Perspectives

“I came to Mannheim as a part of my international immersion module at Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. The theme of our program was ‘Doing Business in Germany’. The professors made sure we not only understood the commercial aspects of doing business in Germany but also socio-political and cultural aspects. Our classroom learnings were supplemented by carefully planned company visits, which gave us a very good perspective of the technical advancement of German companies, the inner workings of the German ‘Mittelstand’ and the industrious nature of the German people. I will never forget the time spent at Mannheim – I never thought such a short program would have such an impact on me.”

I came to Mannheim Business School as a part of my international immersion module at Indian Institute of Management, Calcutta. The lure of being in Germany, along with the reputation of the school were motivations behind choosing Mannheim for the international immersion. We were treated very well by the administration staff at Mannheim, the accommodation provided was very nice and everyone went out of their way to make sure that we were comfortable. 

The theme of our program was ‘Doing Business In Germany’. From discussions on the historical aspects of German culture to current European economic, the professors covered a wide range of topics and made sure we not only understood the commercial aspects of doing business in Germany but also socio-political and cultural aspects.

I especially liked the stimulating environment created in the classroom by the professors. They encouraged us to be active and were very forthcoming in giving us feedback on our presentation and class participation. The professors provided very unique perspectives to allow us to get a comprehensive picture of the state of affairs in Europe in general and Germany in particular. 

Our classroom learnings were supplemented by carefully planned company visits. The choice of Karcher, Kleemann, ECB and Hager gave us a very good perspective of the technical advancement of German companies, the inner workings of the German ‘Mittelstand’ and the industrious nature of the German people.

Additionally, the camaraderie that the 25 participants from my college shared both inside and outside the class allowed us to improve our communication skills and gave us an opportunity to bond which we seldom got at IIM Cal due to our busy schedule. It's not a coincidence that we are known as the ‘Deutsch’ in our batch, which we think is an honor.

I will never forget the time spent in Mannheim, I never thought such a short program would have such an impact on me. I would like to thank the professors and the staff of Mannheim Business School. I hope I get a chance to come back, someday.
