3 Day Model

The Master in Financial Management follows a unique time model that permits you to work part-time whilst pursuing your full-time Master’s degree.  We call this the “3 Day Model”. Starting from the second semester, our students typically attend classes three days a week, Mondays, Tuesdays and Saturdays. This leaves three working days during the week for self-study, language courses or part-time employment. Some lectures or excursions are organised as blocked week events.

You can choose to take part in our Incubator for year-round guidance or boost your project by taking part in the Accelerator. You can also choose the Entrepreneurship module in your fourth semester and make this specialisation part of your degree!

Electives

In the fourth semester, students can choose to complete two electives, giving them the opportunity to expand the depth of their master programme and gain insights in addition to the primary topics in other areas of interest depending on their professional goals.

Study Abroad

Frankfurt School partners with 80+ universities worldwide that are primarily focused on business and management, giving our students the opportunity to gain comparative viewpoints, diverse cultural and study environments and to widen their international network.
