    I heard it is not really difficult since the best undergradstudents in Germany usually choose to go abroad for their masters degree so competition is not so fierce.

    About BA vs Econ in Mannheim:
    Yes, it is quite easy to enroll in Econ here. I know people who got in with an Abitur of 2,7 so it is way easier than BA, partly because those kids who think "I dont know what to do with my 1,1 Abitur so I wanna become a Millionaire doing IB!" usually choose to study BA (thank God for it!).

    But it doesnt mean at all that it is easier doing Econ. Of the initial 240 students in Econ only 140-150 will graduate so getting in does not guarantee you a degree and those lacking the required skills will be kicked out quickly. It is the same in Zürich and Bonn, which are with Mannheim the top 3 Econ faculties in the german speaking countries.

    It is true that Zurich hast the top Econ faculty of all German speaking countries.
    But it is not the same as in Mannheim. It is not easier to get into BA than into Econ in Zurich, quite the contrary actually. But they also lose a lot of guys in the first year, that's true again.

    While the reputation of Zürich in Econ is betten than in BA, admission is still easy. They basicly have to admit everyone with swiss nationality (by law), so the first year is an "Assessment Year" to filter out the best students.

    It's the same for Germans with an Abitur: As long as you have taken "normal" subjects in your examinations and passed them (excluding Music, Sports ...) you are in.

    Nevertheless the simply insane high cost of living in Zürich (University recommends atleast 1500 Franken a Month= 1150 €) made me choose Mannheim over Zürich.

    Yep, that's it. I gotta know, I am studying in Zürich right now. The living costs are high indeed, but the biggest position by far is accomodation. If you manage to find a good deal on a flat (like I did) you'll be nowhere near 1'500 CHF a month. Plus Zürich is the one most livable city in the world.
