Studying and Working in Mannheim

Mannheim has two major universities. The most prestigious is the University of Mannheim, which has been labeled the "Harvard of Germany" due to its business and economics stature. 20% of students at the university are international, reflecting its outward-looking nature, and its ranking is close to the global top 50 for social sciences.

Hochschule Mannheim is the other major university in the city, and focuses on informatics, mathematics, biotech research and other advanced, vocational disciplines. The two institutions complement each other, feeding a stream of graduates into the region's industrial economy.

Local companies range from pharma giant Hoffmann-la-Roche to tractor-maker John Deere, and engineering corporations like Siemens and Bombardier. So the career prospects for Mannheim students are always very positive, no matter which university students choose.
