The Frankfurt School Business Forum is a student-led initiative that organises a two-day event completely managed by Frankfurt School students. During these two days, students gather, learn and interact with renowned guests, partner companies and peers in various formats. From networking workshops and inspiring speeches to discussions and roundtables, we organise interactive sessions designed to empower participants with practical knowledge and networking opportunities.
The FS Business Forum, although completely organised by Frankfurt School students, invites all students interested in business, entrepreneurship and politics. All planned formats take place on Frankfurt School’s campus in Frankfurt.
At the FS Business Forum, participants can engage in workshops conducted by prestigious companies, connect meaningfully with industry experts and arm themselves with practical strategies to navigate through the business landscape.
I believe it is essential for our participants to gain comprehensive insights from various industries and sectors. That’s why we bring together speakers and partners from diverse sectors. While finance and consulting have their place, we cover Entrepreneurship, Consumer Goods, Politics and more. For instance, alongside esteemed names like ING, BNP Paribas, Berenberg, Bankhaus Metzler, Accuracy and EY, we have proudly partnered with Picnic Technologies and A. Lange & Söhne in this year’s event. This diversity makes the Forum a unique platform where many industries converge, providing valuable insights for everyone.
Year after year, I have found the Business Forum’s lineup of speakers truly stellar, and this year is no exception. Under the theme “Maze of Challenges – Ready to Lead,” the FS Business Forum welcomes guests who deliver insightful talks, explain today’s business complexities, and empower our participants to take charge in the ever-changing corporate world.
Among the speakers we welcome Holger Kneisel (member of the Executive Board of KPMG Germany), Wilhelm Schmid (CEO of A. Lange & Söhne), Bettina Stark-Watzinger (Federal Minister for Education and Research), Karl-Hendrik Magnus (Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company) and a lot more.
One of the most distinctive aspects of our event I value is its diverse array of formats and events designed to cater to different preferences and styles of engagement, ensuring a well-rounded and enriching experience for everyone involved. We have workshops for collaborative activities under guidance of industry leaders, speeches by prominent speakers and thought leaders, coffee chats for informal conversations with industry professionals, panel discussions for interactive audience participation, corporate dinners, roundtables and many more formats.
Through this rich tapestry of formats and holistic approach to engagement, our event creates a dynamic and inclusive platform for our participants.

Looking back at last year’s success, this year promises even more opportunities. This year particularly holds special significance as we mark the 5th anniversary of the Business Forum.
