The Master of Finance is one of Frankfurt School’s flagship programmes. The position entails teaching up to four sections of the first-semester course in introductory financial accounting, covering IFRS from a foundational to an intermediate level. The course further expands into select topics in Financial Statement Analysis such as ratio analysis, credit analysis, bankruptcy prediction models and the basics of pro-forma statement derivation in preparation of subsequent elective courses in the programme. The total length of a course is 44 academic hours (corresponding to about 33 time hours). As of today (Aug 11, 2021), the course is planned to take place in a hybrid format, blending physical classroom presence at our Frankfurt Campus with online student participation via Zoom.
