mba in germany


Dear sir,

I am new to the group. I am indranil from India. I am an engineer in electrical engineering having almost 5 years experience in engineering and techno commercial sales. I want to upgrade my profile and do an mba from Germany. Main reason being my extreme fondness towards German education system and also the universities support my financial condition.
I have been accepted by cologne business school for their fast track mba of 12months, htw berlin for their mba &e course, kempten business school of applied sciences for mba and iubh for international business. I have gone through the accreditions and I am pretty confused. My main objective is to work in an international market, for that its not compulsory that I need to stay in Germany post degree. I don't have any knowledge of German and hope to learn while I am doing my mba there as there ate courses offered in the university.

Considering the above facts please suggest which university I should opt for. My inclination is towards kempten. I seek your suggestion

Take a look at Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713

It can be absolutely excluded that you will be able to learn German to a professional level alongside a full-time MBA programme. Ask these schools if they can recommend a Studienkolleg or a university with an intensive DSH programme [either option will involve one or two semesters prior to starting the masters degree, but it is an excellent investment]. These will allow you to enter the MBA speaking excellent German, and that is really the precondition for gaining internships, doing well in job interviews and really enjoying the experience of a German business school.

None of these schools have really respected international accreditation. At the very least, look for FIBAA accreditation. Also compare their selection criteria: if one of them required higher English scores, for example, or more work experience, then that is useful.

I imagine that you know that these are not the best schools in Germany, or even the second tier of schools (like Pforzheim, Esslingen, Reutlingen, Nurenburg or Offenburg). Perhaps look at those and consider the CHE ranking of German universities of applied science http://www.find-mba.com/board/27248 You have strong work experience and should be able to get into a better programme.
