MBA in Germany


Duncan
1. That is not a question. Try How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571

2. Hochschule's are not like Germany universities. They take worse students, don't gace doctorial programmes etc. I am not sure what you mean by middle management but, no, Pforzheim prepares people for functional roles not general management. Also try: Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713

3. No. The salary gap will widen.

The other points are well described by other posts. Most students will be far better off at Strathclyde.

Hello Duncan ,

From the list of schools I listed in my first post , I got admit for Pforzheim MBA. I like to get some more info/ feedback about this program. I am comparing most of the points with HHL MBA as it was another program I applied , but unfortunately couldn't get admit there . Can you pls give your thoughts / feedback on below points.

1) Post MBA opportunities from Pforzheim: I have around 8 years experience in automotive and post MBA , I plan to work in product mangement roles in Automotive sector.

2)Hochschule Degree: This program is AACSB accredited program .But in some post I read Hochschule's are not treated like universities by German companies. I am not clear with this? My question is, having a fair amount of experience (8 yrs) ,post MBA program can I expect a middle level management roles or only entry level (management trainee roles)?

3)ROI : I understood one cannot compare the initial ROI (in terms of Salary) of Prozheim with that of MBA prorgams at HHL /Mannheim . But is this applicable only for initial job / placement ?

Below are key attracting things I noticed with this program .
What is your opinion on this ?
1) One of best Hochschule MBA in Germany - (AACSB accredited), but don't know how Hochschule MBA are treated in Germany?
2)Rated as top 10 MS program by DAAD.
3)German language program integrated in curiculum , which is highly recommended for a job in Germany.
4)Internship / company projects and thesis
5)Affordable tuition fees compared to private Schools.


Apart from Pforzheim MBA , I have 2 offers from Uk business schools. (Henley Business school and Strathclyde Business School). I will keep separate thread for this discussion .

Short stints in working as consultant for startups. (1 year all together)
3 years of experience in Recruitment.(not interested to pursue HR field after MBA)


Thanks,

Pforzheim will be better for most candidates. But be very critical: ask both schools about what they think about your chances of transitioning into the country. Ask them to put you in touch with alumni who have successfully made similar transitions.

But if your goal is to get settled in Germany, you might want to consider doing a German-language MBA program instead.
