University of Mannheim Business School (Exchange)

The Program

The University of Mannheim is recognized as one of the leading academic institutions in Germany and Europe. The Business School is the first institution in Germany to be accredited by the three most important organizations AMBA, AACSB and EQUIS. With 400 partnerships with universities all over the world and around 1,000 international exchange students per academic year, the campus is truly international. In fact, in the 2011 International Student Barometer, a global survey for international students, University of Mannheim was ranked #1 in Germany for multicultural study environment.

The Academics

Courses offered at University of Mannheim Business School are published online around the end of November (for the following spring semester) and end of May (for the following fall semester) respectively. As most of the courses at the Business School are offered in a yearly rhythm, the previous spring semester course list is a good indicator of which courses will likely be offered again during the coming spring. Accordingly, the past fall semester course list gives you an idea of the courses offered during the coming fall. However, some changes do occur. You can find the course offer of the Business School here.

Please note that exchange students coming to Mannheim need to take the majority of their courses from the School through which they come on exchange (e.g. Business School ). However, you can also take German language courses or one or two courses from other Schools. For taking courses at other Schools, some restrictions apply. Visit this page for more information.

In order to earn credit at UConn for courses completed on this program, individual courses must be approved by a designated UConn course evaluator and assigned a UConn course number. Complete instructions for this process can be found under Academics.

The Experience

The University is mainly located in Mannheim’s palace – the largest baroque palace in Germany. Mannheim is a multicultural city in the northern corner of the state of Baden-Württemberg and is about 70 km south of Frankfurt. With a population of 320,000, it has a city center small enough to be explored by foot, but also big enough to offer a vibrant urban life with lots of cafés, cinemas, cultural events and museums. The university campus has a very central location and is within walking distance of the city centre.

Thanks to Mannheim’s central location and direct connection to Germany’s extensive public transportation system, a variety of charming German towns are easily within reach. Even France and Switzerland are only a relatively short journey away!

The International Office provides a limited number of dorm rooms for exchange students from overseas and offers support in finding private rooms. The International Office only intermediates the housing process. The offical landlord of the rooms in residence is “Studierendenwerk Mannheim”. Student residence halls are the ideal place to get to know not only German students but also fellow students from all over the world. For more information on housing, visit this page.
