UAMS: unique amongst Germany’s Universities

Founded in 2011, in Mannheim, Germany, the University of Applied Management Studies is a private Management School, fully accredited by the state of Baden-Württemberg. We offer a range of subsidised Bachelor degree programmes and a wide range of management staff development courses for public and private sector organisations, including executive Master’s programmes. Our majority shareholder, the non-profit “International Bund” has, for many years, played an active role in developing the German education market and guarantees our financial solidity.

A form of Study with Win-Win Perspectives

The Bachelor degree programmes at UAMS are based on a unique combination of classical, full time study and the successful German “cooperative education” model – “Subsidised Management Degrees”. The content of our degree courses was developed in cooperation with companies, both household names, and innovative medium-size companies, to ensure that the needs of the labour market are fully met.

Due to a special financing model, made possible by support from our partner companies and the state of Baden-Württemberg, there is a win-win situation for all parties. During their studies, the students get to know a variety of potential employers and partner companies get to know a variety of potential future employees.

How the right mix guarantees Quality!

We set high standards in teaching and research which, paired with the support from partner companies, guarantees a first class academic education with an excellent learning environment.

  • Maximum course size is 30 students
  • Personal supervision – professor to student ratio less than 1 to 40
  • Professional and financial support from our partner companies
  • Real world relevance through input from partner companies
  • Targeted matching of students with future employers


When selecting our students, we look for applicants whose qualifications are a good match for the selected course requirements. This leads to a low drop-out rate. In addition we are keen to encourage equal opportunities and social diversity. Our application process helps us to optimise the balance between personal traits and competences on the one hand, and the requirements of the programmes on the other hand. The combination of an ideal learning environment and the practical experience during the internship, develops individual potential and leads to effective and efficient studying.


We only cooperate with high class companies, well known for their product and service quality. Corporate Social Responsibility is axiomatic for these companies. Long term market success depends on continually looking after the needs of individual employees and taking care with natural resources.
