Purdue launches preexperience MSc in Germany


Duncan

Purdue's partner in Germany, GISMA, is running its MSc in industrial administration. The 11 month Purdue degree is open to science and engineering graduates with little or no work experience: http://www.gisma.com/executiveeducation.html?&L=1

This is a AASCB-accredited programme which is more or less identical to the one year Purdue MBA offered at GISMA, but for 24K rather than 33K.

Interesting - I suppose if I didn't have any work experience I'd be looking at something like this, rather than an MBA or an EMBA. However, there's a bit of a dilemma: why would candidates opt for something like this rather than building their work experience and landing an MBA program with more ROI potential?

I guess it ultimately depends on what kind of positions a grad from this kind of program can land.

Well, I think you can see from the discussions on this website that there are huge numbers of people in India willing to go to get very bad RoI by going to universities without internationals accreditation. With the exception of the project work, it looks to me like this will be exactly the same content as the MSIA at Purdue and one year MBA at GISMA. I guess candidates will study alongside the MBAs for exchanges and electives. And all with a highly ranked degree - http://www.krannert.purdue.edu/news/rankings.asp

AFAIK, there's a huge pressure to do the MBA quickly in India so that students can find work, and thus marry, as soon as possible.

Yes, I have noticed that on this board. Hopefully those applicants aren't dissuaded by the fact that the program does require them to take the GMAT. :)

Otherwise, it does seem like a decent program, and looks like it's closing the gap between MBA programs and MScs.
