IMB-HWR vs. HTW

I think this really depends on your goals. If you don't want to work in Germany, then it doesn't matter where you go. Ue the CHE ranking to get the best you can find.

If you wanted to stay in Germany then you could take one or two semesters to improve your German and then attend much better universities like Kassel, Göttingen, Erlangen-Nürnberg, Karlsruhe or Mannheim. They cost 1,000 or 2,000 a year or so for courses in German leading to a much higher quality MSc.

Hi Duncan,

So basically If we were to attend HTW Berlin MBA&E, we would find it difficult to find jobs after the completion or we may not find good jobs at all and have to return home without finding jobs in any place in Germany since the course is not internationally accredited ? Can you please confirm that we are on the same page regarding this point.

Obviously Berlin is, by German standards, a very poor city. It's GDP per capita is half that of Munich and the other top cities. It's also by the Polish border, far from the engineering heartland along the Rhine. However, it's clear that HTW gets good placement from its graduate programmes. Needless to say, you will require fluent German.

If you wanted to find work in Germany then I'd suggest first take one or two semesters to get up to professional German and then take a masters taught in German.

HTW is one of the most successful engineering schools outside the traditional universities. If you speak good German and do well in the programme then I think it's a good choice. Obviously it would be better to go to one of the traditional universities rather than a Fachhochschule, or to the RWTH.
