Forbes publishes an article about Joachim Lutz, Dean of Business Administration, and his goals for the faculty. The article also talks about the faculty's special programs and Mannheim as a city of inventions.

Joachim Lutz is himself an alumnus of the University of Mannheim and graduated in Business Administration in 1984. He then worked in business for 37 years, including at Deutsche Bank, Südzucker and as CFO and later CEO at CropEnergies AG. In his role as Dean, he can apply his years of experience and look at what the job market has in store for students and how the university's programs can meet students' needs. Dean Lutz emphasizes the importance of taking an interdisciplinary approach to problems and networking with experts from different fields. The business studies program in Mannheim offers students numerous opportunities to do this, for example through the new honors program and the gap year program. The particularly interdisciplinary field of sustainable business is also promoted in Mannheim, for example by the Mannheim Institute for Sustainable Energy Studies (MISES).

Mannheim's location close to the center of Europe and its relevance for the entire region make it an attractive city for both national and international students looking to enter the world of business.
