Life is not very cool there, its pretty much a uni for great high school students that do their Bachelor's in Mannheim and then move on to renowned schools abroad. The ones that get in Mannheim for the Master's are often people from bad German schools that are not considered universities. Anyway, there is always a high competition among them (they have to make up for something), so don't expect help from fellow students. Also, my advice, buy yourself a shitload of Ralph Lauren garments, if you don't have them already. They will take you more serious!
Thanks for the advice
should start looking for some imitations
Are you a current MMM student? I don't live in Germany and was going to apply to MMM since Mannheim Business School had a good ranking on FT and is a top German Business school. But now I am seriously reconsidering if I should given your reply. So the life and fellow students are no good. What about the faculty and standard of teaching?
The MMM ist NOT AT ALL held at Mannheim Business School, but at Mannheim University. FT and Mannheim both know that what they write is wrong (another reason not to go there). I am not a student, but I know several students who have completed their Bachelor there and they all left (after talking to current Master students). The standards are very high, you need to study a lot for sure. But its not a good teacher-student relationship usually, they are Professors standing in front talking gor 1.5 hours and then you all go home. Not comparable with Business School expereince.
Plus I am not saying that life in general must be bad in Mannheim, it depends on you. For the Economics students it seems quite fun (they dont have to wear fancy clothes to go out), but for Business students, you better fit the type of person I described above!
NEVERTHELESS: The program is very well accpeted by German firms and academia, so it wont be a loss of time.
