Beware of rotten apples on the market like ESMT and EBS! Their acadmic quality is considered to be poor.

JonnyL: Harsh words. ESMT just got the AMBA accreditation: http://www.esmt.org/eng/about-esmt/esmt-internationally-accredited/

I'm convinced AMBA would not accredit a program with a poor academic quality.

There are only few business schools in Germany with an international accreditation. Some German schools are accredited by FIBAA, but in the business world a FIBAA accreditation doesn't carry the same weight as AMBA, Equis or AASCB.

Hi LaVoz,

I know that these are harsh words. But when you take a look at the German press, I do not exaggerate.

The image of ESMT is very poor in Germany and in my opinion this will not be changed by the AMBA accreditation. If you speak German, take a look at the accreditation report of the German Council of Science and Humanities (Wissenschaftsrat) and you know what I am talking about... This accreditation is not an international one, but it focuses on academic quality and what they wrote about ESMT was far away from being positive.

Hi,

Can you help me with some information about Hochschule Offenburg - Offenburg University of Applied Sciences mba program,about it ranking or how good is the program.Jobs after MBA

Also which mba is better Hochschule Offenburg or FHW Berlin.


Hi Paul, this is Attiya.
I'm curious about your experience in Hamburg.
You sound quite happy about it in general. How would you evaluate more precisely the MBA, in terms of quality of the program?
A question often asked on this board is to know how German MBAs can compete with the good MBAs internationally and especially on the European level. The reason is that German MBAs are usually accredited by special accr. bodies not so known outside German speaking, and also you won't find many in the international rankings.
Hope to hear back from you!

Hi rohit,
The answer to your question depends very much on your background and your aims. Where are you from? How much experience do you have? Which business sector/specialization? What kind of MBA are you planning to do? Where do you want to work afterwards.

Generally you can say that In some fields (such as IT and engineering) jobs prospects for foreign educated job applicants in Germany are good even for those who don't speak German. However, for most jobs in management you will need a very good command of German and substantial work experience to be able to compete with German applicants.

Hi there,

Both Offenburg and FHW Berlin are Universities of Applied Sciences in Germany. That means that they are not real universities, but a bit more like commercial colleges. They do not have to do research and therefore they will never manage to enter the international rankings and, of course, they are not internationally accredited. They may offer a solid education, but not more. And career services are normally poor at those institutions.

Hi,
I am an MBA graduate from University of Applied Sciences Offenburg. Even if it is not internationally accredited, it has an outstanding list of professors and guest lecturers, which is more than worth the cost of the program. It is in a beautiful location, low living costs and easily accessible to Strasbourg in France and Switzerland. It is really international, you can say every student in the class is of different nationality. Small class ensures a really interactive learning. I could not afford to pay high fees for MBA from Mannheim, which is 4 X more than here. Even a students who transferred from Pforzheim has mentioned that MBA in Offenburg has a much better content and structure. Job opportunities are not lacking, all alumni who have decided to stay in Germany did manage to get a job (within their internship semester or immediately upon graduation). So it is really up to you on how best to make use of your opportunity here.

Hi, My name is Sreeja and am an Indian. I am a Bachelor in Engineering and have 7.6 years of industrial experience including functioning in managerial capacity. I would like to know which schools are better in terms of quality education and job market (after MBA). I am aiming to apply for the September session. I am writing IELTS and GMAT in April this year. I also wish to know how a German MBA grad can compete in the international/ European market in comparison with Grads from UK/ France/ USA, is it at par?. I plan to learn German before I come to Germany. Are there enough jobs available for potential MBA Grads? I intend to work in Germany after Graduation. Is it possible to work part-time while doing MBA. I intend to do MBA in International Business or some other stream that suits me. What do you think about a General MBA? Job prospects? Should I steer clear with any schools?

Hi there,

As far as I can oversee it, GISMA is only ranked with its EMBA in the FT ranking (together with TiasNimbas, Purdue, and CEU). The fulltime program is not listed.

Last year some media in the Hanover area reported that they have to struggle with financial problems. In fact, they are not first choice in Germany.

I would like to do MBA here in Germany, but I don't know what kind of MBA to choose.I speak german language also. I have Bachelor(or graduate in Metall engineering) in Macedonia. I hope that after MBA I'll stay in Germany or maybe back in Macedonia, but anyway It have to be on international. Here in Mannheim is a Business School but it is too exepensive for MBA 29.000 euro. I don't know what to do and where should I go. I haven't done GMAT and TOEFL yet and also I'm scared that I ain't gonna make for the date line for the next semestar. I would be gratefull if You'll give me some usefull advices. BEst regards, Maja

it seems it is only accredited by Acquin(Akkreditierungs-, Certifizierungs- und Qualitätssicherungs-Instituts), a German accreditation institute, and doesn't have any of the important accreditation. it is usually not recommended to study in a B school which doesn't hold at least one of the important ones(AACSB, AMBA or EQUIS).

they have 2 programs, one for people with, and one for people without any business education.

as for the other good schools in Germany, just search the board, and you will quickly find the answer yourself!
