Frankfurt School cooperates closely with the Université Protestante au Congo (UPC) in Kinshasa. Frankfurt School has been working with UPC for over a decade in various programmes and projects in DRC. In February 2018, Frankfurt School started the MBA for Executives in Kinshasa. The programme is offered with the support of UPC. Faculty in the programme comes from both institutions, though more than 80 % of the Professors have an international background. Classes in Kinshasa take place either at the campus of UPC or in the Pullman Hotel, both centrally located in DRCs capital.
Our network of graduates is a major asset that builds bridges between academic theory and real-world practice. But above all, our graduates stay in touch with each other long after they have earned their degrees, quite independently of the years they attended the university.
Frankfurt School’s trust-based relationships and friendships with our MBA Alumni are supported by our official Alumni & Friends department, through which we build lifelong bonds and career impacts.
