“I wish all of you a warm welcome at Frankfurt School. The city and our business school are truly international – we benefit from that. Please mix and mingle with the FS community. At the same time you can get to know Germany and Frankfurt”, says Dr Heike Brost-Steffens.
Also, Dr Julia Knobbe, Programme Director of the Master of Finance at Frankfurt School, welcomed the exchange students on behalf of the business school: “Please use your time at Frankfurt School and get in touch with a lot of people – with other students, our professors and the administration”. Moreover, she underlined the interactive learning methods at Frankfurt School and that the students should benefit from the modern infrastructure such as the Finance Lab.
“I have been living in Germany during my bachelor programme for the first time. Since then, I wanted to learn German. Now I can do that and study at a highly renowned business school. Moreover, Frankfurt offers a lot of jobs and will further grow because of the Brexit. The school is very well connected with many businesses”, explains Syrine Lebrun-Damiens, who comes from France and studies one semester at the business school.
Leonardo Aguilar, Master of Finance student and from Argentina, chose Frankfurt School for a semester abroad because he aims to stay at Hesse´s biggest city after graduating. “The business school has a good reputation. Hopefully studying here will help me to find a job in the financial industry locally. Moreover, I am really impressed by the new campus with its modern library or institutions like the Finance Lab”, says Leonardo Aguilar.
