Search the board to find out more about these schools, and read:-
Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713
Best schools for international students' placement http://www.find-mba.com/board/41143

Assuming all these schools make offers to you, your best option would be spend a year to learn German and then to go to the HSG. But if you don't want to learn a new language then you should probably identify other schools in countries with English-speaking workplaces.

If Edinburgh and CBS have accepted you (and congratulations on that) then I would also consider EADA, Durham, Bath and Lancaster. Maybe even Strathclyde could be possible?

Hi Duncan,

Thank you for response.

As per your comment, it seems i should not opt for HSG without german language capability. Am i comprehending it correct?

They make a very similar point on their website. In my opinion, HSG is such a stronger option that it would be worth taking the time to get to B1 or higher German before starting the course. There are many inexpensive programmes in Germany to help you do that, which the DAAD can tell you about, and in Austria.

PS I would suggest that, because the European MBA is only one year, that it would be worth taking at least a semester and ideally a whole year to master the language and assimilate the culture a little before starting the MBA. And the better outcomes at HSG make that an excellent investment. If they offer you a place they can see a good opportunity for you (In comparison, HSG turned me down even though I was accepted at LBS, RSM, ESADE etc).
