MBA in Leadership


Kyle Noby
Hi all,

I am looking forward to take an MBA in Leadership from Europe, preferably Germany(2016).

I am computer engineer by profession and has worked in an MNC (8 months) as technical support and a software developer in a start up company (6 months) and presently working in Internet marketing.

Is there any chance of studying MBA in leadership Germany. If so, what are the job opportunities I could avail and what would be the future scope of doing MBA in the same.

Which job sectors require professionals with MBA in leadership.

Thank You.

I can't think of many German businesses that would hire *leaders* with 14 months' work experience. That perhaps also explains why there are no serious MBAs in "leadership" in Germany. If you're looking for an accredited MBA in Europe, you'll neeed three years' work experience.

Take a look at:-
GMAT Tiers - strong schools for your GMAT www.find-mba.com/board/27082

How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571

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

Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143

With your work experience, you'd be better off looking at Master in Management programs. Germany's got a number of good ones, look into the MiMs offered by WHU, EBS, Mannheim Business School, and HHL to start with.

All good management programs will contain a leadership component. Although I'd hesitate to say that you're guaranteed to be a good leader after a program like this, because leadership development really takes hands-on experience, rather than classroom learning.

Also, if you plan on working in Germany after graduation, you'll want to have German-language skills, but that's another topic.

Thank you for the valuable information. This seem to be very informative and I think I need to change the course I'm looking for.
Actually speaking I'm perplexed about choosing the right kind of MBA program. Though having a computer science background I think I'm not really good at it. There is still more to explore in this field to choose the right track. I know its a bit early to take up MBA. What are the other options out there? Can you list a few in particular Coz I wanted to be good in the skill of management of both people and the technical aspects. I have a future thinking of starting a business in a well organized manner. I could use my management experience and skillset to help expand my business.

This is what I have in mind and is there anyone who could suggest ideas for the right kind of MBA for me.

Thank you!

If you want to work in Germany, you should take a two-year MSc in management at a top German, Swiss or Austrian school and arrive early to take an intensive German course. The breadth and flexibility of a two-year course will give you the space to find a way forward. If you want the option to set up your own business then Laurie's recommendation of HHL is perfect.
