job prospects after pursuing an MBA in Germany...


Dommelsch
Guys,

Remember one thing that MBA from Germany is not internationally ranked, which means that once you move out of Germany, it is least likely that you will get any real advantage. When you will compete with students from other internationally ranked business schools, you will find that you receive a second class treatment. I would suggest you guys to target only top 30 institutions of the world as in the FT rankings. You migh be fascinated by the German MBA stamp at this point of time but you might come acorss serious challenges in this crisis, when even the graduates of leading business schools face challenge to get a good job. It also depends, how far you want to go with your MBA. If you wish to be a industry leader in international environment or something, then no one cares for MBA's from such institutions. MBA is one time investment, better wait and take the right options, else you might feel like to have not achieved much.

I stayed in Germany for few years, and i can tell you that Hochschule is not something great in Germany. So you can look out at some better options in other European countries.

Hope it helps.

Cheers,
Rox

there are not a huge number of jobs in St.Gallen itself, but that is a nice place to be unemployed! If you don't speak german and aren't part of a network, it can be almost impossible to find a job. english speakers at the university join international companies because of the reputation and network of the career services, but without it you could be limited to French/english teaching positions.

You should have a look on http://www.experteer.ch/ and try applying for a few jobs to see what the feedback is.

course, Zurich is a lot more attractive for jobs. You are comparing a small university town with one of the worlds most important financial capitals....

one question though, why are you posting on an MBA forum since you are looking for jobs and not an MBA? You should be on www.englishforum.ch instead.

Hi there,

I am based in Germany, but I have never heard of this school. It is a German Fachhochschule, which is not a real university, but which has more the character of a commercial college. That means, it is only a second tier academic institution in Germany.

Ok this has GOT to stop..

Am addressing myself to JohnyL and ofc all of the readers.

People are coming in this forums for help and JohnyL all he does is misleading ppl by disadvertising any kind of Hochsschule with so much passion.

I invite every1 to check previous msgs of HohnyL and you will realize that he DOES heard of Berlin Hochschule Fur Wirstschaft und Recht.

R u working for a private education institute and dont want to lose "clients?"

I do not live in Germany any more am belgian but have studied there.

Hochschulen are perfectly well known and recognized universities whicvh offer very solid education.

If u plan to stay in Germany after ur graduation then a Hochschule is maybe right for you since you get lower fees,excellent education standards (some of them offer PhDs now)more contact with the industry and trust me you WILL find a job easier and you know why?cause yes it is a fact that hochschulen graduates are paid less.But ur goal is to find a job and not come to germany to earn millions on ur first year..after that your carreer is ALL up to you.

I klnow you are confused but do not trust some random poster who is trying to discourage you.

Kind Regards,

The job market in Germany looks really strong right now. Unemployment has reached a 18-year low: http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/4aad862e-e27b-11df-9ea3-00144feabdc0.html

I'm an mechanical engineer from Eastern Europe with three years managerial work experience in a MNC. I speak English and some basic German.

Which German MBA program would you suggest to land a job in management in Germany/Europe?

Hi Johnny,

Really appreciate all your information on this blog!!

I am planning to pursue Masters in Finance from Hochschule Coburg University of applied sciences.. Can you please advice if it is a good decision. I have particularly chosen this university as i have financial constraints & cannot afford more than ?1500 per semester.

PS: I am presently working with a UK based Insurance Co. here in bombay, India since 4 years.

Thanks & Regards,
Dave.

Hi Naman,

don't worry: WHU is a good choice in Germany, at least a much better option than ESMT, EBS, GISMA and even HHL. And as far as I am informed it is not that easy to get admitted to Mannheim and St. Gallen. Have you ever thought about Goethe BS Frankfurt? That could be an option too since they will offer a fulltime program in 2009.

Best,
JL

This looks like a very weak course, based on lectures and seminars rather than practical skills bulding.

Look instead at:
-- the Financial Times ranking of pre-experience masters in finance, and
-- the listing of CFA partner universities.

Some of those are within your budget. Any of them will be better than Coburg.
