Study Economic and Business Education at one of the top business schools in Germany. You have various opportunities to give your studies your own profile. Besides gaining deep knowledge in business education and business administration, you will develop your social competences and academic working skills by team-oriented forms of learning and working as well as individually aimed feedback.
The Master in Economic and Business Education prepares you for a teaching activity at a career-oriented school or a business high school. But is also an ideal base if you want to work in a company, for example in the human resources sector.
Influenced by my commercial training and pedagogical background, I enjoy the integration of pedagogics into an economic context which is found in Economic and Business Education. Due to my studies, I recognize the meaning of economic interdependencies. Therefore, I now view basic economic education as an important goal for adolescents and young adults. Internships offer a good view over the broad career prospects after your studies. Furthermore, especially during the master’s studies, studying in small groups is very pleasant.
Mannheim as a place to study is in many ways an attractive city. The campus is not far from the city center, the individual buildings are not far away from each other and within walking distance. You are always integrated into the city. Because of its size – manageable but not too small – Mannheim is an absolute student city. Last but not least, studying in a Baroque palace is without a doubt unparalleled. As a variation to the stressful university life, the relaxed nightlife in Mannheim has a lot to offer. Schneckenhof parties on the university premises every Thursday, numerous clubs in the city center and last but not least the cozy bars in the nightlife district Jungbusch, which attracts students not only for clubbing, but in recent years also for living. For me, Mannheim is a multifaceted and vibrant city – for residing and living, but of course and most importantly also for studying.
My Master’s thesis enabled me to start my career in the Human Resources department of the Volvo Group in 2014. Today, I am responsible of supporting our managers of the Volvo Group Trucks branch in Southern Germany and for advising our sales departments all over Germany on HR topics. My knowledge of both psychology and education as well as my specialization in Human Resources, a subfield of business administration, continue to be very valuable in my daily work. The methodological and social skills I gained during my studies were key to my professional career.
