The Goethe University Frankfurt is among the top international university with different academic programmes. It was founded in 1914, in Frankfurt, Germany, and funded by wealthy and active liberal citizens of Frankfurt. The university was named after the poet and writer Johann Wolfgang von Goethe.
The Goethe University Frankfurt is situated in a cosmopolitan and international city that attracts a diverse body of students, who will have plenty of opportunities to learn and practice speaking in German. The university has a total of 46,842 students this year and counting.
In 2014, the Goethe University Frankfurt celebrated its 100th year anniversary. The institution has been affiliated with 18 Nobel Prize winners.
Awesome classes. Skilled supervisors, yet enough space to grow on your own terms. The Language, Literature, and Linguistic classes were awesome. Most beautiful campus in Europe. All in all best time of my life during the 5 years of the Master’s Program.View more
I appreciate the variety and diversity of the seminars offered. You have many opportunities to specialize in your field of interest. Especially with regard to critical theory, the social sciences department at the university in Frankfurt offers more choices than other universities. Likewise, due to the research focus in the program, there is a large and diverse range of methodological teaching (both quantitative and qualitative). The only criticism I have is that too little research into antisemitism is being conducted and respective teaching is being offered.
The campus is modern and equipped with the most modern technology, although we have only been able to use the campus fully since this semester due to Covid19. There should be more spaces in the library. The food in the cafeteria is too expensive.View more
Professors came from top universitites of the world, the campus and library is comfortable for studies and networking, during these corona times studies are online but still very comfortable, professors make study plans for us and try to understand the situation we are in. The only my concern is that studies are research and theory oriented, so I would recommend to make more practical courses.View more
I am currently a Master’s student in Business administration and have also graduated from Goethe University with Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business administration.
I am very pleased with the university as a whole. It is a privilege of having studied there. The organization of both study programs is very good and strict. One should be familiar with the requirements of the examination office. The teaching is very high-level. The lectures are held mostly by renowned professors or honorary professors from the industry. There are many initiatives and workshops which allow you to build a network of business connections in the finance world.
The first two semesters of the Bachelor (orientation phase) are the hardest and one needs to work very hard to pass. After that you are allowed to choose a specialization (finance & accounting, economics or management). In the final year, you can also choose among many elective courses which also provide more practical insights in the industry. The program is academic and requires lots of independent studying. At the beginning, the number of students is very high which might be a drawback sometimes. However, the number reduces significantly at the end of the Bachelor.
In the master’s program, the classes are of fewer students and group projects are often included which allows you to find contacts faster. There are only two mandatory courses if you choose a major in finance. Otherwise, the courses are elective which gives you the freedom to structure your master according to your interests and career preferences. The choice of courses is also diverse and rich.
Not to forget – the university has one of the best campuses in Germany, if not in Europe. The facilities and learning technologies are excellent and include a video transmission of some lectures.
Overall, I would definitely recommend both the Bachelor in Economics and Business administration and the Master in Business administration at Goethe University, especially for people interested in finance. The programs are indeed demanding, but ambitious students are rewarded and career opportunities are guaranteed.View more
The university is the right one if you are seeking a career in Economy, Law or even Medicine.
With 4 campuses in Frankfurt, it is surely one of the biggest universities in Germany.
The libraries are new and you can easily find the literature you need, online as well.
Goethe university is very modern and active. It is easy to approach the faculty and the administration in case of issues ( which will arise because one minus is that there is quite a lot of confusing admin to do at the start). Once you’ve gotten the hang of it you’ll be fine. There’s great opportunities to be active in student organisations, the university provides great support once the group is registered. Professors depending on the faculty are mostly easy going and approachable, it very more a study partner relation than a professor-student one. The mensas are open until 18:00 which allows you to stay late and eat cheaply in the university. There’s a library in almost every building, you will not struggle to find a quiet place to study in. Overall the university has a few flaws but the positives outweigh the negatives much much moreView more
