Anyone here planning to join EBS 2016 MBA batch ?
I got the admit but I am still considering other schools in the region. How is Hf_pforzheim?I am basically targeting Consulting industry. EBS has a strong alumni network in Germany so that's an advantage.

Only if you will be fluent in German by the time you finish. Their career service is very weak. I am in 2015 batch at EBS.

And English jobs/internships here less than %1. You can look for yourself Stepstone.de or Monster.de. For consulting definitely German fluency is needed.

Without German you won't get a half decent job from even Mannheim. I have got this feedback from a Mannheim Alumnus. BTW according to you which school has a good career service ?

It is average. Ok if you get 50% scholarship. To be honest I don't recommend either. East of Germany is full of Nazis. You should either aim high or go to cheapest reasonable option.

I guess I get your point. Thanks you so much for such honest feedback.

Np. Your German skills is much more important than your degree here. It doesn't mean anything if you can't speak. It looks like I will be in German course all summer!

Make sure your language school has air con. I did the language summer school at LMU and it was way too hot in their DKFA classrooms for this poor British boy.

Hi Onur,

Is it true that East of Germany is full of Nazis ?How do you say that ? Whom would you choose between HHL and Pforzheim ?

Hi guess Onur is referring to the NPD (which lost its seats in the 2014 elections: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saxony_state_election,_2014#Results) and to PEGIDA. Less than 5% of the vote in the region is certainly too many, but it doesn't make Leipzig full of Nazis.

it is getting bad there. Afd (Alternative fur Deutschland) which is rightest party for pegida gained seats in latest regional elections in early 2016. 2014 is so far back. Lots changed since then especially for refugee crisis. There is an article in Der spiegel about that. you can read here. http://m.spiegel.de/international/germany/a-1079062.html

I was thinking Pforzheim before to but I chose EBS for the accelerated program. If you have 2 years definitely go for it. I would stay away from east Germany at all costs. I am also shocked with how little opportunities here in English less than 1% and hundreds of competition for one job including Germans. So without German there is no life here. So far only 1 person scored an internship in our class. Rest of us keep getting rejected. I applied 30+ but not even one phone call with 10+ years experience. If I don't score anyting I will go full time German this summer and give another shot about 6-12 months.

I really like Pforzheim MBA. It has a good course and I need 2 year course to work on my German as well. But I heard Pforzheim town doesn't have good infrastructure in general. People say Leipzig is a great city to live in and it is in trade hub of Germany. So, I just wanted to clarify .

Read the article and make up your own mind with taking a chance to be attacked and highest unemployment! Pforzheim is a small place But I visited Stutgart its a nice and rich city with many industries. I'm kinda having second thoughts why I have not chosen Pforzheim but anyway it's too late. I'm done within a month..
