Help with suggestion for MBA universities in Southern Germany/Czech Republic/Croatia/Hungary


Thyrfing

Hello,

I am a 32-year-old Swede currently completing a bachelor in business management at a well known American university. I should be graduating by December 2020 and I am consequently looking for an MBA program to jump right in to for a seamless transfer at the beginning of 2021. I have 12 years of work experience back in Sweden in the field of construction, both as manual labor and at a managerial level.

I will probably be leaving the U.S for several reasons, one being the ridiculously high tuition fee they charge us international students (~43k USD for a one year MBA at my current university).

If anyone has experience with the University of Economics in Prague, Czech Republic, please enlighten me as they are a prospect university that I am in contact with.


Furthermore, I am grateful for university suggestions within the following parameters;

Country - Southern Germany, Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary, Poland, Austria, or any other Mid/East European country
Tuition - Under €30k in total
Language - The program must be in English, but I can have a basic conversation in German
Length - Max 24 months, preferably 12.
Program start - January 2021


Thanks!

Do you have any goals, or central European languages?

My goal is to work in the construction field somewhere in Europe, preferably not Sweden. And no, I do not know any central European languages.

A few reactions:
- Since most Swedes speak really good Swedish, I'd suggest you look at the German- and Dutch-speaking regions.
- However, the January start date is a big limitation. As you know, the academic year tends to start in October.
- Would a specialised master give you better price performance? E.G. http://www.courses.knect365-learning.com/event/international-construction-practice-and-law-part-time-course-university-of-stuttgart-master-of-business-engineering-mbe?utm_source=studyportals&utm_medium=referral&utm_content=listing&xtssot=0

Rotterdam, IMD and EDHEC are the best European MBAs that start in January. their full-time MBAs are over your one-year budget, but you could take a part-time/executive MBA and stretch the fees over two years.

Just make sure - for any country you target - that these schools actually have the ability to place non-domestic language speakers into the construction industry. For instance in the German construction industry I doubt there is much room for management-level, non-German speakers, regardless of whether they have an MBA or not.
