In the fields of Data Science, Business Informatics and Mathematics in Business and Economics, our school offers a wide range of courses taught in English. You can thus complete an exchange program at the University of Mannheim without prior German language skills. Good to know: undergraduate students are allowed to take graduate’s level courses at the School of Business Informatics and Mathematics. Partially, there are no requirements for participation in a Master’s course.
If you're looking for extensive course details, prerequisites, workload etc. please have a look at our module catalogs.Access here: Academics --> Organizing your Studies -- > Select your Study degree --> Module Catalog.
You may not only take courses at our school, but also courses offered by other schools. These are called university-wide electives. If you would like to take courses that are offered outside our school, please select them from courses offered under university-wide electives. However, please keep in mind that you have to select the majority of courses from those courses offered by our school (50%-rule).
Before coming to Mannheim, you can also ask the exchange coordinator at your home institution whether you will get ECTS credits for the language courses offered at the University of Mannheim.
Information for exchange students participating in the European ERASMUS program: I am your contact person in case you need a signature of the “responsible person in the receiving institution” on your Learning Agreement.
