Stable at a high level - this is how around 450 Mainz companies assessed Mainz as a business location in autumn 2020. And rightly so, because Mainz is a prospering business centre in the middle of the economically strong Rhine-Main region and as such offers the best conditions for students to find a part-time job in Mainz or to make a career after their studies.
