Frankfurt School is welcoming exactly 331 new students in the Pre-Experience Master programmes at the start of the 2020/21 winter semester. Today is the official start of the semester. Last week the orientation week and opening ceremonies took place.
On Monday, 24 August 2020, at 13:00, we began greeting our Master's students. Frankfurt School President Professor Nils Stieglitz personally welcomed them: "Today you, your families and your friends can be very proud. Thank you for choosing Frankfurt School and becoming a member of our vibrant community".
Christian Zahn, Partner McKinsey & Company, himself a graduate of Frankfurt School spoke. In 2004 he completed his Bachelor's and one year later his Master's degree at FS. In his speech, he gave insights into the current situation of the banking sector as well as his own time as a student and valuable advice "Enjoy your time at the FS, make friends and calmly challenge the professors. Frankfurt School is the best place for this".
Lynn Cunningham, Master in Management, Class of 2021, also praised FS: "It is the people who make this university so unique. After a team-building exercise, we went to the Student Terrace for a get-together. At the barbecue, the first face-to-face connections were made.
