VISION
AND MISSION

FROM THE FOUNDERS

AKB Business Champions should become the undisputed Champions League of Business Schools. As the Champions League stadium, the AKB Business Champions should be an arena to foster constructive competition and at the same time all unite under a shared passion.  


Located in the heart of the German and the European economy, the city of Mannheim is home to the prestigious University of Mannheim. Often referred to as the “Harvard of Germany”, the University of Mannheim has a proven track record of over 100 years of offering world-class education in business, economics, and social sciences. With founding AKB Business Champions, our intention was no less than to remain true to this legacy and celebrate Mannheim as the meeting point of business leaders of today and tomorrow from all across the continent. Through the annual event, we aim to build bridges within and between the academic and professional worlds in Europe. The exchange between students, professionals and academic excellences should generate new insights and establish long-lasting ties among the attendants.
