In her speech, Jessica Joy Morris, MBA Alumna, Class of 2019, gave insights into her time at the Frankfurt School and how this experience has shaped her.

She told the new MBA students: “Your time at Frankfurt School is going to change you in ways you never expected.” Further she said “As you become the best version of yourselves, you will also make the Frankfurt School of Finance & Management the best version of itself that it has ever been. And that, my friends, is something to be proud of.”
