Picking an MBA in Germany


jaineel.s

It's been quite a ride so far to pick the right MBA program in Germany. A program that offers good quality of education, has the right recognition, affordable, and helps in starting a professional career in Germany.

I have offers from the following universities

SRH, Berlin for EMBA
EBS University for MBA
International Graduate Center (IGC), University of Bremen for Dual degree MBA in partnership with University of Valencia
University of Europe (UE) for MBA
IU (previously known as IUBH) for MBA

I've been reading a lot of debates about private vs public universities. As you can see, my mix has only one public university but I've been getting mixed reviews for it too.

Based on the factors I mentioned above, which one is the best pick?

You don't mention your German-language skills. You seem to have a list of business ranked by their Adworks spend.

in a nutshell:
- If you want to work in a country at a managerial level you need the local language at a high level. If you need to learn high-level German, do so in Germany. I recommend the state universities if budget is an issue. 
- If your budget is limited, look at MSc degrees in the state universities.
- If both, come to Germany for a half- or full-year intensive language school at a state university, and then take an MSc taught in German. 
- If you want a senior management position, first you need a middle-management position in Germany. To get that, you need either to borrow to increase your budget and get into a top-ranked school or work your way up placing maximum emphasis on integration: acculturation, soft skills and advanced language skills.
