Our projects

The first university-based and student-led M&A consultancy in the DACH region

AK Advisory is Dach region ‘s first university-based student initiative aimed at providing first-year students with real M&A experience through our partner M&A boutiques (first student-led M&A consultancy). In collaboration with our partner M&A boutiques, we offer ambitious students the opportunity to work on live and real M&A deals during their first year at the University of Mannheim. This allows you to gain hands-on experience in investment banking. 

A selected team of 10-15 students will undergo a training program within the M&A resort in their first semester, which includes an introduction to M&A and exclusive workshops with our partner M&A boutiques, tailored for AK Advisory. This program will prepare you for project work in the second semester.

The Invest team focuses on learning fundamental valuation and research methods for public market investments.

In collaboration with leading Asset Managers, we will introduce the members of the Arbeitskreis Börse to fundamental research and valuation methods and give students the opportunitiy to gain deep insights into the work of a Portfolio Manager. 

After learning important foundations in a training program, and exclusive workshops with our partners, the Team will have the opportunity to actively manage the Investment Fund of AK Investment Management. Our focus explicitly lies on transferring knowledge, regarding different asset classes, investment strategies, and valuation methods, as well as giving our members the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in Portfolio Management.

Coming together to shape the next generation of female success

Founded in 2023 as the first female empowerment program at the University of Mannheim, “Women in Business” aims to create a platform for female students to connect with female professionals from all industries. Through our speaker events “Women Talk Business”, our female mentorship program, and our cross-industry Speaker Day, being hosted in April 2024 for the first time, Women in Business brings together female students and creates a unique space for exchange, female empowerment, and success. 

We are always looking for new challenges to take on and put the empowerment of female students as the thing closest to our hearts. If you would like to support us, whether as a mentor, a partner, or a speaker, please do not hesitate to reach out and share your thoughts with us. 

Let’s shape the next generation of female success together!
