Comprehensive and Challenging

No day is like another in the Mannheim MBA program. The numerous different program elements make sure of that. It is a demanding mix that prepares the leaders of tomorrow for their future challenges in an aimed, sound, and practice-oriented way.

Teamwork is an essential element of the educational concept. At the beginning of the program, participants are divided into so-called Multi-Competence Teams, which are deliberately set up heterogeneously with regard to cultural, professional, and academic experiences. In these small groups, you complete a central part of the program, the Business Master Project, whereas the Social Class Project brings together the class as a whole for one common goal. This enables you to impressively experience the positive force of diversity.

Social Class Project

Taking Responsibility

Responsibility is one of the core values of Mannheim Business School. And it is not just a topic for the classroom, but a commitment to action. The best example of this is the Social Class Project, which is an integral part of the Mannheim MBA curriculum. Every class independently plans and implements its own group project in the Rhine-Neckar Metropolitan Region, organizing everything itself and directly applying its management skills to the task. The list of previous social projects is impressive and symbolize our commitment to taking responsibility for the society.



Business Master Project

Masterpiece in Practice

The Business Master Project is undeniably the crowning moment of the Mannheim MBA adventure. The project offers participants the unique opportunity to develop a solution for a complex business issue in their Multi-Competence Team, using all of their experience and newly gained knowledge and methodological skills. In small groups, you can either slip into the role of consultants and experience a real-life challenge within a company or develop a business plan for a completely new entrepreneurial idea. Interdisciplinary work is an indispensable element of the project. Naturally, participants are assisted during the project by experts from the faculty and the corporate world.
