To be able to plan and manage examinations in the best possible way, it is imperative that you register for examinations in due time. The university relies on your cooperation, so please make sure you observe the relevant deadlines.
The University of Mannheim uses the electronic system Portal² for exam registration and management. You can log on to this system at any time with your user ID and password to view your student account and to obtain information on examinations you registered for and grades you achieved.
With regard to examinations offered by the Business School as part of the Mannheim Master in Management, the regulations on these examinations issued by Student Services apply. Students may withdraw from all other exams they registered for in Portal² up to one week before the examination date. If there is no examination date stated in Portal² or the type of examination is not a written exam, as a rule, the possibility of withdrawal will end on a date determined by Student Services.
Your grades are entered into the electronic campus management system (Portal²) and can be viewed there at any time. You can create an unofficial transcript of records at any time that you can print out at home and that indicates all your grades. Apart from that, you may request an official transcript of records from Student Services (please contact the office responsible for your program).
Coursework and examinations as well as periods of study completed in degree courses at official or officially recognized higher education institutions in Germany or abroad as well as at “Berufsakademien” (public universities of cooperative education) of the Federal Republic of Germany are recognized provided there is no significant difference between the competences obtained and those to be substituted.
The recognition is indicated in the degree certificate and in the transcript of records. In case the student takes part in an examination at the University of Mannheim even though he or she already obtained the respective qualification elsewhere, he or she automatically waives the right to have the previous qualification recognized.
The examination committee decides on the recognition upon request. Request forms and further information on the request itself as well as the documents to be enclosed with it can be found at the bottom of this section. It is the student's responsibility to provide the examination committee with the necessary documents for the recognition of coursework and examinations.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact the examination committee’s office.
