MBA in Germany or Japan


Hello. I am from Myanmar (Burma). I am working at a self-employed small trading company (imports medical devices, bandages, surgical gloves, etc. from foreign countries and distributes in Myanmar) but I will also be working at other company (not mine) as a full-time employee because the mentioned trading company is my family business which is flexible.

My goal is to attend MBA in Germany but found out that top MBA schools in Germany are quite expensive and GMAT requirements are very high. I kindly would like to know the suggestion for MBA in Germany. My backup plan is that if I don't have a chance to enter into good ranking MBA in Germany, I am thinking to choose between HWR Berlin or NUCB in Japan. After MBA, I intend to return to Myanmar, or work in UK/ Korea/ Thailand later. So working in Germany is not included in my plan.

So my questions are that;
- Suggestion for MBA in Germany
- HWR Berlin (or) NUCB Japan

My grades are as below -
B.Eng (Hons) Mechatronics GPA - 3.4/4.0
BBA GPA - 3.1/4.0
IELTS similar test - 7.5
German language - None
GMAT/GRE - Haven't taken yet. (Kinda worry that I might not get a good score as my main academic discipline is Engineering)

Many Thanks.

NUCB is better than HWR, but I am not sure why you are looking only at those countries. Why not look at Korea, Thailand, Taiwan, Singapore...?

Thank you for your answer Mr. Stuart. 

For Singapore, I don't feel like it suits with me as there are common cases of social inequality, and related things which I heard from my colleague who is studying in Singapore right now. I am kinda interested in KAIST from Korea but I'm not sure that whether Japan has a stronger reputation for education over Korea or not. 

In Myanmar, most of the employers do not enjoy to employ people who achieved degrees from Thailand and Taiwan. Most employers in Myanmar focus on country rather than ranking. They are likely to hire people who got a degree from very low ranking university/liberal college from USA over people who got a degree from high/ good ranking university in Asia. They are blinded by the country rather than ranking unfortunately. 

Is there some good universities/ business schools for MBA in Germany? (Neither pretty expensive top B schools nor low ranking schools) Do you have any recommendation that you prefer?

Thanks again !

The Eduniversal ranking is a good guide. ESB, Pforzheim and Esslingen are affordable options in Germany.

But without a solid command of German, finding a job in the country after graduation will prove difficult.
