Frankfurt School is an international business school with students from nearly 100 countries and all five continents. It has earned its place as one of Europe’s foremost business schools and is housed in an iconic building in the campus zone of Frankfurt that underlines its principles of openness, collaboration, innovation and change. 

It focuses on finance, economics and management, and offers Bachelor, Master, MBA and doctoral programs as well as executive education courses and seminars for professionals and trainees.

Frankfurt School is regularly placed among the top performers in major university rankings. It ranks 24th in the latest Financial Times (FT) European Business School Ranking and is listed as the best German business school in the Times Higher Education Global University Employability Ranking.

From workstations to virtual classrooms: keeping it human

The academic ethos of Frankfurt School enables engagement from every audience, ensuring that everyone is seen and every voice is heard regardless of location and mode of participation. It supports diversity and encourages learning and cooperation across audiences.

Already active in remote learning, Frankfurt School had been looking for a virtual classroom that offers the highest levels of interactivity and convenience. The new partnership with Barco enables all that. The school has implemented a 48-seat system that allows for the best learning experience for teaching, training and an increasing number of online events.

“The delivery of higher education has fundamentally changed in the last two years and our students expect a high quality of online and blended content that Barco promises to deliver with their innovative solution,” according to Oliver Matthews, Frankfurt School’s Vice President Degree Programs & Chief Marketing Officer. “We are really excited to take advantage of this.”

Our customers are senior executives who understand the need for continuous learning, but they need to be able to fit courses into their schedule. Barco weConnect offers them the convenience of joining from their office or an airport lounge during a business trip, and still receive the very high-quality teaching they are used to from Frankfurt School Executive Education.
