Take a look at
CHE ranking of German universities of applied science http://www.find-mba.com/board/27248
and
Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713

Furtwangen is part of the bottom tier of German higher education, the Fachhochschulen. These are vocational teaching schools typically without PhD or research work, and which don't often have strong placement services since students are either already in work or are feeding into very local employers. They are subsidised, and are able to offer inexpensive programmes in English which are popular with international students. Few of these perform well with employers, and the CHE ranking is useful there.

If you have a good engineering degree and some good experience, a year on a German course might be better for you than a year in an English-speaking degree.

Thanks a lot for the briefing Duncan !!!

Though am not familiar with German....I do have plans to take up German lang classes......

It would be of great help if you give me an insight on the course.
The course is ACQUIN accredited and i saw an ranking of the same in the below link

http://www.best-masters.com/ranking-master-business-intelligence-knowledge-and-security-management/western-europe/fh-furtwangen-university-msc-business-consulting.html

Am interested in the course because it kind of blends IT and Business...Which seems to have a good scope.

Am still in a dilemma to give a Go or No Go !!!!

I'm not sure what your goals are and what your alternatives are. I'm not sure what I can tell you. This is a website about MBAs and I'm an MBA specialist. I know that this course won't lead you to an MBA level role, and I know that if you only have 'plans' to learn German then you will not be at a professional standard of German when you graduate. I also know that there are not strong careers services at Furtwagen.
