MBA in Europe - Opportunities, Advantages and Disadvantages


Hi.. I am planning to apply for MBA in Germany for Wintersemester - October 2021. I am currently having 3+ years of experience in IT industry and more specifically in Data Science. I am looking to move to a Product Owner/Project Manager kind of role post my MBA. I am targeting lower fee universities like FH Pforzheim, Berlin School of Economics and Law(BSEL) or ESB Business School. I have not taken GMAT yet hence ESB Business school is my first priority. Can anyone pls tell me if an MBA in Germany, in say, ESB Business school would help me to move to a role like Product Owner or Project Manager in an IT/Data based company?

Thanks in Advance. :)

I would assume that very few people in such roles would have MBAs rather than masters degrees in some form of technology, and would typically have studied in German if they are working in Germany. See:

Thank you for your reply, Duncan. Can you please specify what kind of roles people usually take up post MBA in the field of IT in Germany?

I am understand the traditional MBA fields people move to such as Finance, Marketing, Strategy or Operations. I am not clear on what roles one can take up in an IT company in Germay such as Amazon, IBM or Bechtle AG after MBA.

I think you can answer that yourself using the approach outlined in the article about LinkedIn that I posted above. 

If you'd like me to do that for that, read my profile page about how to book a consultation.

I think you might want to refine the question you posed: what sort of roles are taken up by-non-European MBA graduates with your level of German?
