The lecture period of the fall/winter semester 2023 starts on 4 September.

The week before (starting from 28 August) our introductory events will take place. Even if you are not yet enrolled, you can already participate in the introductory events.

Welcome Week

Mannheim Master in Management

To ensure that you are prepared for your studies, we would like to cordially invite you to our introductory week, which will take place in the week before lectures begin (28 August to 3 September 2023). This will start with the official MMM welcome event of the Business School in the auditorium of the castle on 28 August 2023 in the afternoon followed by a champagne reception. At the welcome event, you will also receive information on how to put together your study plan, how to register for and deregister from exams, and what to know about the campus. But be sure to also stop by the social events to make your first contacts with fellow students.

So that you don't lose the overview, we will gradually announce all dates here. Please check this page regularly for more information.
