Why I chose the University of Mannheim and in particular the GESS

I chose the University of Mannheim because of its outstanding international reputation and the excellent possibility to discuss academic work with world class researchers in a highly professional environment. Furthermore the structured program at GESS with normative, analytical, empirical and methodological courses as well as practical writing seminars provides me with an excellent foundation for my future career.
