Feedback on ESMT Berlin


Alain



It's still very young, comparitively speaking. It will be a few years, I suspect, before ESMT will appear on international rankings or get accredited by someone like AMBA.


Sounds pretty much like what I just wrote. However, as I said, ESMT already got the AMBA accreditation.

Well..beyond statistics, it seems like the university is also offering full scholarships backed by big companies like Gazprom, Allianz and Deutsche Bank.

So from a careers perspective, you can't go wrong with this b-school.

Hello,
I'm part of the ESMT 2011. Few months ago I was looking for feedback on ESMT and I saw this (old) post...
Now I could give some feedback: It's really great experience.
Faculty is excellent. Organization, campus, berlin, everything is great . A lot of diversity in terms of background and nationality (18 nationality for 38 participants) among participants. It was just what I was looking for.
So I'm really positive about this school.

So if you want more information just reply to my post.

I was a part of the 2011 Full-time MBA. I do not speak a word of German. However, I have been placed in Germany through one of the recruitment events organized by the school involving the founding companies. Without going into the details, I am placed with a global company with a profile that offers a lot of responsibility with huge growth opportunities.

If you go through an MBA program, you are expected to know what you exactly want out of your carrier by the end of program. This is exactly what ESMT through its personlized counselling program helps with. With a cleared and structured thought process, you can then leverage the network presented by the school to find the right opportunities for yourself.

It was a truely international experience for all of us, The class is made up of around 40 students which makes it a very personalized program. You bond really well with all the batch-mates through the various group exercises you are made to go through.

The program is very well structured and the planning of the finest details is in line with the world famous German precision!

Berlin is an amazing place to spend an year. People in general and specially at the school are very warm and friendly.

Having gone through it, I know ESMT has chaned my life for good!

Hi,
it was the ESMT adcom to tell me to stay away from Germany if you don't know german ... and that indians are not finding job there.
I've always talked with people from Whu and they agreed with the fact the german knowledge is a considerable advantage in the job search (even if there are some english positions).
By the way .. everything can turn well..even to come to SDA without knowning a word of italian and finding a job there :-)
I m happy for you

This is really interesting, because what I've been hearing about
Germany is that it's hard to find work in Germany without German knowledge. Can you elaborate a bit on your experience? Did you pick up the language while you were in school? What's the predominant language in the firm you work for now?

It's a great accomplishment to get a job in Germany without German. You and the ESMT should be proud. It says a lot about the way in which the ESMT founders use the school.

I imagine you are a European. Is that right?

Needless to say, it would be most unwise for anyone attending any other school in Germany to expect they can get a serious executive role without speaking German. And one should not underestimate the 'glass ceiling' for non-DACHs people.
