WHU vs HHL for experienced professional with engineering background


koolmrsam
Hi,

I have engineering background with 15yrs of experience in Germany and recently developed interest in studying MBA. I have been accepted by both HHL and WHU part time program.

Have read different post about HHL vs WHU but still like to ask which of the two would be suitable for professional with several years of experience. I would prefer WHU because it’s close to where I live but not sure of other aspects.

Thanks!

I think this really depends on your goals and your educational needs.
- Cohort. WHU has a younger, more international cohort. The HHL cohort seems much more experienced.
- General vs specialized. The WHU degree seems focussed on general management, and seem to have less scope for doing deeply int one area. HHL has a clear choice: 3 of 7 of elective 'extensions' and access to exchange programmes and dual degree options. I took my MBA part-time, and really appreciated the chance to take a term full time at Dartmouth College, HHL's exchange school in the Ivy League.
- Corporate vs. entrepreneurial. HHL is famous for entrepreneurship; WHU has a stronger corporate reputation.

In terms of international reputation for these schools' MBA programs, WHU seems to have the edge, given that it's been ranked in the FT for the past two years. It currently has the best salary outcome of all the ranked Germany programs.
