Admitted to ESMT & Mannheim - What is the better choice?


ozeekay

Hi,

I got an admission in the FULL TIME MBA of ESMT Berlin & Mannheim Business School. I come from a background of financial services of over 8+ years and have mainly been in risk management. I am a German National with minimal command over the language since I have lived abroad for 95% of my life. Now, however, I want to pivot my career for the short-mid term into consulting/strategy and as an alternate stick to Banking and financial services, and in the long term venture out into the fintech space and explore disruptive entrepreneurial ventures. I do intend to focus a lot on the German Language and gain proficiency during the MBA course.

Any guidance as to which school to go for in terms of employability prospects, a better support network and most importantly what aligns better to my long term goal.

Thankyou in advance

For most students, a year of language learning during full-time studies in English is not enough to bridge the gap between minimal language skills and what you'd need to be proficient on the job market.

Maybe you'd have an edge given your previous exposure to the language and potential family ties, but just know that the German job market is notably difficult for those without perfect command of the language.
