Look at the Mannheim, ESCP Berlin and Cologne schools on this list: http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/masters-in-management-2012 They are designed for students without undergraduate degrees in business.

EBS is not as good as those schools, so aim for one of the ranked school.

I will be moving to Munich(husband's onsite) in some time and have applied for offenburg, MBS. Would like to do MBA in Germany. I have 3+ yrs of experience in IT. I would like to know the recognition of German's MBA in India. Will MBA in Offenburg or Pforzheim be recognised in India(in terms of salary, position) or is it this way, MBA from Mannmeim/HHL, etc.. only be recognised due to international accrediation. I think more of Indians will be able to help me on this better. Thanks.

That seems like a question to ask the schools.

I think ESMT is a fine choice - although if you could land a spot at Mannheim (which is ranked in the FT), it might be worth putting it off a year.

Maybe ESMT would give you a better scholarship package with your improved score? It would be worth asking them, because this might change the calculus.

Have you considered putting off your MBA for a couple years? Because the better schools - ESMT, Mannheim, etc. - usually recruit candidates with 5-6 years of experience.

I want to know that for getting job in germany is it necesaary that i should have good command over german language.

Pretty much, yeah. There are some international companies working out of the bigger cities, which may only need English, but these tend to be pretty rare. Rather, the SMEs (they call these the "Mittelstand" in Germany), fuel the economy and almost exclusive do business in German.

Duncan,

I have read all of your post and I?m extremely thankful for all your advices. I?m thinking of doing an MBA in Germany and my goal is to work in Germany after the MBA. For you, what is the best MBA? I?m from Argentina (27 years old). I have 2 years of experience in a consulting company. My GPA in BA is not so good but I have a GMAT of 730 and pass the CFA Level III. I?m fluent in Spanish, German and English.
I?m thinking of applying in 2014.
Thanks for all your help!

Mannheim is clearly the best MBA in Germany. ESMT, HHL and WHU are all strong contenders depending on your career goal.

PS Although it's not in Germany, I think I would say that HSG is the most powerful business school in Germany.

Interesting trivia. The 1500 alumni of HHL have created 2500 jobs.

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.

It depends on the school and your cultural adaptation, not just language. If you go to an FT ranked MiF and speak fluent German before starting the course then you have a strong position.

Hi Duncan,

I am an engineer and MBA from top schools in India. I have worked for six years in the energy sector in strategy, regulatory affairs and policy advocacy. Last two and a half years, I've started a consulting and project management company. I have a 330 out of 340 in GRE. I am looking for a good 1-year MBA program in Europe. Primary considerations- a program that can get me close to full tuition scholarship; ability to place in a country with a liberal visa policy (dont want to come back to India in the near future; reasonable placements in the energy sector. Look forward to receiving your reply. Thanks.
