Inclusive Finance Summer Academy

Monday, August 24, 2020 to Friday, August 28, 2020

Inclusive financial services providers are undergoing rapid change. Many face increasing competition, tougher regulation or are branching out to embrace new market segments. The Inclusive Finance Summer Academy seeks to equip participants with deep technical know-how across six major themes:  Risk Management, Housing Finance, Digital Finance, SME Banking, Rural Finance and Human Resources. You will visit major German institutions related to your elective and develop a better understanding of current trends in emerging markets and developing economies.

The mission at Frankfurt School – International Advisory Services has always been closely aligned with the UN economic development mandate. The Summer Academy is a unique practitioner platform where you can develop the leadership skills necessary to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Participants will choose between the six concentration tracks above and participate in broader exposure sessions every day. There are also crosscutting networking and teambuilding activities as well as field visits related to the five specialized tracks. This year, the CSEF Summer Academy will run in parallel to the other six tracks. Learn more about the CSEF summer academy.

The Frankfurt School of Finance & Management Summer Academy is designed to provide tangible take-home value. More than 1,000 participants over 20 years can’t be wrong – the trainings are cutting edge, delivered by leading experts in their field. Yet, most important for the great success of the Summer Academies is the profile of the participants who bring the regional expertise, diversity of backgrounds and the unique practitioner’s perspective. Learning from each other is an integral part of the Summer Academy’s training philosophy.
