MCEI Sneak Peek Spring 2018

We very excited to dive into the spring semester 2018 with you! 


We will be back with our entrepreneurship courses on both, bachelor and master level. Our MAN 632 Advanced Entrepreneurship will continue to provide you with theoretical background and understanding about entrepreneurship and start-ups. If you have a more hands-on attitude you should go for MAN 453 Thinking Beyond Boxes as bachelor or MAN 633 Entrepreneurial Spirit as master student. In these accelerator-style courses we don't sit in lecture halls but want you to push your own start-up or help one of our amazing partners advance theirs. Our offerings are complemented by affiliated lecturers from the ifm Mannheim, bringing you MAN 450, MAN 636 and MAN 770.
