SEPT program in Uni Leipzig?

Dear all,

I applied the MBA in SME for this winter semester in Uni Leipzig(http://www.sept.uni-leipzig.de/), who can tell me if it is a good choice? what are the strong points and weak points of the program? If there is chance I can find a job after graduation?

thanks,

This is a good choice for a non-German who wants to learn how German SMEs work and bring that experience back to their home country. Generally there might be one or two Germans in each cohort: the rest are foreigners. There will be no meaningful placement support, since most attendees are planning to return to their own countries. Since the degree is aimed at SMEs, the graduates are not equipped with the sort of skills that the traditional MBA recruiters in Germany would require.

Thanks a lot Duncan! After your explanation I think I will choose FH Esslingen instead.

If anyone here have studied the SEPT MBA, What do you think of the program? How did you find it different from other regular MBAs? How was your experience overall? If I am interested in studying masters related to developing SMEs would you recommend the SEPT MBA for me?

Thank you,

I studied there some years ago and I can tell you this; This program is a rip-off. They scam foreigners who come to study thinking they're getting a degree of world class. In exchange what they get is a scam of 6000 euro if they finance themselves (I studied through the DAAD program for developing countries and I still don't get why this international government finances such a program) look for it in the rankings, nobody even takes it serious enough to include it. The guys with whom I studied and got jobs in Germany are just a few and I can tell you, those guys are heroes because they stand proud of being part of the working class there, but it has to do a lot with their experience and not that much with their SEPT MBA. Actually it is useful if you want to stay in Germany in the sense that the certificate it provides is from a German University (Universität Leipzig shame on you having this pest of administration under your sponsorship) so there are regulations against foreigners of the German government that don't apply for the alumni of this MBA but finding a job with this? you need to be lucky, crazy, smart and good networker all at the same time. Some of my colleagues once told me not to speak about these things because that would also affect me as a graduate, other one told me that if the program was bad, I as a graduate am also bad. To these issues I can tell you:
1-if it affects me as a graduate is ok. I prefer to be honest and warn other people about this scam, why? because the ones paying by themselves pay such an incredible amount of money and usually come from the developing world; where this money must have been earned ways harder than in Europe.
2-The program is bad and I'm not. Why? because my professionality, experience, and hard work allow me to want things better. I wanted to be challenged as I am in my every day, instead, I've got irresponsible teachers, lectures recycled from previous years and doubtful grading systems.
Am I an MBA? yes, I am, the product of my professional experience and self-taught with books like the pocket MBA or books about vsm and b-modeling. Am I an MBA because of the SEPT? never. Run like hell from this program!
