Description

The University of Mannheim is one of Germany’s leading research universities with a particular emphasis on the social and economic sciences. Founded in 1907, Mannheim’s first School of Commerce quickly grew into a thriving higher education institution. 

In 1933, the School was merged with the University of Heidelberg and the institution went through a series of identities before officially designated a university in 1967. 

With the majority of its campus housed in and around the Mannheim Baroque Palace – the largest of its kind in the country – it is frequently described by international students as being the most beautiful university campus in Germany. Consequently, its 12,000 students and 3,000 staff have the luxury of working in an inspiring atmosphere.

Mannheim’s mission is to give students and faculty a blended experience of teaching and research, thereby ensuring its international competitiveness in global higher education. All academic programmes are interwoven with the basics of business administration. 

The university’s profile is further shaped by its excellence in economic and social sciences, with its triple-accredited business school making the university one of the few German and global institutions to have achieved this status. 

Given its impressive academic credentials, Mannheim has educated and employed some of Germany’s leading scholars, including numerous Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Prize winners. Hans-Werner Sinn, president emeritus at Ifo Institute – Leibniz Institute for Economic Research at the University of Munich, and Clemens Fuest, current president of the Ifo Institute, respectively were educated at and taught at Mannheim. 

A very student and civic-focused institution, Mannheim organises the annual Schlossfest, where venues in and outside the Mannheim Palace provide new and current students, and members of the public, with a diverse mix of music, cultural performances, parties, guided tours, academic lectures and lounge areas.

The university offers very interesting courses and allows in the Psychology programme a wide range of possibilities to choose your courses from. The classes are pretty small so it's easier to discuss topics. Every year there is a career fair organized which brings together students and companies and underlines the importance of the University of Mannheim for recruiters. There are also plenty of student organizations which you can volunteer for. It was a great time studying in Mannheim and I have the feeling that it prepared me very well for my future working life.

I attended University of Mannheim as an exchange student in Spring 2019. I had a very positive experience overall. The range of courses is impressive: I liked the practical nature of many courses like Stats in R, Behavioral Economics, Impact Evaluation along with some theoretical ones such as Environmental Financial economics. The campus is nice with early 19th century baroque palace serving as the venue for a lot of classes and a world class library. The city itself doesn’t have much to do except a few nice bars and clubs at night.
