Summer School Finance

The Summer School Finance is designed for students and young professionals worldwide with a strong interest in European and international financial markets as well as economics and business administration. The program provides an overview of the European monetary and financial system as well as insight into international banking in Europe generally and Germany specifically. It is a great opportunity to get a first-hand look at banking.

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.

It is also an excellent way to improve your business English, specifically in financial services and banking regulation. The English Course is taught by a native speaker.

Additional highlights include a visit to the European Parliament in Brussels and the German Central Bank in Frankfurt. A business simulation will strengthen your professional, practical, and soft skills.

Beside the program you discover the modern, lively and cosmopolitan city Bonn with a history of over 2.000 years. Beethoven’s native city is situated on the banks of the Rhine and surrounded by lovely nature. Read more.
