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.

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.
