In July 2020 Frankfurt School will offer two summer schools “The Finance Boot Camp”, which has been running for more than six years and a brand new summer school “The Management Boot Camp”.

Students can choose between two different topics

  1. "Finance & banking in a nutshell” or
  2. ”Strategic improvement”

Both tracks take place at the same time, and social group activities will be organized together for all students. 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.

  • Lectures and tutorials led by industry experts
  • Small discussion groups
  • Site Visits
  • Interaction between students from all over the world
  • Team-building, social, and sporting activities 
  • Cultural excursion to Heidelberg (including a visit to their famous castle)
  • Exploring German food, drinks, and culture (including a guided city tour)

Finance Boot Camp 2020: The ProBanker Banking Game

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 2020: The MIT Beer game

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.
