Short answer: no.
Long answer: no, but it depends.
Germany has great public schools (Mannheim, LMU Munich, Muenster, Cologne and Goethe being the cream of the crop) and good private schools (WHU; HHL) two second tier private schools ( frankfurt and EBS) and a lot of very very very bad private schools. I guess frankfurt school does okay in finance but you probably will have a tough time getting any consulting gigs out of their programms...
With WHU, if you decide to go private, you get better finance recruiting but also better recruiting for consulting and corporate gigs...
That all being as it is, most german companies will not care where you graduated.

As far as europe goes, frankfurts programms are way behind LSE; HEC ; ST GALLEN; Bocconi etc....

it's a decent school if you want to work in frankfurt and german speaking countries.
