On Thursday, September 14, 2017, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management hosted the second Summer Reception to say “Thank you” and to honour all donors, who have supported Frankfurt School’s research, teaching, students, and the new campus in the academic year 2016/17. Frankfurt School president Professor Dr Udo Steffens welcomed alumni, philanthropists, members of the advisory board, representatives of companies and foundations as well as faculty members at the executive lounge of the new campus and thanked them for their generosity.
“We are grateful for your support and really appreciate your commitment. Scholarships and research projects were only made possible by your contributions. And we could not have built our rooftop terrace if it wasn’t for the commitment of all sponsors who supported the crowdfunding campaign, organised by our students. Thank you very much and please continue to help us to become one of Europe’s best Business Schools”, said Professor Dr Udo Steffens.
All guest enjoyed the evening with interesting talks and a nice view of Frankfurt’s Skyline. Members of the student initiative FS Events tended the bar.
