I am a student since August 2018 at the University of Mannheim in the "Master in Management". However, nothing is going well.
I am very disappointed regarding the program. I had the feeling that I am learning absolutely besides learning how to finish the exam on time since we do have so little time.
The classes are not that much various as I expected and the atmosphere can be resumed by overly exagerrated "elitist attitude".
So I am wondering how actually the University can be within the TOP 20 Management program? In addition, I really want to leave the program but since it is supposed to be among the best university, I am overthinking on it.
Anyone has been in this situation?
Vielen Dank in voraus !
First, the examinations in Germany are quite different than in the rest of the EU and US. Usually about 90% of the examinations are written and under high time pressure - thus the given tasks are usually not complex - something like "write an essay about sth." would never appear in an exam.
So time pressure in exams: in every master program (at a state university).
If you want to pursue a MGMT Master then Mannheim truly ist your best choice. If you want to specialize in Marketing also consider Münster, for Finance also consider Frankfurt State and Frankfurt FS (private), for Accounting consider Münster or Bochum.
The Top 20 of whatsoever should not have a major input in your choice. The best Universities in Germany are state schools - and generally don't give a f*** about rankings. There are great schools in Germany that just don't show in international rankings. That elitist flair that surrounds Mannheim is somehow justified - for their bachelor program. The masters still great - but there are better options depending on your interests.
