“For me as a Master of Finance student, Frankfurt is a very attractive location, particularly after the Brexit votum. Frankfurt´s importance as a global financial centre is increasing. Also, cost of living is comparatively favourable. In my home country Australia this is completely different. Obviously Frankfurt School has a good reputation too”, Beau Boobhakam explains her motivation to study at Frankfurt School.
For Luis Paulo Guardabaxo´s decision to study at Frankfurt School for two semesters the reputation of the business school as well as Frankfurt as a liveable city were crucial: “There is a lot going on in Frankfurt. At the same time the city is not too big and still well-arranged. In addition, staying at one of the global leading business schools offers me the possibility to build a good personal and professional network”.
