Special features regarding the equipmentThe Frankfurt School boasts a new, modern campus. All teaching rooms have modern IT equipment and modern seminar-room technology. WiFi is available throughout the campus. Course materials are provided via the university's own online campus; this is also used for communications with assistant professors and fellow students. Students have access to a large number of databases and information sources, such as Financial Lab with Reuters and Bloomberg terminals, and databases such as CRSP, Compustat, Amadeus and Datastream (via WRDS system).
Special features regarding research activitiesThe Frankfurt School is characterised by leading international research in the areas of Finance and Management. Thanks to the international and varied nature of its faculty, the Frankfurt School covers a broad spectrum of research topics. As a Business School, it places particular value in its research on the relevance of such research for practice and maintains continuous exchanges with high-quality international researchers and representatives of business.
Research topics reflected in teachingThe faculty is encouraged to present in each course current internal (or external) research findings briefly – this is, after all, one of the reasons for our research orientation. The Frankfurt School does not distinguish between seminars and lectures; most courses combine elements of both. As such, there are no highlighted research topics that are dealt with in separate courses.
