Master Master of Business Administration (MBA), ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA - Das Studium


With the inception of the ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA in 2004, two of Europe's leading business schools – ESSEC Business School and Mannheim Business School – joined forces to create a program that is European in tradition but international in outlook. Since then, the partner schools have widened the program's international scope by integrating an Asia-Pacific track in 2014, delivered from ESSEC's Singapore campus. Today, the program boasts of more than 1,500 alumni around the globe, successfully leading top international companies.

The ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA offers you a fast-track solution to career advancement through an international program designed to expose you to both core management basics and evolving cutting-edge business topics. The integrated leadership track prepares you to take on top business roles.

Master Master of Business Administration (MBA), ESSEC & MANNHEIM Executive MBA - Practical relevance

Practical relevance

Besides providing the latest business concepts with a clear practical orientation, Mannheim Business School aims to raise your awareness of social and ethical issues, such as sustainable development, and create a sense of solidarity and cohesion among the participants.

One class, one challenge: the class project
Every Executive MBA class has to implement a social project, which allows the participants to choose and contribute to a specific cause. The project is entirely run by the class, participants have to determine the scope and subject of the project, devise a strategy, and finally take responsibility for an effective execution. Regardless of its focus, the project strengthens the class spirit and allows the participants to make a lasting contribution to the community, leaving their own, unique footprint. The knowledge the participants acquire during their degree helps them to make the class project a success and adds to their understanding by giving them the chance to apply their skills in a different setting.
