Mannheim Business School (MBS) is one of Europe's leading institutions for business education. Together with the University of Mannheim and its School of Business Administration, we offer a coherent, strategic framework for lifelong business education and we are leaders in undergraduate, postgraduate, and executive education.
The University of Mannheim was founded in 1907 originally as a municipal college of commerce and these roots are still evident today as it is located in one of Europe's largest baroque castles. The university has a clear focus on business administration, economics and the social sciences. It was named the 'best German university according to 600 German HR managers' in 2004 by the business magazine karriere (Handelsblatt publishing group).
The School of Business Administration, which is closely linked with MBS in terms of organization and faculty, is the leading institution in business administration in Germany, according to the rankings of the most important German news and business magazines. The faculty is particularly known for their outstanding research and high teaching standards. In addition,
Mannheim is the only German institution to be accredited by both AACSB International and EQUIS, the two leading international accreditation organizations.
