Your contact person is Ms. Christina Paul (christina.paul[at]uni-mannheim.de), departmental exchange coordinator at our Business School.

If you are a Master's/MBA student: You can choose Business courses from all master's level courses. Should your home university allow you to take selected bachelor's level courses, those are of course also open to you.

IMPORTANT points about this course:
You need to register in portal-2 to receive the lecture contents. Lectures will be pre-recorded and uploaded every week (no face-to-face lectures). Live face-to-face Q&A sessions will be offered every three weeks. You need to make your decision to stay in the course or leave it before we announce the case study (on 09.03.2022).

The case study is considered part of the final grade; therefore, you cannot leave the course after announcing the case study challenge. Each student sends an individual or group request to join the case study. We need these emails to structure the teams. Students can join the course after09.03.2022 (on certain conditions; we announce them in the first lecture).
Leaving the course after this deadline is not possible, though. All students taking the case study should register on portal-2 for the final exam. If not, an enforced exam registration would be made from the students' office.
Students may pass the course only if they pass the case study AND they pass the written exam.

** GERMAN ** WICHTIGE Punkte zu diesem Kurs: Sie müssen sich im Portal-2 registrieren, um die Vorlesungsinhalte zu erhalten. Von uns aufgezeichnete Vorlesungen werden jede Woche hochgeladen (keine Präsenzvorlesungen). Alle drei Wochen werden Q&A Sessions in Präsenz angeboten. Sie müssen sich vor der Bekanntgabe der Fallstudie (am 09.03.2022) entscheiden, ob Sie im Kurs bleiben oder ihn verlassen.
Die Fallstudie wird als Teil der Endnote betrachtet. Daher können Sie den Kurs nach der Bekanntgabe der Fallstudie nicht mehr verlassen. Jeder Student schickt eine Einzel- oder Gruppenanfrage zur Teilnahme an der Fallstudie. Auf Basis dieser E-Mails werden die Teams strukturiert. Studierende können nach dem 09.03.2022 in den Kurs einsteigen (unter bestimmten Bedingungen, die wir in der ersten Vorlesung bekannt geben). Ein Ausstieg aus dem Kurs nach dieser Frist ist jedoch nicht möglich. Alle Studenten, die an der Fallstudie teilnehmen, sollten sich auf Portal-2 für die Klausur anmelden. Falls nicht, erfolgt eine Zwangsanmeldung über das Studentensekretariat. Die Studierenden können den Kurs nur bestehen, wenn sie die Fallstudie UND die schriftliche Prüfung bestehen.

Learning target:
Students will learn tools to analyze and develop business models and how to tweak them towards growth. They solve real-life challenges in new ventures in a project format and learn first-hand what it is like to work in a startup by gaining real startup experience. By being (temporally) part of a startup team, they will acquire managerial skills and gain familiarity with problem solving in practice. Team work experience, profound presentation and consulting skills are also core learning outcomes of this class.

Description:
You do not think inside the box and love working on challenging projects? Next to studying, you are eager to apply your knowledge in the real world and learn from startup teams on the project? You like new ideas and love their execution? You want to dive deeper into the anatomy of business models and get the unit economics right? Then you should opt for Entrepreneurial Spirit. The course is a new format to foster startup growth, entrepreneurial culture and to advance the startup ecosystem at and around the University of Mannheim. With their expertise, the students support the startups in improving their products, services and business models and help them to be more competitive. We will work with real companies in this course and you will actively contribute to their growth. Thus, high dedication, willingness to take over responsibilities and professionalism are a prerequisite. There are two tracks in MAN 633: One for students who have no startup project yet and one for students (individual or founding team) who work on their own advanced startup project.
MAN 633 helps to advance startups in our network by sending students teams as a task force (Inside the Venture Track) but also helps students with an advanced startup idea to reach their next milestones and gain support in a course format (Own Venture Track). For both tracks, the course starts with an initial educational full-day workshop. The initial workshop is the same for both tracks and provides hands-on tools to assess, structure and solve startup challenges. The workshop part is concluded with an exam (20%). Following this educational element, the students form interdisciplinary teams of 3–5 and solve challenges in real ventures. Experienced MCEI coaches will work closely with the student consulting teams to make sure that they are on track to maximize their learning experience while simultaneously permitting the teams to have as much fun as possible.
Inside the Venture Track (for students with no own startup)
Offers students who have no own startup but want to experience the startup world an excellent opportunity to work at eye-level with an experienced real-world startup team. The concept:  Solving challenges of young companies with student approaches and on-site by student teams. Assisted by an experienced MCEI coach, the students carry out joint projects with the startup after a needs analysis. The startups are recruited via our extensive MCEI network. The projects have a mid-term presentation (20%), end presentation (20%) and a final managerial report (40%).
Own Venture Track (for students who already work on their advanced startup project)
Further advance your own startup in class. Your performance appraisal will be according to milestones set at the beginning of class and you will receive continuous counseling by MCEI coaches. MAN 633 offers you the opportunity to recruit a student team from class to work on your startup’s challenges during the course just like in our “client companies” in the Inside the Venture Track. Please approach the instructors upon course registration to sort out whether your startup project is eligible for our Own Venture Track. This offer is for advanced startup projects only – you can start greenfield (i.e., at idea stage) in MAN 631. The projects have a mid-term presentation (20%), end presentation (20%) and a final managerial report with continuous status updates (40%).
The direct integration of the students into the startups within the framework of the course enables a joint action-oriented learning experience on both sides. In addition, we strengthen the startup community, promote startup companies and potential startups, integrate startups directly into the university's offerings and support the transfer of knowledge and technology between the university and the economy

Description:
Im Modul MAN 676 „Ausgewählte Herausforderungen im Public Management“ werden wir uns im FSS 2021 unter dem Themenschwerpunkt „Behavioral Public Administration“ mit verhaltenswissenschaftlicher Forschung im Public & Nonprofit Management beschäftigen.

Verhaltensoriente Forschungansätze (insb. Experimente) haben sich in vergangenen Jahren zunehmend etabliert, nicht zuletzt in verschiedenen thematischen Bereichen des Public & Nonprofit Management. Vor allem Experimente werden vermehrt eingesetzt um Kausalitäten überprüfen zu können und so Limitationen anderer Forschungsansätze (insb. Survey-Befragungen) auszuschließen. Der Modul bietet ein vertiefendes Verständnis von verhaltensorientierter Forschung und Experimenten, um Forschungsergebnisse zu verstehen und kritisch reflektieren zu können. Der Modul soll außerdem ermöglichen erste eigene Forschungsideen mit Bezug zum Public & Nonprofit Management zu entwickeln. 

Der Modul vermittelt daher ein Grundverständnis methodischer Ansätze und befasst sich insbesondere mit den wesentlichen Aspekten zur Umsetzung von verhaltensorientierter Forschung. Die Modulinhalte werden anhand von publizierter Forschung mit Bezug zum öffentlichen Sektor diskutiert. Die Literatur beinhaltet aktuelle Forschungsartikel, welche sich mit Kernfragen des Public Management befassen. In diesem Kontext ermöglicht verhaltensoriente Forschung ein präzises Verständnis des Verhaltens von öffentlichen Angestellten und Bürger*innen. Wichtiger Bestandteil ist die kritische Reflektion der Forschungsliteratur, mit dem Ziel die Studierenden auch hinsichtlich der Limitationen von verschiedenen Forschungsdesigns zu sensibilisieren.

Description:
Companies are currently spending millions of dollars on data-gathering initiatives, but few are successfully capitalizing on all this data to generate revenue and increase profit. Converting data into increased business performance requires the ability to extract insights from data through analytics.

Marketing analytics is the practice of measuring, managing and analyzing marketing performance to maximize its effectiveness and optimize return on investment (ROI) of marketing efforts. With a profound understanding of marketing analytics, marketers will be more efficient and will improve the performance of their marketing actions and minimize wasted marketing dollars.

This course covers the three pillars of analytics – descriptive, predictive and prescriptive – within the marketing context. Students will be exposed to several methods such as linear regression, logistic regression, multinomial regression and machine learning methods (e.g., neural networks and Support Vector Machines). We will learn how to employ these methods for managerial decisions such as demand forecasting, pricing, and valuing customers.

Overall, students will develop a data analytics mindset, learn new tools, and understand how to convert numbers into actionable insights.

Learning target:
Participants will learn how to set up and manage sourcing projects while considering the broader strategic environment of the organization (competitive, functional, category, and supply base).
Instructor(s):
Christoph Bode
Description:
Increased levels of outsourcing make the selection of the right suppliers and the management the supply base more crucial than ever. Strategic sourcing focusses on all steps of the supplier selection process from a strategic perspective.
Building on basic knowledge of the operating model and strategic role of procurement, this module provides the theoretical background and the practical tools of sourcing from demand analysis all the way to business award decisions and the management of the ensuing buyer-supplier relationships. All major activities of pre-transaction (need specification/SoWs, supply market analysis, quotation management, negotiation, contracting) and post-transaction (purchase-to-pay process, expediting, conflicts) sourcing are covered. Special emphasis is put on advanced procurement approaches that aim at creating “value beyond cost” and on optimization levers both from a technical (e.g., product teardown analysis, cost modeling) and a commercial (e.g., current negotiation concepts, reverse auctions) perspective.
The module consists of regular lectures and exercise classes in which extended and short cases will be discussed. Guest speakers from industry will share their management and consulting experiences in procurement.
