The University of Mannheim has an exceptionally good reputation – when it comes to my field of study, it’s the best in many university rankings. Some friends of mine also studied in Mannheim and told me lots of good things about the university. So, I decided to apply as well. My fellow students come from all over the world. There are also good links with the business community. We can attend guest lectures and workshops with representatives from many different companies.
I really like the University of Mannheim. My professors are great and the support is outstanding. In my first statistics exam, my professor came over three times to make sure I had understood everything. This is certainly not the case at other universities. Moreover, I never felt like I had been left alone. When I moved to Germany, there were several introductory events, like the “Ersti Party” for first-year students, where I made my first friends.
Why did I choose Mannheim? I had several options, but the University of Mannheim is one of the best universities. Compared to other German universities, like Cologne or Berlin, Mannheim is much more international, especially when it comes to the school and the research concentrations.
