Personal recommendation
Big uni, well located in the city (check out the Englisher Garten next to it). Be autonomous, don't expect a great help from teachers or administration. I mean they're nice but not really available for students...

3.9/5
Overall
Personal recommendation
Nightlife is excellent. The university itself is probably a bit too big and impersonnel and I found it quite hard to get a lot out of lectures. There are probably too many English/Irish/American students there (i.e. I spent a lot of my time with them as it was hard to meet other German students and my German suffered as a result).

4.0/5
Overall
For such a discounted education compared to the US, I would recommend to anyone wanting to get a masters, to get it in Germany. Although you will have to do much more self-learning, they provide you with everything you need as long as you have the work ethic to perform at the necessary level.

LMU has been a wonderful university with almost as many student incentives/opportunities as any university back home.

4.0/5
Overall
Personal recommendation
I think it is a good university for economics, I think it is the second one in Germany, but students try hard, very hard, and sometimes it is difficult to pass the exams, they don't make many concessions with erasmus students.
