In addition to business theory, foreign languages are also a central part of our curricula. Languages open the doors to foreign cultures, promote tolerance and looking beyond your own studies. They are the first step of your international career ladder.
For this reason, we already offer a large number of English lectures and courses in our Bachelor and Master degree programs. In the Mannheim Master in Management program you can e.g. apply for the “English Track”. This also makes our degree programs attractive for the high number of international students coming to Mannheim every semester.
During the first semester of the Bachelor's degree program Business Administration, you choose one of the following foreign languages and learn or improve it for two semesters in the course “Foreign language skills”:
Depending on the prior knowledge, the language courses are taught at beginner's or advanced level. The existing knowledge is tested with a placement test. The language courses are an excellent opportunity for you to prepare for the integrated semester abroad in the fifth semester, since the course “Foreign language skills” is offered in the second and third semester.
(* Prior knowledge required; 1: offered by the English Department, 2: offered by the Romance Department of the University of Mannheim)
In the Mannheim Master in Management you have the opportunity to learn another foreign language. The elective MMM offers you classes or lectures of the School of Humanities and if you are interested, you can also attend linguistic or literary courses.
The University of Mannheim offers many language, as well as country and culture courses for exchange students. Visit our winter or summer academy before the beginning of the lecture period and learn German as part of an intensive language course. You can also choose from our large range of German courses, which are held during the semester (no ECTS).
