MBA in Germany - Furtwangen/ESB/Offenburg/HWR Berlin/Bremen


Hallo,

I like to get an idea about the best ranked schools out of the below list to do a full-time MBA in Germany.

I'm from India with close to 20 years of experience in IT and Electrical industry. Since 2007, I'm have been working in IT. I've applied to UK based schools Durham, Strathclyde(rcvd. offer), Edinburgh, Lancaster and Bath. I'm exploring Germany due to the employment opportunities and the quality of life. I started learning German language course in India now. Will try to attain B1 before starting the course. I've not chosen the leading ones in Germany due to the GMAT scores and cost.

Bremen IGC
ESB Reutlingen (AACSB)
Furtwangen
Offenburg
HWR Berlin (AMBA)

Post study goal is to work as a Product Manager in a Software Company for the next 5 to 7 years after the MBA.

Berlin seems to be more international(English speaking city) in nature as per my understanding.

Your inputs would be highly appreciated.

Since those British schools are much better, and since you won't speak German at a professional level by the time you end the MBA, I would not pick Germany. There's is more English spoken In Berlin in shops, but also unemployment there is very high.

Thank you for your valuable insights Stuart. 

Just curious to understand, will UK employs Indian nationals after this Brexit? Shall I apply to Ireland since it's under EU (wider region) as well as English speaking country. Appreciate your reply.

It's hard to predict what hiring will be like in the UK in a year and a half. UK has similar barrier to most Western countries to prefer local hiring but you can see for yourself that UK MBA students, who are almost all not local, still get jobs. I'd prefer Germany if you could work in German, but you won't be able to get your language skills to a high level through an MBA in English.
