Which topics play an important role in business and in different industries? That is the question we want to answer within the Network Clubs. In order to assess and grasp the complex variety of the business world and the world in general, we offer six different clubs focussing on different fields. Please find a description of our clubs below.
Alumni and corporate partners have already discussed and touched on a wide variety of topics in the past. You can find some of these topics with every distinct club section. In addition, the speakers from the past share their insights into the experiences they have made speaking in and working with the Network Clubs.
The Diversity Club comprises two similarly significant network communities - the Women in Business Community and the Pride@MBS Community.

Peter Maier, President Industries and Customer Advisory at SAP
"I’d like to thank the Technology & IT Club for this great opportunity to interact with its members and discuss the SAP strategy and Industry Cloud positioning. I truly appreciated the insightful discussion and perspective from this club on innovation and technology."
"I am looking forward to nurturing this collaboration in the future! And I encourage you to visit sap.com/industrycloud for more info and open positions."
Christophe Lautray, CSO and Managing Director at Linde Material Handling
"Preparing for the session was quite a learning for me.
Of course, in our professional careers, we have organized and chaired hundreds of meetings. But most of the time for 'captive' audiences such as your own collaborators or customers, and for topics of limited scope.
And here, although being an experienced professional in my field of expertise, I had to find out how to attract non specialists into our environment. And also how to broaden the scope, and relate our topic to other problematics of our societies."
"The exercise was time consuming, but enriching. I also sincerely appreciated the kindness and professionalism of the organization team, thanks again for your kind welcome.
Finally, the interactions with the participants were very much a reward for me. And they asked the relevant questions, straight to the point!
Whatever your industry or topic, I would recommend each of us, as managers, to confront once in a while with such a stimulating exercise!
My only wish? Try again!"
Britta Mues-Walter, Founder and Recruiting Professional in Executive Search
"It's a great opportunity to talk and engage with an attentive and highly intelligent audience, which at the same time likes challenges and is ambitious in terms of his/her career."
"Doing the session together with Carol and Christa as a team approach, was a wonderful experience. With a format which offers three hours and more one has a huge opportunity to dig deeper, have everyone participating and network. As we all put our hearts and brains in it, we wanted to make sure that everyone leaves the evening with new tools, impressions and an enriched network."
"Mannheim Business School and the responsible team are welcoming, highly professional and supportive to make it a great experience for everyone, thanks to you Elisabeth and Jens. On top the facilities are modern & beautiful and food and drinks are served as well."
