Mein Jahr in Mannheim war mehr als ein Studium, es war eine Lebenserfahrung.
Rebeccah Dawson (Carrboro)
The main reason to choose The University of Mannheim as my exchange program is that it is one of the most important Universities in Germany. It is awarded with the National "Excellence Initiative" by the Mannheim Graduate School of Economic and Social Sciences.
The Business School of the University offers a wide range of study programs. In my exchange program I selected the following subjects:
All of them are related to my interest in Business & Leadership. In addition the University is one of the most beautiful universities. I enjoyed the palace rooms, libraries, cafeterias and garden spaces.
Studying in Germany was an enriching experience in many aspects. I started to learn the German Language; I attended interesting and international classes in which I could interact with German people and also people from other countries like China, France, Taiwan, etc.
I could appreciate some German cultural values like punctuality, accountability, and organization.
The Welcome Center is a great space to mix cultural, social and academic activities in a very nice environment. The location is so convenient, that you can choose between study at home or study at any hour at the university. The administration staff always is caring about your needs and concerns, and also they share with you the most important German Traditions (Food, Festivals, and Christmas Party)
These 4 months have been a wonderful experience in terms not only of learning but also in terms of cultural experiences
I am really grateful with Welcome Center and Ekkehard Foundation for give me the opportunity of being a scholarship holder. It is an honor to be part of a great group that cares of academic, cultural and social values.
