The Frankfurt School of Finance & Management has announced that it will offer a full-time MBA program, beginning this fall.
The program duration is 15 months, which is split into two 6-month long semesters and a 3-month thesis component.
Classes will be delivered in three-day blocks each week, leaving the remainder of the time available for students to pursue internships or part-time employment.
The program is designed to cater to a growing number of international students who are interested in studying and working in Germany.
"Germany is a popular destination for many talented young managers," says Frankfurt School president Udo Steffens, and that at "the same time, many companies in Germany are looking for employees with international experience."
As such, the school, as part of the MBA program, is offering German language courses for those who need them. Those who already speak the language can instead choose to take classes in Chinese, French or Spanish.
Two of the course modules will be spent abroad, at South Africa's University of Cape Town’s Graduate School of Business and Italy's SDA Bocconi School of Management in Milan.
The Frankfurt School was recently accredited by AACSB.
With the new full-time MBA program, the Frankfurt School is adding to the growing number of English-language MBA programs offered in Germany. Other internationally-accredited business schools in the country that offer MBA programs in English include Mannheim Business School, Berlin's ESMT, WHU in Düsseldorf, and HHL Leipzig, among others.
To apply for the new MBA from the Frankfurt School, interested candidates must have at least two years of work experience and a bachelor's degree. A GMAT score is also required.
The program is set to begin in October.
Applications for the program are now open and will close on July 31st. However, those who would like to apply for scholarships have until June 30th to apply.
