Location is one of the most important factors for your MBA – so why choose to do an MBA in Frankfurt? Apart from being one of the most liveable cities in the world, it is home to Germany’s largest stock exchange as well as the European Central Bank. That makes it a major financial hub not just in Germany, but the whole continent. So if you’re interested in launching a career in finance then Frankfurt is a great place to do it – but don’t forget that the city also has thriving media, aviation, law, and consulting industries.

In a city with 922 jobs per 1,000 inhabitants, you need a school that can tap into that thriving economy. Frankfurt School of Finance and Management is perfectly placed to do just that.

These events give students unrivaled access to one of the most dynamic job markets in Europe.

Frequently Asked Questions about ESMT

Do you see the current pandemic affecting intake of international students by ESMT?

We have not yet seen an impact on the number of international applications we have received. The biggest thing we are wary of is people being unable to get a visa whilst embassies are closed. We do have provision for online teaching for all of our programs in case this is still going on later in the year. Yet, we are very confident it will not come to that.

Why would you say 88% of the graduates end up working in Germany?

We find that for many people staying in Germany, it is a good way to get access to the European economy, which has lots of opportunities. All graduates can remain in Germany for 18 months following graduation, which is available for all graduates, regardless of nationality or income. So, for many people this is a unique opportunity to relocate. Students also have access to many more networking opportunities in Germany, and therefore have a better chance of finding their perfect job here. After the 18-month visa has expired, around 1/3 of students will stay in Germany long term, 1/3 will move somewhere else in Europe, and the final 1/3 will move internationally. One of the main benefits we see for our students is the increased exposure to networking whilst they study with us. This benefit, alongside the technical and leadership knowledge does almost always lead to an immediate benefit to your career. We have a careers team who will work with you to find a job after graduation.

What is the average age of the MBA class?

The average age of the MBA class is around 31, with the youngest in the class being 26 and the oldest members over 40, so it is a real mixture.
