HHL Leizpig Vs Frankfurt Vs UCD Dublin

Hi.. I have got admits to FT MBA programmes from HHL and Frankfurt schools in Germany and UCD in Dublin Ireland. Please suggest which of the above schools would be a better choice. I have 5+ experience in IT in India and would like to move towards consulting roles(preferably within technology sector). I have a strict budget constraint and would like to conclude my MBA with minimum overhead loan, therefore living expense is also a thing to be considered. I have started learning German, but not sure how much I would be able to grasp in 7-8 months before the session starts. UCD would have released me of the language barrier, and also UCD is the standout school in Ireland. Talking about HHL and FS, they dont seem to be at the top in Germany at the moment(not sure about the actual ranking though) however Germany should have better opportunities compared to Ireland, but again the language constraint comes into play. I am totally confused at the moment, any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you were in Germany now studying the language full time then you could get to B1, maybe even B2. HHL has a 21 month track which has a slow enough tempo to learn the language. I think your motivation to learn the language, and how attracted you are to these cities, is really key.

Yes true, language can be learnt. But then the question remains weather to choose Germany or Ireland for better opportunities in consulting. And if Germany then Frankfurt or HHL ?

Languages have to be learn to at least a high intermediate before starting the course, unless you study in German. That is my point.

If you want to work in the place where you study after the MBA, I would go with Ireland. You can already speak the language; it will take you a lot longer to get the necessary German skills to be able to function in a management position in a field like consulting.

The current FT Global MBA Ranking has the Germany-based b-schools ranked in this order:

WHU (71)
Mannheim (77)
ESMT (79)

HHL and Frankfurt School are also well regarded, just not ranked. Actually, I think Frankfurt's MBA program may be too new to be listed in the FT - it launched in 2014.
