The bodies of the association are the board of directors and the board of trustees.
The board of directors consists of five non-university members who have significant professional experience and a special connection to the university – mostly as graduates. In addition, the President is a permanent member of this body and thus is a direct link to the university. In accordance with the statutes, the board of directors is elected every two years.
In addition to the board of directors, a board of trustees was created which consists of leading personalities from the business world and society. They share their experience, knowledge and connections in an annual strategy meeting with the board of directors, in this way benefiting the university. In accordance with the statutes, the board of trustees is elected every three years.
The reason I serve on the board of trustees of the Friends of the University of Mannheim is the permanent interest in “my” alma mater, to which I owe beautiful, interesting and eventful years of study and the tools for a successful professional life.
