The Clairfield Academy gives Frankfurt School of Finance students insights into M&A


Clairfield International sponsored a learning and outreach event for students at the Frankfurt School of Finance earlier this month. The invitation-only event for the top students at this leading business school gave a taste of life in the corporate finance world. The afternoon consisted of a workshop on valuation and a roundtable on opportunities and pitfalls in the M&A process, imparted by senior partners at Clairfield. It was followed by a reception in which students could learn about investment banking career opportunities and continue their questions on the corporate finance life in a more relaxed setting with Clairfield senior partners and associates.

This event took place under the auspices of the Clairfield Academy, Clairfield’s in-house training platform for junior-level staff. The Clairfield Academy provides analysts and associates with corporate finance, M&A, and strategic advisory education as well as training in presentation techniques, negotiations and other technical skills; and facilitates global networking, relationships, and exchange of skills and know-how among Clairfield team members.

This was the second year that Clairfield has sponsored an event for selected students at the Frankfurt School of Finance. “It’s a great way to introduce students to middle-market corporate finance, and on our side we get a first look at who we may be recruiting in the upcoming months,” said Albert Schander, founder and managing partner of Clairfield International in Germany. “It’s a pleasure to see interest in the middle market from the students and we are pleased to see increased participation from women and from international students.”
