European Management Track (EMT)

Be a part of a successful, sustainable future Europe!

The University of Mannheim Business School has joined forces with three other leading European business schools – Copenhagen Business School, ESSEC Paris and IE University Madrid – to establish the EMT program and offer MMM students a unique opportunity to gather intercultural experience, expertise in sought-after fields of business administration and a strong European profile. EMT students of all four schools will get to know each other during an introductory course in Brussels and then spend a semester abroad at one of the EMT partner schools. Each of the partners has created a specific track to prepare students for leading future roles, thus making valuable contributions to Europe’s future.

  • Program structure and timeline

    MMM students who have been selected for the EMT program will take part in a three to four day introductory course in Brussels in late August/early September 2022, along with the entire cohort of EMT students from all four partner schools. The course fee will be paid for by the EMT network, students will only have to pay for their travel and accomodation. After getting to know each other and learning more about European institutions and politics, each student will spend the fall semester 2022 at their EMT respective partner school, where they will study the EMT specialization on offer (2-3 courses) and potentially complete further coursework. After the semester, an informal get-together will form the capstone for the EMT program and provide an opportunity to discuss and reflect experiences and insights.

  • How to apply

    MMM students in their first semester can apply for an EMT spot in the fall semester 2022. The process will be the same as for the regular semester abroad, the deadline is 31 October 2021. Further details will be provided shortly in the application instructions 2021.

  • Student profile

    EMT applicants need to be in their first semester of the MMM program. They should be highly motivated, have a good to very good academic track record and a strong interest in Europe. They should also be able to demonstrate that they have assumed responsibilities and are willing to do so in the future through voluntary cultural, social or other commitment.

  • Benefits of the EMT program

    All EMT partner schools are among the top institutions in Europe, all are triple accredited, strong in research and highly international in their outlook. The EMT specializations are a great opportunity to gain expertise in sought-after fields of business administration and to benefit from your host institution's academic strengths. The common introduction course in Brussels will provide you with deep insights into the workings of the EU and Europe, while studying together with students from a wide range of nationalities and backgrounds will enhance your intercultural competence. And since you will not only get to know students at your host institution, but everyone across the EMT cohort, you will build an even larger of network of young talents who are enthusiastic about Europe. Once you've successfully concluded the program, you will receive the EMT certificate for your host school and specialization. And finally, EMT will take you to highly attractive European cities.
