Main.
