Pforzheim Vs Esb Reutlingen


I have received an admit from Pforzheim for the upcoming MBA, international managenent winter intake batch. I also have an interview scheduled for Esb Reutlingen next week. Assuming I get through Esb as well, which program, according to you, is the better option and why? Any suggestions will be of great help.

ESB is more or less obviously the better choice. Take a look at https://find-mba.com/schools/europe/germany/esb-reutlingen/discussions

Hard to say without knowing more. What are your goals? Do you already speak German to a fluent degree?

Well, like the earlier person asked, what are your goals?

ESB being a one-year program won't give you time to work on your German. If your aim is to get into a field where German-speaking is highly required, then it makes sense to invest some time learning it (that is if you aren't proficient already, of course). The program at HSPF will allow you to do so. Also, which program's modules do you find more interesting? Also makes sense to take a look at where and how the alumni are placed and seek feedback from them.

I am an MBA student at HSPF, currently in my final (thesis semester). I chose HSPF because the modules interested me and mainly because I did not want to rush through the curriculum. Some other nice things about this program that I really value are the company experience excursions each semester, ample guest talks, good and helpful career center and the mentorship program where the MBA office pairs you with an established alumnus to guide you navigate through your MBA, job seeking and networking journey.

Hope this helps and good luck with everything!

To be honest, Pforzheim (I can't take this HSPF branding seriously) is almost unique in allowing four semesters of high-quality German-language tuition in the MBA. At most other schools, you could study in English for three or four years and still not graduate with good enough German to work in. As a rule of thumb, people should be at least at the B2 level in the local business language before starting their MBA.
