Mannheim Business School: Management education on the highest international level

March 19, 2008

The Mannheim Business School is one of Europe’s leading institutions for business education. Through its close ties with the University of Mannheim and its faculty for business administration, it offers a strategic concept for lifelong business education and is a leader in undergraduate, graduate, postgraduate and executive education.

At Mannheim Business School, students receive a comprehensive business education from an internationally recognized faculty. Its professors are all leaders in their respective fields of research and have a strong network into industry.

In addition, Mannheim Business School regularly invites experienced executives from leading companies as well as faculty from its partner institutions to teach. Program participants also benefit from entrepreneurial projects realized with partner companies, which give the students hands-on experience and insight into current business issues.

Mannheim is ranked number one for business education in Germany in a whole host of different rankings and is the only German institution to be accredited by AACSB International, AMBA and EQUIS, the three leading international accreditation organizations (so called ‘Triple Crown’). With the less than 1 percent of the 3900-plus business schools, achieving this status worldwide, it is a sound endorsement of its programs.

An indicator of this quality is Mannheim Business School’s career service. Individual coaching and support in the search for the right job after the MBA are an integral part of the program. This has proven successful in the past, as the numbers of the last class to graduate show that all students got at least one job offer and 70 percent signed a contract before they even graduated.

The Mannheim Business School has a range of programs that interested students can apply for. Its main course, the Mannheim MBA is offered as full time 12-month intensive course for young professionals with at least three years work experience. Students also have the opportunity to spend time abroad at partner institutions throughout the world. All in all, four tracks are available (German, Eurasian, Transatlantic, European).

The stays abroad are not the only parts of the program allowing for an individual setting of preferences. Next to the obligatory “core courses”, which convey the fundamental business know-how in the first two terms, the students can choose from among the “electives” according to their interests. Some examples among the many options are courses in Innovation Management, HR Management and Logistics. In addition, the curriculum includes as integral part training in “soft skills”, qualities essential to people in positions of leadership. Examples of this aspect of the program are courses and workshops in topics such as “Intercultural Competence” and “Presentation Techniques”. Rounding off the program is a three-month team project at an international company: Small teams of students work on a complex challenge from the real business world and get the opportunity to apply the skills they acquired in their studies.

“The new Mannheim MBA will be a flagship course. Firstly, because it will bring highly qualified up and coming managers from the whole world to Mannheim and secondly because it offers talents from Germany the opportunity to complete a management education at an international top level,” said Mannheim Business School President Professor Dr. Dr. h.c. Christian Homburg.
