Mannheim Master in Management

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 according to 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 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!
