Together with its partners in the ENGAGE.EU alliance (LUISS University, NHH Norwegian School of Economics, Tilburg University, Université Toulouse 1 Capitole, University of National and World Economy, WU Vienna), University of Mannheim is participating in the creation of a joint ENGAGE.EU University Campus to offer a range of physical and virtual mobility study opportunities.
Since fall 2020, students from above mentioned partner universities can apply for a range of online courses offered by University of Mannheim within the framework of the ENGAGE.EU Online Exchange Initiative (OEI).
As of fall 2022, ENGAGE.EU universities offer ENGAGE Modules, usually consisting of three courses in two consecutive semesters. The University of Mannheim will offer two ENGAGE.EU Modules, one at Bachelor's level, one on Master's level.
This module combines business studies, cultural studies, and sociological perspectives on today’s societal challenges across Europe. It enables ENGAGE.EU students to combine the sociology of migration with international cultural perspectives and to learn how state of the art research can support sustainable development. “Stories we tell ourselves about ourselves”: This definition of culture by Clifford Geertz describes the general theme of the course “International Cultural Studies”. The lecture revolves around core ideas, concepts, and theories that shape our society, history, and culture as well as the ways we act and think. In this flipped-classroom course, students will get to know some of the most influential thinkers of the last 250 years and their ideas . In an interactive setting, students will discuss the lives, theories, and implications of figures such as Rousseau, Horkheimer and Adorno or bell hooks for a changing, globalized world. The goal of the interdisciplinary lecture series “Science four Future” is to raise awareness for the potential of scientific research to contribute to sustainable development as defined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Mannheim-based researchers from various disciplines including economics, psychology, history, political science, philosophy, information systems, and business management (amongst others) will present cutting-edge research or basic knowledge on sustainability-related topics The overarching aim of the lecture “Ethnic Inequality” is to provide expertise in the field of migration sociology, paying attention not only to the description of main developments but also to the theoretical understanding and critical assessment of the sophisticated empirical evidence. The sociology of migration is undoubtedly one of the sociological areas that have experienced a noticeable upswing in recent years.

This module combines business studies in corporate governance and corporate social responsibility, enriched by adding international cultural perspectives to business students learning portfolio. The course “Corporate Governance” allows Master’s students in business studies to develop an understanding of important issues in corporate governance and of its relevance in a social, political, and economic context. The “Corporate Social Responsibility” lecture sensitizes participants to the relevance of CSR in daily business. The imparted knowledge enables students to handle the concept of “Corporate Social Responsibility” appropriately. In particular, students get an overview of the broad topic landscape of CSR and are provided with first-hand practitioner insights into it. This allows them to build the competencies required to define the scope, implications, and limits of CSR in management. The Humanities course „International Cultural Studies“ introduces ENGAGE.EU learners to cultural studies as a site of critical inquiry into society, history, and culture. Analyzing key terms, ideas, concepts, and theories that shape the ways we act and think (including ethnicity, gender, globalization, identity, ideology, popular culture, post-colonialism), this course takes on an international perspective. Students will get to know some of the most influential ideas and thinkers of the last 250 years and discuss the lives, theories, and implications of figures such as Rousseau, Horkheimer and Adorno or bell hooks for a changing, globalized world.
