Masters in Europe


sj08
Hi folks,

I am a mechanical engineer with around 4 years experience working for a German automotive component manufacturing company. I am currently working as a senior engineer, Sales & development. I also have also been to Germany for technical knowledge transfer where I stayed for 3 months. As of now,my job is getting new businesses,New product development, managing projects and coordinating between plants in China, India and Brazil.
Now I want to go for higher education. But I am confused on whether to go for Msc in International business or MBA.(in France or Germany)
My job career has been impressive for which I have been given top performer of the year award and my LOR states the same. However I had an average bachelors score. Also I got IELTS score of 8, but my GRE score is low at 295. I do not have the option to re-appear for GRE as I have tremendous work load from work which leaves me with hardly much time to prepare.

Now can anyone guide me on where to apply with highest probability of getting an admission with good future prospects (considering my work ex and bachelors degree)

Any further suggestions would be welcomed.

Well, my goal is to be a successful manager. Since I already have technical education. I would want to have greater idea of the finance and understand the market better.

I think any MBA can do that. Did you consider some other education? The GRE is often taken as a sign that you considered an MS or PhD in the USA.

Generally, did you consider EDHEC, Frankfurt, or HHL?

Yes. I am also thinking that MBA would be a right choice, but most of the universities ask for GMAT/GRE score. And I have low GRE score, Hence the thought of MSc International business came to my mind. I also saw that when compared to MBA, MSc has a lesser stringent requirement of GMAT/GRE. Also the fee is quite less in MSc.
So where do you think I have a possible chance of getting an admission.
I have considered EDHEC, they have stated that GRE/GMAT is not compulsory for their MSc Global Business program. But I m not sure if I will have a chance of getting there.
Frankfurt & HHL have a compulsory GRE/GMAT requirement.

You'll have many, many more options if you take the GMAT. For your goal of having "good future prospects," you'll have much more chance of success if you did your MBA at a school which requires the GMAT.
