uc[M_] := (1/M) Sum[
a[n] * b[m] Exp[I (n * k - m * k + k) 2 *Pi/M ], {n, 0, M - 1}, {m, 0,
M - 1}, {k, 0, M - 1}] ;
If you have lots of time to wait, you can use FullSimplify
FullSimplify[uc[5]]
a[4]*b[0] + a[0]*b[1] + a[1]*b[2] + a[2]*b[3] + a[3]*b[4]
FullSimplify[uc[7]]
a[6]*b[0] + a[0]*b[1] + a[1]*b[2] + a[2]*b[3] + a[3]*b[4] +
a[4]*b[5] + a[5]*b[6]
Note that your expression for the simplified result should read:
a[M - 1] b[0] + a[0] b[1] + a[1] b[2] + ...+a[M - 2] b[M - 1]
