Mein Jahr in Mannheim war mehr als ein Studium, es war eine Lebenserfahrung.
Rebeccah Dawson (Carrboro)
The University of Mannheim is one of the most prestigious and recognized school in Business in Germany. This is my main reason to study my exchange program here. It represents to me an excellent opportunity to develop my skills and knowledge to establish professional and international relations in order to have future business between Germany and Mexico.
Also, Germany offers to me a high level of research and studies guided to practice that provide me the tools to identify and compare opportunities of business, in order to develop high value models that help the current society.
As personal objectives, I was looking for a university that provides me more specialized courses. This kind of courses also can help me to improve my engineering profile adding the business value. The University of Mannheim with all its courses and programs give the students the opportunity to be prepared to the real world based in its case study practice and also its lectures provided by high quality and prepared professor.
I scheduled my arriving to Mannheim one week before in order to have all my documents, payments, visa, etc., done and also have time to attend to the welcome conferences that the University organized to the exchange students, in which it is provided a very useful information about your accommodation, transportation, classes, student programs, the city and more.
My work schema is detailed in the graphic below. It considers all conferences, sessions, case discussions, presentations and business simulators that I could take during this semester. This study program is balanced in different topics in order to show a knowledge development during my weeks in Mannheim and also the distribution of workload of the business school.
As results at the end of my semester I look for:
At the end of my semester I feel very proud of have had the opportunity to come to this wonderful University that really take care of its students and complement all your formation with practice and student programs with high value; giving the tools to develop business around the world.
