Open Programs in Finance

In the wake of the globalization of financial markets, finance has become a hugely dynamic and fascinating field, which is not only a key driver of organizations but also of industries and markets.

At the same time, finance is undergoing enormous changes, stemming mainly from disruptive technologies in the financial sector as well as from a regulatory wave in the aftermath of the financial crisis and the ever-increasing need for state-of-the-art risk management.

Alongside the two main drivers technology and risk&regulation, Goethe Business School offers a comprehensive portfolio of open and tailor-made programs. Due to the close cooperation with the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of Goethe University, the House of Finance, the Center of Excellence SAFE, we can draw on a large network of highly qualified lecturers.

Regulatory pressures, technology as well as monetary policies are the key drivers of the changing financial industry. Decision makers can only stay abreast when they strive for continuous learning and inspiration.
