The material and tools I learned during the program serve as an anchor to which I can relate in my daily work, and have helped me become a well-rounded professional.
But most importantly, I have developed personally and, thanks to our diverse class, learned how to work with colleagues from many different cultures.” After working as an engineer for three years, I wanted to take on more responsibility and understand more about business and how companies operate in general.
MBS also has a broad network of innovative and established companies, and the program includes the opportunity to be exposed to and work for these companies for the final Business Master Project.
The Mannheim Full-Time MBA gave me the opportunity to work with people from different backgrounds, nationalities and styles, which not only allowed me to grow from the international experience, but also to learn from the different management styles.
To achieve a change in industry and role, I saw the MBA as the best platform to achieve my goals within a very short period of time.
I was lucky enough to change my career completely, as I landed in a post-MBA leadership program that specifically recruited from Mannheim Business School.

Before joining MBS, I thought I had international experience, having worked in an international and multicultural company… Working in another country with 23 nationalities, diverse group assignments, and a broad spectrum of personalities every day obliges you to jump out of your comfort zone and develop the empathy and the understanding you need to communicate better and to build strong working relationships with others.
