Hey guys,

I am planning to do a 1 yr MBA and I have a strong background in the manufacturing industry. What schools do you think would be a good fit for me.

If you want to stay in manufacturing, it looks like Warwick is a pretty solid bet:

"Depending on the year, about 1 in 5 Warwick MBA grads tend to go into manufacturing jobs."

However, depending on what roles you are looking to get after your MBA, perhaps something with strong operations or supply chain placements or curriculum might be more effective. If you want to change industries, that would be another conversation entirely.

Usually, the best advice is to do the best MBA you can get into.

Thank you guys for the feedback. How good is the job opportunity for international students.

I am also applying to Germany and have completed 2 levels of German.

How would you compare the job prospects

I'd look at the placement reports. They are pretty good guidance. German language skills are key.

Which MBA programs in Germany are you applying to? HHL might be a good choice if you're looking to stay in manufacturing, but a ranked program (ESMT, Mannheim) might give you more options and better salary growth after graduation. You are going to want to improve your German level and try to work on your accent for the best results.
