The accreditation by the Association for the Advancement of Colleges for Economics (AACSB) of the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration of the Goethe University and its programs demonstrates the faculty's continued commitment to excellence and to the optimization of its academic standards.

AACSB-accredited institutions are characterized by high-quality lecturers and relevant and demanding curricula, offering educational and career opportunities that go beyond the offerings of other institutions. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have AACSB accreditation.

As an advocate for management education, AACSB International represents a combined influence of more than 1,350 educational institutions, businesses and organizations in 83 countries, representing more than 40,000 faculty members and over 1 million students.

AACSB-accredited schools have the highest quality faculty, relevant and challenging curriculum, and provide educational and career opportunities that are not found at other business schools. Less than 5% of the world's 13,000 business programs have earned AACSB accreditation.


Since 2000, Zentrale Evaluations- und Akkreditierungsagentur (ZEvA) has accredited more than 2,000 degree programs at universities, universities of applied sciences and universities of cooperative education. The procedures applied by ZEvA are based on the regulations and structural guidelines of the Accreditation Council and the Standing Conference of State Ministers of Education and Cultural Affairs (KMK) and are geared to international standards.

The Master in Finance program has been screened by these accreditation agencies and has received full approval based on the ZeVA quality standards.


Our goal is to ensure the quality of teaching and studies in our Master programs at a consistently high level. That is why we are regularly reviewed by system-accredited Goethe University and the international AACSB.
