I decided to study the MMM program due to its wide range of available courses, for example in the field of Sustainable Business. In addition to that, I liked the possibility of choosing a minor. This way I had the opportunity to attend courses in Psychology. After completing an international bachelor’s degree, I was genuinely happy to have the opportunity to study abroad again – I am very much looking forward to my semester abroad at the IPADE Business School in Mexico City! In my opinion, online teaching during the current coronavirus crisis also works very well at the University of Mannheim.
The MMM program quickly won me over with the flexibility and broad range of specializations it offers. I have the freedom to choose my courses in accordance with my own preferences and to pursue my interests. In addition, the University of Mannheim offers a wide range of continuing education options, networking opportunities, and recreational activities that perfectly complement student life.
The MMM program offers not only a wide range of courses covering all interests, but also a challenging environment that encourages individual and group learning as well as personal initiative. The teachers and the university are always ready to help and eager to provide all students with a rewarding study experience. Coming to Mannheim for my master’s degree was definitely the right choice.
After graduating from the University of Mannheim with a bachelor's degree in Business Administration, I quickly realized that I wanted to pursue a master's program in Mannheim. The University of Mannheim has convinced me because the university has an outstanding reputation in economics and business administration and the Mannheim Master in Management program has numerous specialization modules. My degree plan was solely based on my interests. The Spitzensport-Stipendium Metropolregion Rhein-Neckar, the first of its kind in Germany, played an important role in realizing my dream of completing an academic training while being a professional athlete. Looking back on my time in the Schloss will always make me happy.
The Mannheim Master in Management program combines individuality and internationality perfectly with each other. On the one hand, the master’s program gives you the opportunity to create an individual degree plan choosing from a wide range of courses covering all subject areas – if you take an elective subject, you can even choose classes from other schools. On the other hand, students at the University of Mannheim can be assured that the content of their studies is of the highest quality, always up-to-date, and relevant to the business world, and that graduates of the MMM program therefore enjoy a strong reputation even beyond the country's borders.
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!
