Since you don't mention having even a basic qualification in Germany, the odds are against you. http://www.hs-esslingen.de/en/the-university/faculties/graduate-school/masters-programs/mba-in-international-industrial-management/how-to-apply.html

I think there are good chance of employment after the Esslingen MBA for students with fluent German. See: Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713

It might be too late at this point, I don't know where you are in your application schedule, but another option could be HHL Leipzig, which is listed as a "top school for a career in industrial management and manufacturing" here:

That's if you're looking for other options. I'm honestly not sure which would be a better fit for you without a clear sense of your goals.

Hi Shiva

Do apply to other MBA programs in the region as well. Apart from Esslingen Apply to IBC MBA program in Offenburg ( 15 months fast track program ) course fee is affordable and living costs are much lower than other programs , HS Pforzheim course fee is also in the similar range but 2 years program , other schools like ESMT , EBS etc are very high in course fees, but at the end the employability after any MBA program will highly depend on your language skills and professional acumen.

The Pforzheim program is great, and the school is accredited by AACSB International. However, I think that without German language skills, it's really hard to land a job after an MBA in Germany. With a ranked MBA program (ESMT, Mannheim), at least you'd have a broader network and better career services.

Just to add on to what ashok and badux said: it is very important to speak good German at least by the time you graduate. If you are mainly considering MBA programs at this price range, I also recommend the Pforzheim MBA program, which is AACSB accredited and has an integrated (and free) German course.

I really doubt somebody without any German knowledge can pick up enough of the language in two years while also doing a full-time MBA program.

In any case, most MBA English-language programs in Germany offer German classes, this is not unique to Pforzheim. ESMT has a partnership with Goethe to offer an intensive pre-MBA German course, and then offers language courses throughout the program. Mannheim has German language classes free of charge throughout the program.

There is a difference between programmes. Some of the programmes has a German-language requirement before arrival, as Esslingen does. Others will not have enough teaching to go beyond the elementary level.
