Mannheim Business School Alumni e-Bulletin
On behalf of the faculty and staff of Mannheim Business School, I would
like to wish you and your loved ones a joyous and relaxing holiday season
and a prosperous 2012!
Looking back on the first year of my
term as President of Mannheim Business School, I count myself lucky to be
part of an outstanding community of ‘Mannheimers’. I am pleased to say
that we have jointly achieved excellent results during the past year. We
not only successfully launched an exciting new program, the MANNHEIM &
TONGJI Executive MBA, we also renewed our existing
reviewing curricula and introducing new study options to meet the demands
of the fast-changing business environment. In addition, it has been
particularly gratifying to see the positive development in the area of
Executive Education as we have been able to expand our portfolio of both
our Company Programs and our Open Courses.
I would like to thank
all our business and academic partners as well as our students and alumni
for making this possible and I hope you will continue with us on our
journey. I am confident that together we will continue to successfully
meet the challenges ahead.
Prof. Dr. Jens Wüstemann
