Mannheim Business School has launched a new program designed to support women entering the workforce and reach leadership positions.  

The Female Leadership Accelerator program lasts for six-months and aims to help all women step foot into the German labor market.  

The program modules provide insight on leadership strategies, digital and sustainable transformation, value-based management, financial strategy and customer orientation.  

“The structure of the classroom modules of four Fridays and Saturdays over a period of six months means there are only four working days for the course, which is convenient for managers with busy schedules, and even mothers with small children are not faced with insurmountable childcare challenges,” said Doctor Jens Wüstemann, president of Mannheim Business School. 

Participants can receive tailored support to help their personal development journey through one-on-one career and individual leadership coaching.  

They will also have a chance to develop their personal networks through opportunities to work closely with other members of the cohort. For example, during two-day classroom modules where participants share accommodation and have opportunities to network.  

Only 16% of SMEs in Germany are led by women and 28% of senior management roles are held by women across the country. The business school aims to increase the leadership capabilities and opportunities for women in Germany through the program.
