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

Given its impeccable reputation for first-class education and research as well as its global collaboration network, the University of Mannheim attracts excellent scholars from around the world and presents a stimulating research environment. At the GESS, experts in their respective fields complement each other to provide a comprehensive set of methodological competences. Pursuing the CDSB doctoral program in Management hence constitutes a unique opportunity to acquire a strong foundation for successfully conducting my own research projects.
