I earned my bachelor’s degree from the University of Mannheim and knew right away that I wanted to stay for the master’s program. The master’s program in Competition Law and Regulation combines law with economics, which enables me to analyze economic affairs from two different angles. Since the individual courses are made up of small groups, students can benefit from excellent support, too.

“To tackle the manifold tasks in a regulated company, we need legal practitioners who are able to think outside the box and who not only have excellent legal expertise, but also understand economic and technical procedures and how they are connected. The master’s program of the University of Mannheim prepares students for these challenges in the best way possible.

I chose the master's program in Competition Law and Regulation due to its ideal combination of law and economics. This enables me to gain insights into important sections of our economy which go beyond the legal sphere. With its elective courses “Digital Economy” and “Energy”, the University of Mannheim is leading the way into the future, which is why decided to come here for my studies.

The master’s program in Competition Law and Regulation at the University of Mannheim not only focuses on questions of law, but also explores economic processes in depth. If you are interested in law, economics, and business administration, this program is the perfect choice for you. Personally I can say that all professors and teachers are committed to their courses and are very keen to pass on as much knowledge as possible to their students. As the number of students enrolled in the program is small, you can study efficiently and at your own pace while maintaining a high level – a huge advantage in my opinion. So far, companies have always reacted very positively when I mentioned this program, so I expect to have excellent career prospects after I graduate.
