"Purposeful communication is a relevant strategic tool for all leaders. In my course we approach communication holistically and understand it’s strategic value for leaders. Persuasive communication skills not only fire up employees and lead them to get work done, but also improve the capacity of leaders to negotiate effectively with stakeholders. " 

Prof. Dr. Selin Atalay, Professor for Marketing, FS

"In my session, we will talk about how to design the roadmap for your organization’s digital transformation." 

Prof. Dr. Daniel Beimborn, Professor for Business Informatics, Universität Bamberg

"I observe that optimizing organization design to improve group decisions is an untapped source of value in most companies. In my lecture I focus on good versus bad decisions and I provide tools to make “good decisions”. And I would further emphasize that it is an exciting topic of increasing importance as AIs and humans jointly adapt to each other.

Prof. Dr. Thorbjørn Knudsen, Professor for Strategic Organisation, FS

"Managers face multiple dependencies on external influences, especially ever new regulatory requirements. In my lecture we will focus on these dependencies and discuss strategies to cope with them. During the lecture I would like to make experiences in the management of the interfaces of politics, society and economy tangible with practical examples and enable a look into the toolboxes of the actors. As a participant you will benefit from the combination of strategic concepts and practically experienced examples, especially in crisis management."

Prof. Dr. hc. mult. Roland Koch, Professor of Management Practice in Regulated Environments, FS

"Many of our Frankfurt School alumni have reached important positions in top management. For them (and not only for them!), our carefully crafted continuing education program - compact, focused, perceptive - is the perfect platform for them to discover many new facets of the timeless and current topics that are essential for every leader today and tomorrow."                   

 Dr. Markus Mädler, Senior Lecturer, FS

"My lecture aims at inspiring leaders to introduce state-of-the-art performance measurement and strategy execution. We will explore innovative best practices to capture sustainable performance and to convey purpose throughout the organization and beyond."

Prof. Dr. Matthias Mahlendorf, Professor of Managerial Accounting, FS

"Today's executives and decision-makers have to deal with a flood of different and fast-moving information. While it is difficult to assess which information is valid, it is crucial for effective decision making. Leaders are able to navigate a tangle of disparate information. And are strive to share only valid information, even when it conflicts with their own motives and goals." 

Prof. Dr. Claus Rerup, Vice President Academic Affairs, FS

"In my lecture I focus on how to use finance to create value, and how this value creation is affected by ESG issues. With my lecture I like to convey that any good strategy needs to be translated into sound financial decisions. My aim of the lecture of the AMP programme is to be accessible also to managers that so far had little to do with corporate finance. Participants in my lecture will benefit from getting a hands-on knowledge in corporate finance and ESG. "

Prof. Dr. Zacharias Sautner, Professor of Finance, FS

"In my session, we will explore how executives can best deal with innovation projects that are loaded with strong uncertainties. We will discuss how to value and manage experimentation, and how to evaluate the success of a firm’s innovation endeavors."

Prof. Dr. Jochen Schlapp, Associate Professor of Operations and Technology Management, FS

"Many companies claim to be customer-centric, but few truly are. During the AMP we will focus on understanding how creating value for and from customers are complements and not opposites and how this is key to successful customer-centric management."

Prof. Dr. Christian Schulze, Associate Professor of Marketing, FS

"In my lecture I focus on key aspects of good governance. With my lecture I like to convey better corporate behavior. Participants in my lecture will benefit from the correct approach to an important topic. "

Prof. Christian Strenger, Center for Corporate Governance, HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management
