ESB REUTLINGEN OR HOCHSCHULE BREMEN/NOVANCIA MBA


i am considering an mba in either the ESB hochshule reutlingen or alternatively hochshule bremen.
these two schools are the cheapest i can afford.
hochschule bremen provides the opportunity of a double degree from novancia business school in paris or UNCW in North carolina.
ESB Reutlingen offers mba international management.
Which of these two program do you think would be better for getting a job in Germany.?
I live there and my german fluency is b2 standard,looking forward to attain near business fluency in 1 year,
Thanks for your response.

I would rate ESB over Hochschule Bremen.

ESB Reutlingen has a good reputation in Germany.
Nevertheless, language will be more important for job search.

Yes, Reutlingen absolutely. UNCW is not bad for finance, nor Novancia for international trade, but neither have good placement in Germany.

Also look at Pforzheim and Esslingen.

Thanks for your response.
At Novancia,I was looking at MSc business consulting coupled with a MBA specialisation in International logistics from Bremen.(or MBA UNCW Coupled with the Bremen MBA(international logistics specialisation.)
I had imagined that was going to be marketable to potential employers in Germany and maybe switzerland or the UK as opposed to ESB Reutlingen MBA in International Management with no specific specialisation route.
what is your take on that?
Thanks for your time,I appreciate it a lot.

I Included Bremen because of its dual degree option and due to the fact that there seem to be a relative boom in the logistic sector of germanys economy.
since it is not so reputable,i will probably just focus on ESB reutlingen.
My qualms with ESB Reutlingen is that it is purely general management oriented with no specific specialisation route,and most general management positions in Germany tend to be offered to Germans.
Any idea if the ESB Reutlingen MBA can land a consulting job?
Is it reputable outside the DACH region?
Thanks a great deal,I appreciate your time.

You will find this approach useful: How to use LinkedIn to find the best school www.find-mba.com/board/33571

I don't think formal specialisations matter that much outside India. See Specialisations often don't matter http://bit.ly/speMBA

I am sure some ESM alumni are in consulting (again, see LinkedIn) but of course the top consulting firms will hire elsewhere. I don't think ESB is well known outside DACH.

thanks for your insightful response so far.
I have actually streamlined my 2 choices to Esb Reutlingen and pforzheim Mba.
on paper,pforzheim seem to be more well structured as i have compared the modules and talked to a few personel.
But most people in Germany are of the opinion that ESB reutlingen is more reputable in Germany (rep and job wise post mba),even though it does not have AACSB accreditation.
Whats your opinion on the Mba from these two schools?
Thanks for your time,I truly appreciate it.

Yes, I think ESB Reutlingen does have a better reputation. It's a large, full-service business school with a very wide range of German-language programmes. If you were studying in German, then ESB is the obvious choice.

However, when we compare those two MBA programmes then Pforzheim has a much better offer with more demanding admissions requirements: it's a longer programme, with three or four semesters of German-language training. You can use LinkedIn to compare the MBA alumni's outcomes.
