7-10K Euro MBA in Europe, traveling with family


Leyla

Dear Friends,

I will highly appreciate your support on below query, and advice me which university would suit my wants & needs:

1. I am looking for a small business school/univ/college somewhere in Europe which provided 10 - 12 month MBA program with a max cost of 7 - 10K Euro.

2. It does not have to be in top 100 universities

3. as i will be traveling with my family member, it should be something suitable so a) he can get a some kind of language/or specification courses at this univ b) from the part of housing, we need not expensive apartment close to university

If anyone ever had such sort of experience, or can advice a good tool to search? (not google, or yahoo) Highly appreciate your advice!

That's a lot of work to ask someone else to do for you; especially given you're considering the whole of Europe, and don't sound too selective about the school.

First off, narrow things down a bit. The best way to do that is to use the region/country tabs at the top of the page on here to give you an idea of which schools meet your criteria and where they are. The only way you can come to a decision on which school is for you is by critically assessing their programme, and all the other stuff you mention, for yourself. You might also want to bear in mind that although housing located a substantial distance from the city centre - where a large proportion of schools are based - is considerably cheaper, you'll spend a hell of a lot of time and money going to and fro. For example, in London, don't expect to travel from Zone 2 (ie. the part of the city closest to the very centre) to the centre in under an hour. Even more if you take the bus. Sometimes it can make more economic sense, and have less of an impact on your quality of life, to pay that little extra rent.

Hi Leyla,

Have you ever had a look at the German Fachhochschulen (Reutlingen, Furtwangen)? They do not offer an international top standard and they will never appear in the rankings, but they offer a solid MBA degree at an reasonable price.

Best,
JL

If you are interested in Furtwangen, or any other German programme, you can find a lot of discussion on it and other Fachhochschulen by searching the discussion board on here. There are also some interviews with the heads of German MBA programmes on the blog section which might be of use.

Hi Leyla,

I have never been there myself, but if you want to get a clue of the living costs there you can use this to calculate it(no idea how true it is, thought):

http://www.easyexpat.com/en/mod/cost.htm

or just check these website out:

http://www.aboutmilan.com/cost-of-living-in-milan.html

and this:

http://www.study-in-italy.it/living/living-costs.html

i think Italy is, in general, not really considerd a cheap place to be in.

Good luck,

D.

I am currently in Germany and also considering an MBA from a fachhochschule.

Germany has a dual system of universities on one side and fachhochschulen (university of applied science; some call themselves "hochschulen" as well) on the other.

Generally, the quality of education seems to be better at universities than at fachhochschulen. Only universities are allowed to award the highest academic degrees. Eg if you want to become an attorney, you need get a law degree from a university.

You can find out about whether a school is a university by looking at the name. Only university are allowed to call themselves Universität (or university without the extension "applied science").

In business education you also have some good schools, which are neither universities, nor fachhochschulen, but private business schools (the vast majority of German universities and fachhochschulen are public/state schools).

I'm a bit surprised about pycho's comment about the low quality of students and profs at fachhochulen. Speaking from what I read, fachhochschulen are more focused on practical knowledge than universities, but still serious providers of higher education. You cannot compare them to some private schools which only try to rip off their students. To become a professor at a fachhochule you usually need a strong educational background.

However, it doesn't seem very common that fachhochschulen offer MBA programs for international students, so I don't know whether the level of English in those programs is really high.

I am eager to hear more about what experiences other MBA students have made at fachhochschulen.

Low quality is not mean prof. don't know anything of their field and students has low english quality but temperament. Actually every prof. is good at their field and even they have their own company but it doesn't mean they are good at teaching and will give you sth. If so, i prefer to choose university than Hochschule. I had education experience b/w U.S. and Germany. I prefer U.S. and the university required GMAT.
