MBA WHU vs Mannheim vs HHL


ms_kathi
Hi There,

I know that there are some outdated posts speaking about this scenario, so I am hoping to get a fresh take.

I have been accepted into HWR (Berlin) HHL (Leipzig) and am still in the interview process for WHU and Mannheim (with good odds to get into both). I've applied to ESMT but I don't think I'll hear back in time to include them in the decision process since they start later.

I speak English fluently and I'm at intermediate German with hopes of becoming fluent (or close to) by the end of my time in the program. I'm looking for employment opportunities within Real Estate Investment in Europe or US.

I want to know from an employment and network standpoint which of these universities is best for me to attend?

Can anyone give any feedback about how to make this tough decision? Also, should HWR still be considered as an option due to its affordability, or because it lacks a "weighted name" I shouldn't attend?

Thank you!

I can't see any reason to consider HWR.

Where in Germany are the real estate investment firms concentrated? Generally, the money is in the West...

Mannheim seems like a decent fit, WHU as well. I'm not sure that the Berlin schools would have many decent connections with real estate investment firms, but maybe ask them?

Are you also considering Frankfurt School?

Employment opportunities-wise, it's best to keep your options narrow (focus on Germany if you go to a German school.) Outside of a top-10 MBA—or just doing your MBA in the US—I'm not sure that it will be that easy for you to get a job in the US. A top UK school might open your options a bit.
