Developing finance institutions are undergoing rapid change. Many of them face increasing competition, tougher regulation or are branching out to embrace new market segments. The Inclusive Finance Summer Academy seeks to equip participants with profound technical know-how in one of five subjects areas (operational risk management, SME banking, rural finance, housing finance and digital finance), visit major German institutions related to your elective, and develop a better understanding of current trends in developing communities.
20th anniversary of the Summer Academy
2019 is special as we will celebrate this year 20 years of Inclusive Finance Summer Academy. A special year calls for a special programme. The international Advisory Services from Frankfurt school will continue to follow UN mandate and focus even more in its educational programmes on applying the SDGs. Participants will be given the opportunity to choose between 5 tracks: SME Finance/Risk Management/Housing Finance/Agricultural Finance/Digital Finance and also the opportunity to assist to informative sessions every day, teambuilding activities and to visit institutions related to their specialisation track. This year, the CSEF summer academy will run in parallel to the other 5 tracks. Learn more about the CSEF summer academy.
Our Summer Academy is designed to provide take-home value: what you learn with us in Frankfurt you can straight away apply at your organisation. More than 500 participants can’t be wrong – our trainings are excellent! Yet, most important for the great success of our Summer Academies are the participants themselves! They bring in regional expertise, complementary experiences, and specialised knowledge. Learning from each other is an integral part of our training. In 2019, we expect to welcome participants from more than 50 countries. This is your opportunity to stretch your network all around the globe.
From July 9th to 13th 2018, 58 participants from 20 different countries joined our annual summer academy. They had the opportunity to assist to a very rich programme combining technical learning, soft skills and a better understanding of current trends like Fintech. A colorful social programme allowed them to network among peers and show their cultural specificities.
