Frankfurt School Sharing Information on Progress (SIP) Report - View Report

Period Covered: Jul 2014 to Jun 2016

In its 2016 SIP Report, Frankfurt School highlights three key achievements supporting the Principles for Responsible Management Education at the School. These include (1) Frankfurt School‘s Development Finance Summer Academies (2) the School’s student initiative FS Charity, and (3) the School’s research in the fields of ethics, global responsibility and sustainability.

Achievements Curriculum Integration in the Field of Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability

In order to strengthen the field of corporate social responsibility and sustainability Frankfurt School has recruited two professors with a philosophic academic background who primarily devote their research and publication projects to the above mentioned fields. To gain insight in completely different approaches of theses areas Frankfurt School has negotiated a cooperation with Sankt Georgen Graduate School of Philosophy and Theology. In the course of a so called „circle lecture“ professors from both universities reflect on current topics of society related to responsibility and sustainability. Frankfurt School aims at deepening this cooperation and integrating the insights into courses of degree and non-degree programmes as well as in its consulting activities.
Frankfurt School takes over a particular responsibilty in the field of development finance. It aims at contributing to develop financial markets globally to make them more stable and inclusive at the same time. We support the development of a microfinance industry. We are non-discriminatory to any type of financial institution that provides microfinance services in a sustainable and profitable way. In this perspective, we wish to contribute to “mainstreaming” microfinance, making it an integrated part of financial systems and providing fully-fledged financial services to the majority of people in developing countries. In order to sustain the theoretical background Frankfurt School has recently established a chair of „Development Finance“ and hired a professor who is exclusively responsible for a new Master of Science programme called „Master of Development Finance“. Frankfurt School plans to extend this area of research.
