M.Sc in Business Informatics or Information Systems in Germany

Hiii Everyone,

This is my first post and I'm sure I will get my doubts clear on this forum. Some parts of my post might be a bit long but I didn't know any other way to put it.

Coming to my profile. I'm from India and have an Engineering degree in Computer Science (Passed out in 2012). Due to some family problems I had to drop out of college for 2 years (2010 & 2011). I looked after my father's business and finally I got back to my studies and completed my engineering successfully in 2012.

P.S : I did have quite a few backlogs in my engineering.

Since then I have worked in Amazon.com for 15 months and combined with the exp of managing my father's business I have about 3 yrs of work exp (I have no proof of those 2 yrs but can explain how I managed my father's business in detail).

I'm really interested in pursuing a Masters Degree in Business Informatics or Information Systems or any other similar degree in Germany.

Need your advice in choosing a good course and about job prospects in Germany for such courses. I'm willing to learn German 3-4 months before coming there.

Also will my 2 year gap in education affect my application.

I have looked into the following courses :

1) Data and Knowledge Engineering, Otto von Guericke University, Magdeburg

2) International Management and Engineering, TU Hamburg

These are all very good universities. Take a look at the CHE ranking for business informatics at http://ranking.zeit.de/che2013/de/fachinfo/2

Thanks Duncan fro your quick reply.

But what I'm worried about is my 2 year gap in education. I wish these universities don't ask for all my transcripts.

Could you please clarify what chance do I stand of getting into one of these colleges.

These sound like questions to ask the schools. I am an expert in MBA programmes, so I am not the right person to ask.
