The University of Mannheim has a clear goal: It aims to be one of the leading international universities in the field of economic and social sciences.
The organization “Freunde der Universität Mannheim” (Friends of the University of Mannheim) supports the university on its way to the top. In return, the university gives a lot back to its supporters – for example, they receive privileged access to outstanding students and scientists. We will present our goals and services on these pages.
The starting position is good. The University of Mannheim is considered one of the leading research institutions in its field in Germany. Surveys among HR managers, research rankings and analyses by leading business media attest to the exceptional position of Mannheim's Business School and Department of Economics. However, the international competition to attract the brightest minds has increased significantly over the last ten years. The University of Mannheim wants to accept the challenge and be successful in this competition.
