WHU for a job in private equity in Germany


Jcad

Good afternoon, 
Currently working in FP&A in a big corporation in Germany, I want to switch for a career in private equity.
I already hold a master in management and the CGMA charter.
My plan for the switch is to combine WHU strong network in Germany with potentially CAIA, a lot of networking and to keep my German at a decent level (I am French and speak fluently German (around C1)).
Even though the whole package makes sense, I cannot stop thinking about higher ranked MBA. Considering that my end goal is to work in Germany, how would WHU compare to IMD, HEC, Bocconi, IE and other top MBAs ?
 Thank you so much for your help 1f642Jérémy

It doesn't make a *huge* amount of sense. WHU is certainly the best of the schools you mention for your goal. However, the leading MBA networks for PE in Germany are Harvard, Insead and IESE.
