Obviously one cannot learn German more than half way between now and the next start date of these degrees. And you won't improve your German while studying in English with other foreigners.

Maybe a one year DSH course followed by an MSc taught in German? To lead people, you need to be able to speak to them.

Do you think I can get into ESMT with a 660 GMAT? I can speak basic German.

The average GMAT score there is 640, so assuming you are in the ballpark for the other factors, then a 660 is a good score. (That's assuming you have around 7 years of work experience, which is what the average there is at the moment).

Frankfurt is strongest for finance. ESMT seems rather far from the big engineering centres along the Rhine. I would focus on Mannheim and WHU.

Partly this depends on the quality and length of your work experience.
- The best programmes will require solid and senior managerial experience: IESE in Munich; ESCP and ESMT in Berlin and WHU in Duesseldorf.
- Under them, some solid programmes might be a better fit: Mannheim, the Frankfurt School, the Cologne-Rotterdam Executive MBA. Personally, I think Köln and Mannheim stand out as top state universities with strong law schools: German lawyers train mostly at state universities, after all.
You can read more about them at http://rankings.ft.com/businessschoolrankings/executive-mba-ranking-2019

Below these executive programmes, there are part-time MBAs run by some of these schools, and also by HHL which are easier to get into without management experience.
