Take the Next Step!

You are not only curious but convinced that the Mannheim MBA is the right choice to take your career to the next level?

There are two selection interviews to make sure that not only the brightest minds join the class but they are also the right fit for the program and our Mannheim Network in general: one with the admissions manager and one with a group of fellow applicants and members of our Alumni Board.
