The University of Mannheim and its School of Business Administration offers a coherent, strategic framework for lifelong business education and are leaders in undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education.

The University of Mannheim was founded in 1907 originally as a municipal college of commerce. The university’s trademark is its distinct profile. This is characterized by Mannheim’s renowned economic and social sciences which are closely intertwined with humanities, law, mathematics and computer science. Its schools and research institutes cooperate in numerous international research networks. The university has a clear focus on business administration, economics and the social sciences.

The School of Business Administration, which is closely linked with MBS in terms of organization and faculty, is the leading institution in business administration in Germany, according to the rankings of the most important German news and business magazines. The faculty is particularly known for their outstanding research and high teaching standards. In addition, Mannheim is the only German institution to be accredited by AACSB International, EQUIS and AMBA, the three leading international accreditation organizations (Triple Crown).

Mannheim Master in Management (MMM) of Mannheim Business School

The Mannheim Master in Management is in keeping with the tradition of the German Diploma in Business Administration - a trademark and the ideal qualification for a successful career in the economy as well as in research. With the implementations of reforms as a result of the Bologna Process, the high standards of the "Mannheim philosophy" were transferred from the German Diploma in Business Administration to the Mannheim Master in Management.

The Mannheim Master in Management (MMM) is a consecutive study program awarding the academic degree "Master of Science" (M.Sc.) upon successful completion. The standard program length is four semesters.

The chairs of the Business School of the University of Mannheim cover a broad spectrum of fields within the Business Sciences and are well-known for their outstanding research activities.
