Get to know different teaching styles while studying abroad as an exchange student or freemover during the fifth semester. A longer stay abroad will not only help you to gain unforgettable memories and intercultural experiences, but will also advance your academic and personal development. Even though it might involve a prolongation of your studies - it's worth it.
I spent my semester abroad in Budapest, the capital of Hungary. The University of Mannheim has a lot of partner universities in many countries around the world and I'd really like to encourage you to take advantage of this great opportunity. A semester abroad is not mandatory in the undergraduate program “Economic and Business Education” but it entails a lot of benefits such as establishing new contacts with people from different countries, becoming more independent, getting to know new people and the culture of your host country and having the chance to study in an international atmosphere.
In my study program Economic and Business Education, a semester abroad is not mandatory. Nevertheless, it was important to me to gain the experience of studying in a foreign country and I would undoubtedly recommend it to anyone. I spent my exchange semester in Saint Petersburg, where I was confronted with a completely different culture. This gave me a whole new perspective which I might never have considered if I had not encountered so many diverse places and people.
