Why should I study here?

Founded in 1957 as Bankakademie.  The Frankfurt School of Finance and Management is a triple-crowned business school. The school is currently ranked in the top 3 universities in Germany. The flagship programme, Master of Finance, is ranked among the Financial Times' top 20 programmes. 

What are the admissions criteria?

The application deadline for non-EU students is May 31st. Germany has changed their admissions requirements again, starting for the 2021-22 school year, and now accepts AP scores!  Students who want to apply to programs related to Humanities, Social Sciences, Law, and Economics need scores of 3+ in English Foreign language that needs to be French, Spanish, Latin or German, Math or natural science which can be calc, Bio, Chem, or both Physics C tests addition score in European History, American History, Computer Science or Macro+Micro Economics Students who want to apply for programs centered around Math, Science, and Technology need scores of 3+ in: Math (specifically calculus); Natural Science (Bio, Chem, or both Physics C tests). Language (French, Latin, German, Spanish or English Lit or Lang/Comp)Addition score in European History, American History, Computer Science, or Macro-Micro Economics. 

Alternately, students with an IB diploma, an associate's degree, and 2 years of college credits (including specified courses) are also admissible. A motivation letter, an interview (phone or Skype), and a passport copy are also required. Students from non-anglophone countries or high schools must submit proof of English proficiency. The school offers merit-based tuition and cost-of-living scholarships that all admitted applicants are automatically in the running for. These are announced and awarded in the summer. For more information on non-US admissions requirements, please see the "Jenn Says" section for this entry. Non-native English speakers will need to provide proof of adequate English skills. 

What is student life like?

International students attend an orientation week that includes a chance to sign up for insurance (which is about 80 euros a month but includes all doctor visits and many prescriptions), learn about the public transportation system, and get their student visas. First-year international students are assigned a buddy to help them adjust to the area and school.  The FS buddy program hosts events, international days, and international potlucks.  There are a number of other student-run interest groups, including music groups, student councils, and Model UN.

Scholarships & Funding

A student's current financial situation is not a deciding factor for acceptance into this school. Scholarships, grants, and loans are available. More information is here.

Housing options.

The school is moving to a new campus in the summer of 2017 and will offer brand new dorms to students (not guaranteed, so apply early).  Rooms are single occupancy with baths that are private or shared with one other student.  Eight single rooms share a kitchen and a common area. The rooms range from 430-510 euros per month and include a weekly cleaning service.

Dining information

Additional notes.

I was very impressed by the work Frankfurt Business School does in creating employable graduates.  The school was created by a number of German banks for professional education in 1957 and became a full university in 1990. There are recruiting fairs and corporate events throughout the year, and the school has a job board where employers post positions exclusively for Frankfurt Business School students and alumni. 

Furthermore, the Career Service office has many services to help international students, including teaching students how to write a CV in German format. Due to its origins, it has tight relationships with many banks (aka employers).  Here's a stat that blew me away: according to the school, the average income of their bachelor's graduates after ten years is 153,180 euros per year! The first semester of the program is more theoretical, and the grades are based on one test score.  Students are allowed to take the test 3 times, with only the highest score counting as the final grade.  After that semester, group work is incorporated into the classes. There is a required semester abroad, two for the management program, as well as an internship which must be completed outside of Germany to further add to the international component of the program.  The school helps students find internships. For non-US students wishing to study in Germany, admissions requirements are shown on a country-by-country basis.
