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

During my studies, I already had the opportunity to experience the excellent education and research at the University of Mannheim. My work as research assistant allowed me to take a look at the tasks of PhD students, which really inspired me to pursuit an academic career. The CDSB program allows me to deepen my methodical skills and to gain solid theoretical knowledge, which is therefore an excellent enrichment.
