German MBAs


Anybody can give some info regarding furtwangen MBA?


Furtwangen is e really good school. i did my undergrad there and i can only recommend the school. the faculty of business is located in villingen-schwenningen which is a relativley calm city with a total poulation of 80.000. the city itself is not really that great but it is not far from austria, switzerland, lake constance, stuttgart and other nice places. the professors were top-class business leaders before they joined the faculty of business e.g. a former member of the board at henkel, vice-president of deutsche bank, global head of recriuting at SAP and so on... the living cost in villingen schwenningen are low and the program fees are ridiculous, especially if you consider the high quality of the program.

I am finishing up my MBA in Germany now at the Leipzig Graduate School of Management (HHL). It's consistently ranked in the top 3 in Germany and I would highly recommend it. It's been a great experience; good classes, good professors, good community and good job prospects.

Plus Leipzig is a nice town to live in; it's large enough that you won't get bored, there is a huge student population, and it's very reasonably priced compared with the rest of Germany and Europe.

I've been to Leipzig a couple of times, staying for a few days on each occasion. I have to say, I completely agree with scall's comments - it's a great city, lots to do, lots of students, and a lot of history. In fact its probably the first place think of living outside Berlin. I've also heard good things about their MBA. I'd be interested to know, scall, whether you think German MBAs are a little underrated internationally, or whether they've just got better. Are you currently working in Germany?

Lukeh -

I don't know how German MBAs used to be, so they very well could have improved over time, but now I certainly think that they are underrated. I received an education that is every bit as good as what I would have received in the USA, but with an international flavor that is missing in the states, and at a fraction of the cost.

As for working in Germany, I'm doing a internship here now and then I will start my full-time job in Hamburg in a couple of months.

Is there anyone here in this board who knows, which MBA programs in Germany have the best reputation internationally, especially in eastern European countries? Thanks


Hi there,

when you look at the international rankings (FT, America Economia, Which MBA) and the international accreditations Mannheim is definitely the best choice. WHU offers a good quality with its EMBA. HHL and Goethe/Frankfurt are average. GISMA had to face some financial problems, but they are closely linked with Purdue.

Beware of the ESMT!!! They have a disastrous image in Germany. They are not internationally accredited (they hardly received an accreditation in Germany), not ranked yet and they have a very small faculty. Articles in the FTD, Spiegel online or Handelsblatt prove that. ESCP-EAP has only a small branch in Germany.

Fachhochschulen only offer programs of minor quality, i.e. they are not able to compete in the international market.

Hope that helps you.

Best,
JL

That's not true anymore. ESMT has the AMBA accreditation now: http://www.esmt.org/eng/about-esmt/esmt-internationally-accredited/

A little step forward for them. But the fact that they hardly got accredited by the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) proves that they are still struggling with heavy problems. There are many better schools in Germany, believe me!

Disappointing? Why? I actually think the DAAD site is a useful lead for scholarships. Oh, and I've actually never heard of those German business schools you mentioned. Sorry.

Hi, I am a graduate from Offenburg University of Applied Sciences. The MBA program there is small, but the professors and lecturers also come from some of the top consulting companies such as Roland Berger. The concentration is in Consulting, but it covers general management topics as well. I have found it to be most useful, especially if you have a small budget. Scholarships are not that easy to obtain, but DAAD website has one of the most comprehensive list of scholarschip providers. Wish you good luck in your applications.
