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. 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 programs 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.
