Frankfurt School - MBA opinion


DACHMBA

Dear Forum,

I m in the middle of the process of deciding whether the Frankfurt School MBA would be right for me.
I know that Frankfurt is very well ranked and respected in the German speaking world however their MBA programme is unranked in FT (just the EMBA is ranked) which kind of puts me of.

Do you have any opinion on that?

The FT ranks their full-time MBA 28th in Europe: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/european-business-school-rankings-2020 

Do you have a more specific question?

Thank you - I did not find them in the FT Global MBA rankings so yes, it would be better to say they are ranked but not very highly (yet?).

Do you see a positive development as the business school itself is quite highly regarded?

My goal would be to break into consulting (MBB + Tier2 - Berger, Wyman,...) - do you think FS can place there?

Thanks!

The school was created as the Bankakademie and still places better into banking and consulting into the financial services markets. Take a look at How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571

So to sum it up: If I would target Management Consulting (tier1/tier2) for Financial Services Companies you would think that Frankfurt School of Finance and Management would be able to place me there?

thank you

I don't know anything about you. COnsider booking a call with me if you need a solid evaluation. But I think you can compare basic odds by looking at MSc holders in the target firms in LinkedIn and then segmenting them by school. Use the link I have you, and you can do that yourself. Of course there are many other factors admitted. Language and acculturation are obviously key in nuanced, high-value customer-facing roles like consulting and marketing. If you have not worked in that field in German, a degree taught in German maybe be a better investment.

The school would probably be able to connect you with the kinds of firms you're looking at, but without knowing more about your background and work history it's not clear whether they would want to hire you.

If you don't already have a fluent command of the German language, I'd say the chances of landing a job in Germany - most any post-MBA job - start to decline. Beyond that, this kind of firm will be interested in what specific skills and expertise you bring to the table, beyond what an MBA would provide.

I tend to agree with Duncan - that a German-language degree, preferably in or near the cities where you want to work - is probably a better idea.

German is not my issue - I am fluent/native + have substantial consulting background (although at a lower rated firm) so no big deal here.
