After already completing my Bachelor's in Business Administration here, I returned to Mannheim for the MMM. I think the MMM is unique in its variety and quality nationwide. As a state university, Mannheim is able to compete with private business schools worldwide. The value for money is perfect!

At the MMM I like the quality and variety of the lectures as well as the proximity to renowned companies. In addition, Mannheim is the perfect city to live due to its size, where everything is available and at the same time quickly reachable. The interaction between the students is excellent and I would choose the MMM at any time.

The MMM convinced me in particular through its freedom of choice. Every student can personalize his or her curriculum. I have been concentrating on Accounting and Operations Management so far and I am very happy with it.
