Frankfurt School

The Frankfurt School is one of the leading private business schools. They offer a second campus in Hamburg. It is one of ten business faculties in Germany to be awarded the AACSB International (The Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) seal of approval. Together with its EQUIS and AMBA accreditations, the business school also belongs to the small circle of four German "Triple Crown" institutions. 

All courses offered by Frankfurt School have three aspects in common: high standards, diversity and practice-orientation. High standards, because we expect more of our students. Diversity, because all our courses reflect the rich panoply of perspectives that the field of financial studies has to offer. And practice-orientation, because at the Frankfurt School, research and teaching never take place in a vacuum, but must always be related to current applications.

Frankfurt School is one of the most active German business schools in terms of research. With its practical and research-based orientation it regularly achieves top positions in various rankings.

Master's programmes

At Frankfurt School you can join a Master’s programme in any of seven specialist divisions – each offering you thorough preparation for a future leadership role; each enabling you to systematically gain that vital edge over your competitors. Most of our Master's programmes are taught in English, helping to open the door to an international career.

The Campus at Adickesallee is centrally located in Frankfurt’s Nordend and is part of the „Campusmeile“ that connects Frankfurt’s universities and libraries. The Danish office Henning Larsen Architects has designed the campus making it an architectural highlight in the city.

The building is formed through five towers each slightly offset to create a canyon-like space, the “Zeil of Knowledge”– a special characteristic of the campus. This mall acts as the central meeting place and all major facilities like the auditorium, Learning Centre, restaurant, deli, student & alumni relations as well as the seminar rooms are linked to the mall.

Frankfurt School is an international business school with students from all over the world. Currently, students from almost one hundred countries and from all five continents study at Frankfurt School. The campus aims to reflect this international outlook. A new design, representing the American, European, African, Asian and Australian continents respectively, was created and is showcased at selected walls in each tower of the campus. In the campus garden five mini-landscapes portray the continents. The groups of trees and shrubs reflect the international spirit of Frankfurt School and its students. Pine trees and oaks represent Europe, the Tokyo cherry symbolises Asia and eucalyptus stands for Australia.

Our campus in Hamburg  is centrally located in Hamburg's HafenCity - opposite the Speicherstadt and the Spiegel publishing house. Our premises offer an innovative and sustainable learning environment with a high quality standard.
