Our Board of Trustees

Supports. Connects.

Goethe Business School is a wholly owned subsidiary of Goethe University and an independent non-profit organization under private law and does not receive any public funds. Therefore, GBS is highly dependent on private funding by companies, institutions, and patrons.

The Board of Trustees of GBS consists of top-profile representatives from science and industry and assists GBS in the development of its educational portfolio. Furthermore, it advises GBS management on fundraising and allocation of funds.
