It's called the Euro*MBA. Perhaps one of people in its facebook group will answer any questions you have. http://www.linkedin.com/groups?home=&gid=66083

Btw..for 2012 intake costs for the Mannheim mba have reached 33000e.
If I remember well for 2011 it was 27000 (more than 20% up): high demand for german certificates? (or maybe...Germany economy is actracting lots of people)

Yeah,
more it must be considered that living costs there are quite low (compared to Switzerland, Denmark, ecc).

True, but living costs (rent in particular) vary quite a bit within Germany. Frankfurt is more expensive than Berlin, for example.

Whu told me that living costs in Vallendar are at 650e/month ... is that possible ?

Wow .. I pay 500e/month only to rent a small apartment in a small town located in a quite rich italian region :-)
By the way Whu is the only German BS which told me that German language is not important for the placement process (and this sounds quite strange since that it's considered very important for Mannheim, HHL, Gisma, ecc)

Living costs will include food and other expenses. Placement in Germany certainly involves German! Maybe the Indian and Chinese graduates return home?

this is what they wrote me


No, you do not need to have any knowledge of the German language and this does not
affect neither your application nor your placement process. The whole program is taught
in English and most of the companies WHU is in touch with are international ones.
We offer German classes to our international students from the preparation courses
until the end of the program

If knowledge of German does not affect the placement process, then why do they 'waste' time teaching German?

;-)

Seriously, ask for placement statistics about which countries the international students end up working in, in contrast to the German graduates.

Yeah... Mannheim, Gisma, HHL, ESMT are very clear about it. They all say that german is very important (and they suggest to start studying as soon as possible). More, they are fair since in their placement stats they always differentiate german students success (normal it's 100%) from other nationalities.

I was partially surprised from Whu answer.

why not ? in international MNC's like bosch,siemens you can get by in english,

i was in spain and france last year.i got by with englsh in the workplace. outside it was a different story :)

i struggled to always find english speakers ,like when i hear only mumbo jumbo instructions on the new calling card and could not understand a word.(but i found a solution in the information desk :)). the books ,cd's all were in french or spanish.

even english versions of hollywood flicks were in certain theatres.i found it diffuclt to communicate to the ticket counter operator that i wanted a round trip to barcelona and he was confused why i mentioned 2 different dates.

and it was not nice getting stranded in a town when i found no cabs after getting down from the metro and i could not tell anyone intelligibly that i am lost.

So the language classes may not be just about some work opportunities but to make life easier in general. its tough otherwise.

English is *a* working language at Siemens, but look at their job adverts to see how many roles in Germany require German.

WHU, Mannheim and HHL are best in Germany.
Nevertheless, the MBA in Germany getting more and more important, even though it is no needed to get good jobs. Our CEO (75k+ employees) has not studied.
