Univ. of Mannheim - Baden-Wuerttemberg Exchange
"The University of Mannheim is the Harvard of Germany." This headline from Die Zeit shows that Germany's distinguished weekly newspaper clearly believes that the University of Mannheim is a force to be reckoned with on the academic circuit, even though, according to the Dean of Mannheim University, this statement might be slightly exaggerated: "Obviously, we are very pleased to receive such lavish praise," admits Rector Hans-Wolfgang Arndt, "but Mannheim as the German Harvard - however flattering that may be, I don't think we have achieved the same level of recognition yet that Harvard has, although this is what we are striving for and hope to achieve within the next few years."
The reputation on which the University of Mannheim thrives has been built on its strong Business Administration, Economics and Social Sciences programs. All the other schools / departments within the University - Law, the Humanities, Computer Science - are woven into these disciplines in a unique way which has broken new ground in Germany. The University is recognized as one of the leading academic institutions in Germany and Europe for Business Administration, Economics and Social Sciences. This is reflected by a large number of accreditations, evaluations, rankings and other distinctions. The Mannheim Business School was the first German institution to be accredited by the AACSB and EQUIS. These successes are based on a continuous quality assurance effort in research, teaching and administration.
