  • Special features regarding research activities
    Research at the Mannheim Department of Economics is traditionally characterised by its wide subject spectrum and by the connection between theoretical modelling, institution-oriented analysis and empirical application relevance. Due to the large number of chairs, the close cooperation with university (e.g. SFBs) and non-university research institutions (e.g. ZEW in Mannheim) as well as the large number of third-party funded projects, there are extraordinarily diverse opportunities for students to participate early on in the research.
  • Support for founders
    The University of Mannheim offers a wide range and excellent development opportunities for founders of all disciplines. In courses, students can test business models and develop their entrepreneurial spirit. Important theoretical foundations and tools for setting up a company are also taught here. Dedicated student initiatives invite you to exchange ideas and network. The Mannheim Centre for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (MCEI) offers so-called "accelerator teaching formats" that accelerate and support start-ups during your studies.
  • Other special features
    The Faculty of Economics has a wide range of options for individual specialisations in the course. By collaborating with the Universität Heidelberg, optional courses can also be taken there too. the Faculty is distinguished by a very active departmental student organisation (representation of student interests) and a high level of interaction between students and teaching staff. Outstanding graduates of the Bachelor's degree can be included directly in the department's Doctoral program. Master's students can switch to the Doctoral program via the Research Track.
