Mannheim Master in Management Double Degree Program

Two international degrees in one program

Our seven international Mannheim Master in Management (MMM) double degree programs involve spending half of your time studying at the University of Mannheim, and the other half at one of our renowned partner universities abroad. You will obtain two degrees: the Master in Management, M.Sc., awarded by the University of Mannheim and a second internationally recognized degree awarded by the respective partner university.


The double degree program was an incredibly fun, intense, and adventurous time that I would never want to miss. I not only had the chance to experience two different study programs and live in two very different countries, but also made very good friends, literally from all around the globe. I am very grateful for this experience. For all those thinking of participating in such a program I have only one word of advice: Apply!

The double degree program of the University of Mannheim and the NHH is a unique opportunity for me to specialize in the field of Energy, Natural Resources and the Environment at the NHH in addition to the Mannheim Master in Management. The year abroad in Norway is an exciting and instructive experience and enables me to build an international network.

Participating in the University of Mannheim’s double degree program together with Copenhagen Business School was a unique opportunity to gain international exposure extending far beyond a regular exchange semester and simultaneously earn master’s degrees from two of Europe’s most distinguished business schools. The Master of Information Systems at CBS is very complementary to the University of Mannheim’s Master in Management and offers interesting new perspectives on the subject, great specialization opportunities and plenty of extracurricular activities. I can recommend the double degree track to any student interested in IT management and gaining international experience.

What I like most about the double degree program with ESSEC Business School is that we have the opportunity to spend a whole year abroad. We can become fully involved in the ESSEC community, for instance through working with associations or chairs, which makes the experience truly international.
