You are not only curious but convinced that the Mannheim MBA is the right choice to take your career to the next level? You do not only want to prepare yourself professionally for future management challenges but also develop on a personal level in an international and demanding environment? If this is the case we look forward to receiving your application! The program starts every September, but since there are only limited places available, we strongly recommend getting in contact with us as early as possible.
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. GMAT/GRE is no prerequisite for admission to the program but it is necessary for applying for one of our scholarships.
Learning with and from each other is a central component of the Mannheim MBA. Thus, we constantly seek personalities who enjoy enriching the group with their competences, experiences, and commitment.
The formal criteria at a glance:
We strongly encourage you to visit one of our information sessions or make an appointment with our admissions manager for a personal consultation before applying to the program.
Fill out the Mannheim MBA Application Form, the Company Support Form and the Reference Form and send it together with the required documents to Mannheim Business School via email@example.com and cc to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Three days before your selection interview, we will send you three questions that we ask you to answer filming yourself in a short video (60 seconds per answer). The video has to be handed in by 4 PM CET one day before the interview will take place.
The Admissions Manager and a member of our admissions committee will take a holistic view at your application and conduct a personal or web-based interview with you (45-60 minutes).
At a second date, you will join a group of fellow applicants and two members of our Part-Time MBA Alumni Board for an online group interview.
An admissions decision will be made based on the evaluation of your application package, the selection and group interviews within two weeks. You will then receive the admission notification and contract. Sign and return the admission contract to Mannheim Business School.
With this rigorous selection process, we make sure that the right personalities are found for the new class as well as for our Mannheim Network, since an essential part of the program is based on team work. The additional group interview is your opportunity to network with potential classmates and your chance to show your commitment to learning and working with and from your peers.
