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

The business program of the university of Mannheim enjoys an excellent reputation within Germany as well as on an international scale. During my bachelor’s as well as my master’s degree I came to appreciate the teaching methods, the staff and the widespread opportunities that are offered here. I decided to  continue my studies at the GESS to further profit from the variety of courses and the exceptional network the university provides.
