Academics

Being a student at the University of Mannheim means you get to study in a palace, live in a colorful city and benefit from unique, outstanding and international programs.


I decided to study at the University of Mannheim because of it’s excellent reputation in the field of Business Administration, the program’s international orientation, and the integrated semester abroad. Another important aspect is the wide range of courses students can choose from, which allows you to get to know all fields of Business Administration – from accounting to HR to marketing. On top of that, lectures are held in a palace building! This made the Mannheim program in Business Administration my first choice.

The University of Mannheim offers excellent Teacher Education programs. As students, we receive an exceptional academic training in subject-specific topics complemented by courses in Teaching Methodology and Education Science that have a strong practical orientation, thus preparing us very well for our future daily routine as teachers. Furthermore, we have the opportunity to choose a third subject, the so-called Master of Education Extension Subject, while still in the bachelor’s program. This way, it is possible to pursue one’s own interests and even improve one’s career prospects without having to extend the duration of the program. This is the reason why the University of Mannheim is an outstanding university to study Teacher Education.

At the University of Mannheim, I was able to combine my passion for Philosophy with Economics, which made for really diverse studies. At the same time, I learned that there are always multiple answers to one and the same question. The ability to view things from different angles forms the core of my academic education.
