Master Master of Business Administration (MBA), Mannheim MBA - Das Studium


The English-language Mannheim MBA pursues a clear objective: To prepare future managers for international top positions. Instead of giving students another one-for-all MBA, the Mannheim MBA allows students to personally round off their qualification profile. Participants of the Mannheim Full-Time MBA can complete the program either in 12 months or prolong their MBA experience by three months and use this additional term for an exchange with one of our renowned partner institutions abroad or an internship at a globally leading company.

Besides choosing to study abroad, participants can adjust their education experience by picking courses which best fit their individual requirements. Apart from the mandatory core courses, which convey fundamental business knowledge in the first two terms, the students have the opportunity to select elective courses. For example, participants may choose to enroll in Innovation Management, HR Management and Logistics, amongst a variety of other courses. Further, an integral part of the curriculum is the training in soft skills, which are essential to people in leadership positions. Participants, for instance, attend courses and workshops on such topics as “Intercultural Competence” and “Presentation Techniques”.

To further deepen the team-working skills and intercultural understanding of our students, the program places great emphasis on the company and social projects, which form part of the curriculum. Students complete these projects in Multi-Competence Teams, bringing together individuals from different national and professional backgrounds. Mannheim Business School is particularly proud of the social projects, which enable our students to support the local community.
