On Friday, May 3, 2019, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management bade a fond farewell to 72 new graduates at a graduation ceremony in Frankfurt’s Hotel Steigenberger. At the ceremony, students graduating from the Executive MBA and the MBA in International Healthcare Management received their certificates and celebrated with families, friends, professors and staff of the business school.
Professor Dr Nils Stieglitz, President of Frankfurt School, welcomed the graduates and their guests. “This is a proud day, for you and for Frankfurt School”, he said. However he also stressed the challenging times that lay ahead for the graduates. He reminded them that in an uncertain world, it was paramount to take over responsibility and that true leaders embraced ambiguity. But he was optimistic as “Studying at Frankfurt School should have equipped you with all the tools to deal with uncertainty. So this is still a time for optimists,” he concluded.
