4 Reasons Why You Should Choose Frankfurt For Your Master In Management

Flexible study, career opportunities, and a buzzing city in the heart of Europe: here’s why you should look to Frankfurt School of Finance and Management for your MiM degree


Mon Oct 22 2018

Are you considering doing a Master in Management degree, but still wondering where to do it? 

Frankfurt is widely known as the financial capital of Germany, but the city doesn’t only offer opportunities for those in the banking world. 

The triple-accredited Frankfurt School of Finance and Management is located just outside the bustling city center, and offers a Master in Management degree ranked in the top-30 worldwide by the Financial Times—a climb of 13 places compared with last year’s rankings. 

And if you're not so keen on finance, there's an opportunity to apply your management skills to a variety of industry sectors in Frankfurt including consulting, digital services, healthcare, education, and the automotive industry.

With Brexit on the horizon and Frankfurt becoming a key competitor to London in the business and finance world, now's a great time to consider studying a MiM degree in the city.

Here are four more reasons you should study your Master in Management degree at Frankfurt School:

1. Work for some of the world’s biggest corporations

As well as being home to the European Central Bank and the German stock exchange, Frankfurt is also the base of a host of industry giants—EY and KPMG both have offices in the city.

The Master in Management program at the Frankfurt School benefits from a three-day week model for the curriculum—students are only taught during three days of the week, which means the rest of your time is free to fill with work experience.

Current Master in Management student Laura says the three-day model is what initially attracted her to Frankfurt School—and it allowed her to get experience at KPMG in her first year of the program.

“The three-day model really has a two-sided benefit,” she says. “I could apply the theory of what I learned in class at work, but then I could also take some of the examples from work and use them in class.”

2. Study in a city in the heart of Europe         

Europe’s third-largest airport is in Frankfurt, and it’s also possible to travel to some of the continent’s largest cities in under a few hours on the train—perfect if you’re keen to explore Europe in your spare time, or for investigating employment opportunities after your degree.

For Laura, Frankfurt's location provided benefits on the program as well.

“We’re planning a study trip in class to Brussels,” Laura explains. “We’re going by bus and it’s only going to take us three hours, that’s nothing.”

"It’s so well connected to the rest of the world—you have so many opportunities," she adds.

3. Work in a diverse international environment

Frankfurt is truly an international business center—almost 30% of the city population are expats, and Frankfurt School reflects this diversity in their programs as well.

The Master in Management program at Frankfurt School attracted students from 15 different countries this year, and 38% of students on the program are from outside Germany.

Riccardo Silvestri, an Italian student in his first year of the Master in Management, studied in Frankfurt on an Erasmus program during his undergraduate degree. After returning to Frankfurt for his master's, he landed an internship at e-commerce company Emma Mattress, and now works part-time as a project manager for the Italian side of the brand.

“I really wanted an international career,” he says, “My Erasmus experience changed my way of thinking, and I wanted to be part of an international environment again.”

4. Live in one of the world's best cities for quality of life

Frankfurt ranks seventh out of all cities globally for quality of life based on factors including personal safety, health, transport, and education.

Last year, Frankfurt School of Finance and Management unveiled their new modern and sustainable academic building, which contributes to improving the health of the city with solar and wind power. The building also benefits students with state-of-the-art finance and AI labs, and roof terraces where you can drink in the skyline of Frankfurt.

Student Reviews

Frankfurt School of Finance & Management




Modern and global

Frankfurt School provided me with one of the best experiences of my life. I was an Erasmus student for a semester and could learn a lot. I took some mainstream courses like marketing and supply chain management, but also some innovative courses like applied persuasion and event planning. The professors are not only germans but from different parts of the world, mostly with international experience. The student life is great, the FS Bulls are a great community that is definitely worth being a part of. The best part is the campus, newly built with ultra modern architecture located in on the of the best neighbourhoods in Frankfurt am Main. You can find accomodation right next to it, many student residences at a fair price.




Career Oriented

I am a first year at the Frankfurt School and have been a prt of it for only a month; however, I can say for sure that the university provides its students with all the opportunities to grow professionally and personally. The majority of the professors are or have been successful professionals who easily relate the course material with real life and make lectures enjoyable. The extra curricular activities provided by the university are also a great step to life after graduation and give a head start for the students career.




University giving its students education of high quality and career prospects.

This university has helped me gain knowledge and experiences, that I lacked in my home country. Being in a great international surrounding, I have the opportunity to prosper and learn every day. The study program is very engaging, and the lecturers help you grow.





I’m a bachelor student at Frankfurt School of Finance and Management and my overall experience was better than I expected. The classes have a small number of students, which makes the relationship with the professor better because they become easier to approach. During my years of study, I had both practical and theoretical classes, like innovation management, big data & analytics, econometrics. But the theories and concepts are directly applied to real-life problems due to many professors working in banks or consultancies, which is really good. FS supports students in finding internships and semesters abroad, but when it comes to housing not so much because it’s not that easy in Frankfurt. FS offers dorms, but it is only to a limited amount of students and the facilities aren’t the best. In terms of student organizations, there are a lot of different sport clubs for almost every kind of sport, also student consulting, student investment club, student politics club, music, arts, etc. Living in Frankfurt is good, it is very multicultural in Germany, with lots of cultural actives, museums, parks, etc. The nightlife is also nice with proper nightclubs compared to the size of the city, Gibson, Velvet, Adlib to name a few, and there also is a bar district in Alt-Sachsenhausend and a lot of bars where bankers go in the city center. The campus is not really comparable to an actual campus like the American universities, but it’s a big modern building that was built 2 years ago. I would definitely recommend it to a friend if you're willing to pay that much for uni, because there are still a lot of public unis in Germany that are comparably good (Mannheim, Goethe, LMU Munich...).
