CFA Institute Program Partnership
The CFA Institute recognizes the part-time Master of Arts in Finance as a CFA Program Partner. Recognition as a CFA Program Partner signals to students, employers, and the market that the part-time Master in Finance curriculum connects academics to professional practice and is well suited to preparing students to sit for the CFA examinations.
To earn this partnership, GBS was required to demonstrate that the Master in Finance curriculum covers at least seventy percent of the topics in the CFA's Candidate Body of Knowledge® including the CFA Institute Ethical and Professional Standards.
Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM)
The Frankfurt Institute for Risk Management and Regulation (FIRM) aims at setting new standards in the field of risk management and regulation. To this end, FIRM supports relevant research as well as higher education programs in Frankfurt am Main. The institute is supported by the Gesellschaft für Risikomanagement und Regulierung e.V. (Society for Risk Management and Regulation) which was founded in June 2009 and which is involved with well-known banks as well as service providers, associations, and the state of Hesse.

One of the immediate lessons learned from the recent financial turmoil is that there is a need for action in risk management, especially for banks. This is why FIRM strongly supports the training and continuing education on the topics of risk management and regulation at Goethe Business School.
