Whether it's about applying, funding opportunities, course choice or credit transfer – if you plan on studying abroad, you will have plenty of questions. The university's Central International Office and the departmental exchange coordinators of the Business School are happy to help. An outline of the most important information and to-dos will shortly be available on our e-learning platform ILIAS.

Application

Apply during your first semester in Mannheim for an exchange placement in your 3rd or 4th semester. You can also consider applying directly to a foreign university as a “freemover” – this means organizing the stay yourself, but we are happy to provide advice.

Credit Transfer

Discuss your learning agreements with the chairs in Mannheim before you leave and submit them to the Examination Committee after your return. You can find details on the transfer process, previously recognized courses and the grade transfer on our e-learning platform ILIAS.
