The Mannheim Master in Business Research (MMBR) is a quantitatively-oriented programme with a clear focus on business research. The MMBR is offered completely in English and is open to international students. All students are optimally prepared for an international career, both in the academic and non-academic fields.

The programme is ideal for both:
  • excellent students who would like to prepare for a structured PhD programme at the Center for Doctoral Studies in Business Research (CDSB), which is supported by the Excellence Initiative; and

  • Bachelor's graduates striving for a non-academic career in a quantitative area of business (e.g., investment banking, analysts, market research, logistics, supply chain optimisation, etc.).

The broad variety of courses of the Business School of the University of Mannheim cover a broad spectrum of specialisations. These include:

Accounting, Finance, Information Systems, Management, Marketing, Operations, and Taxation

Course objectives

The MMBR distinguishes itself through a strong and above-average focus on research. The programme offers an ideal preparation for a structured PhD programme as offered by the Center for Doctoral Studies in Business (CDSB). MMBR graduates can shorten the PhD programme offered by the CDSB by one year.

At the same time, the MMBR ideally prepares students for careers in quantitative areas of business (e.g., investment banking, analysts, market research, logistics, and supply chain optimisation).
