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

During my time in Mannheim studying the Mannheim Masters in Business Research, I already completed the first year of the GESS Program as part of my studies. This provided fantastic insights into the program and the teaching staff. After having experienced the GESS environment, it was an easy choice to continue my post-graduate studies here in Mannheim.
