Why GBS?

Innovative Approach

We focus on innovative, specialized programs where we have a clear competitive advantage through our unique approach, our extensive know-how and our large network.

Excellent Faculty

Our master programs are taught by carefully selected, experienced lecturers. In addition to renowned academics, experienced practitioners are also an integral part of our teaching philosophy in order to ensure a balance between theory and practice. Our lecturers bring along many years of experience and expertise in their area of specialization and hold top positions in politics, business and at universities.


In all master programs, GBS cooperates with one of the Hessian "Houses of" competence centers - House of Finance, House of Pharma & Healthcare, House of IT - thus benefiting from the network and the respective specialist expertise.

Work-Study Balance

The job-compatible format of our master programs allows you to keep your studies, work and leisure in balance and ensures reliable, long-term planning. The lectures (semester 1-3) take place on 10 weekends per semester - Fridays (1pm to 8pm) and Saturdays (9am to 5pm). Every semester, lecture-free times are scheduled. In the 4th semester, a regular presence on campus is not required.

Participants in our part-time master programs are enrolled as regular students at Goethe University and have access to all student resources. The Goethe Card serves as a student ID and RMV semester ticket.

Germany's most beautiful Campus

The Campus Westend at Goethe University is located not only in the center of Germany, in the heart of the Main metropolis Frankfurt, but is also considered one of the most beautiful and modern campuses in Europe. The campus is perfectly connected to public transport and invites you to linger in cafes and the adjoining Grüneburgpark even after the lectures.
