On Wednesday, March 21, 2018, Frankfurt School of Finance & Managament celebrated its first International Day on the business school´s new campus. Students from 13 different countries including Brasil, China, England, France, Greece, Canada, Croatia, Mexico, Nicaragua, Russia, Schottland, Soutkorea and Turkey prepared food and drinks for the guests. In addition, one student from Kurdistan prepared local delights. For the first time Kurdistan, Nicaragua and Turkey participated in the event.
Roger Castillon from Nicaragua, a Master of International Business student at Frankfurt School thinks that the International Day is a special opportunity to get to know other cultures and students. “Frankfurt School represents internationality. However, in everyday life it is sometimes not that easy to learn more about the other students backgrounds. Hence, such an event is perfect for networking – not only with students but also with FS staff”, emphasises Roger Castillon.
For the event he cooked late into the night: “A lot of work, but it was worth it – through the food all the others get to know more about my home country. I cooked a typical dish for Nicaragua. It is called Fritanga. It consist of many ingredients: ‚Gallo pinto‘ which is rice and red beans, fried beef, salted and fried banana as well as salad and avocado”.
