However, as an applicant, you will not suffer any disadvantages as a result. The following changes apply to the Mannheim Master in Management program:
The MMM convinced me in particular through its freedom of choice. Every student can personalize his or her curriculum. I have been concentrating on Accounting and Operations Management so far and I am very happy with it.
At the MMM I like the quality and variety of the lectures as well as the proximity to renowned companies. In addition, Mannheim is the perfect city to live due to its size, where everything is available and at the same time quickly reachable. The interaction between the students is excellent and I would choose the MMM at any time.
After already completing my Bachelor's in Business Administration here, I returned to Mannheim for the MMM. I think the MMM is unique in its variety and quality nationwide. As a state university, Mannheim is able to compete with private business schools worldwide. The value for money is perfect!
Leaving Mannheim in order to pursue my master’s degree elsewhere was no option for me. I can go everywhere by bike, will never get lost in the city center’s Quadrate, and there is always a lot going on on and around the campus around our beautiful Schloss. Mannheim is really attractive for students.
