University of Mannheim Business School Faculty Profile

Welcome Dear reader, The Business School of the University of Mannheim represents one of the largest and most reputed institutions of its kind in Europe. For more than one hundred years, we are dedicated to research and teaching. Founded in 1907, our organization has become a full provider by offering programs for Bachelor, Master and Ph.D. as well as for MBA and EMBA in management education. Our School has committed itself to fulfill the highest requirements of international standards. Therefore, we put great effort into quality control, most importantly by undergoing international accreditation assessment and Assurance of Learning (AoL) on a regular basis.

We are proud to be accredited by AACSB, AMBA and EFMD (EQUIS). Nevertheless, all members of our School strive for continuous improvement.

Achieving our goal relies on the brain and heart of our institution – the faculty. Composed of more than 50 highly motivated full and assistant professors, their productiveness is widely demons- trated by more than 500 journal publications in the last five years. Apart from that, the faculty has different expertise that goes bey- ond research excellence. The following pages provide an outline of their competences – including their fields of research, careers, publications and awards.
