MBA in Germany


SV

Dear all,

I am looking out for an MBA degree in Germany. Any suggestions as to which university is better option. I am looking out for a one year course into international management or strategic management.

How about International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef, Bonn? I am applying for Masters in Leadership & Management. Is this university a good option?

Kindly suggest.

Thanks in advance!

IUBH is not the best choice. Either go to a top MBA (WHU, ESMT, HHL, Mannheim) or take an MSc taught in German at an elite university.

Thanks Duncan, how about MBA in Global Management from University of Applied Sciences Bremen the IGC? I have applied there as well. What is the scope post completion of this course from Hochschule Bremen?

I can only agree with what Duncan said. Go for the better known MBA-programs (the ones he stated, and nothing else) or do a M.Sc..

What might also work (if you are 100% committed to the MBA degree), do the MBA in another country and then apply in Germany afterwards.

Actually the deadline might have already passed for MBA programs in other countries. Moreover the schools mentioned by duncan are over my budget plus duration is of 2 years.
My criteria are Masters degree of 1 year starting this year. I know am asking quite late for this year's admission but even if courses starts in January 2018 are still fine with me.

What I want to know is, this MBA in Global Management is not worth it, is it or no job opportunities post completion of this course? If so, what are other universities in Germany wherein applications are still acceptable? This university is listed on DAAD website so thought it would be recognized.

The DAAD is not the one who employs you afterwards, it's the employers.

We Germans are not particularly familiar with the MBA as a degree, so that needs Explanation, even in HR departments. Going to a school that no-one knows on top of that is a bit too much which is why I'd recommend to wait a year and go for a M.Sc. / Master in Management from a well-known German University (go for the public ones, they are free and just as good) or do your MBA at a school with a powerful brand.

I heard about the Master of Management programme in University of Mannheim which is taught in English. Do you think this programme will suit a 28-years old with 5 years of working experience? (As in Germany I think most of the Master of Management students are below 25 years old of age).

Every degree is listed on the DAAD website, even those below average. Mannheim is much better but German language skills are key.

Read my comment above.

If MBA in Germany, choose a well-known school. Coburg obviously isn't, most Germans probably wouldn't even know where that's located on a map...

Without knowing about your goals (what do you want to do with a degree like this) and your background (especially your level of German proficiency if you want to work in the country), it's sort of an impossible question to ask. Of course, some employers will know about each individual school, but depending on your industry preference, it's not possible to say which one is the best.
