Summer School Finance

At our Summer School Finance in Bonn we will sharpen your mind, develop your analytical and decision-making skills and help you grasping complex challenges and strategic opportunities in today’s financial industry.

The Summer School Finance is a program specifically designed for students and young professionals worldwide who have a strong interest in the European and international financial markets. Furthermore, the program provides you with the possibility to improve your Business English for financial services and banking regulation. All courses are held in English.

The program gives you an overview of the concepts in the European monetary and financial system. The courses deliver a thorough insight into the financial markets and the international banking authorities in Europe and Germany. Additionally, it offers a great opportunity to experience practices of the banking business and to visit e. g. the European Parliament in Brussels or the European Central Bank in Frankfurt. Your skills in Business English for financial services and banking regulation will be trained by a native speaker. A strategic business simulation for banks (Bank Management Game) will foster your academic and professional practice.

In August 2017 our university offered the Summer School Finance for the first time. Please find more about the this year's program in our flyer and the following pictures.





Next year the Summer School Finance 2018 will take place in August again. More details will follow soon.
