Moreover, as the Name Boot Camp portrays we will offer some sportive activities in the morning and/or evening hours. Students will also have access to the on-sight Campus gym.

Course leader

Several professors from inside and outside Frankfurt School, Finance, Banking and Management experts. The professors work hand-in-hand with policy-makers and executives to offer tailor-made solutions to real-world questions.

Target group

Frankfurt School’s Finance Boot Camp targets Bachelor and first year Master students seeking to develop or deepen their skills in one of Europe’s leading financial and business centers: Frankfurt am Main.

Course aim

The Finance Boot Camp
Perhaps you did not choose to study Finance at university, but now you are curious to find out more about the major financial products and investment strategies. You want a better understanding of the news or dream about
becoming the next George Soros. Maybe you will be a new student next fall and want to get a jump start on your studies. Either way, The Finance Boot Camp with the Banking Game will be a fun addition to your summer. The ProBanker online game simulates a competitive Banking environment where managers acquire deposits and long-term capital and distribute them in the form of loans and investments. An engaging and interactive experience paired with insightful lectures on finance & banking in a nutshell and site visits to financial institutions.

The Management Boot Camp
Covering different topics in strategy, leadership, and management; The Management Boot Camp gives students the unique opportunity to hone-in their skills in a dynamic and interactive classroom setting. Apart from lectures, students have the opportunity to try their hand in the beer distribution game, an interactive learning simulation designed to reinforce the fundamentals of supply chain management invented by the famous Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This is a type of gamification that is used to experience typical coordination problems of a supply chain process. It reflects a role-play simulation where several participants play with each other. Paired with the game, students get the opportunity to visit a beer brewery in the Region to learn more about the real-life processes and challenges in supply chain management.
