Maybe have a look at EBS MBA that has very strong ties to the Finance industry in Frankfurt

or alternatively at St. Gallen MBA that should be very well respected in Germany as well. Look for the GMC discussion

WHU -- Otto Beisheim? Anyone know anything about it? Saw that London Business School has an exchange with them.

Thanks!

I'm also trying to get a sense as to one's work opportunities in Germany post-MBA. I will get into some top schools here in the US, but I might very well choose to work in Germany post-MBA. If that's the case, I might be better served by a German b-school. Cheaper, quicker, and I'd get to whip my already good German skills back into shape before entering the job market. I just don't know what the recruiting process there is like and if one can really use an MBA to land a job.

If you can get into a top 10 US program then I would not bother with German b-schools. Your alumni network will be way better globally (maybe even in Germany) and many companies in Germany, especially consultancies and banks, will value a top MBA from the US more than any MBA from Germany.

You can always go on exchange to a German MBA program and then recruit locally.

The best accredited schools in Germany are:

Mannheim Business School (Triple accreditation: AACSB, EQUIS and AMBA)
min. GMAT score of 600
Stage 1 application by: December 31
Stage 2 application by: April 30
Stage 3 application by: June 30

* Complete applications by December 31 (stage 1) will result in a reduction of tuition fees by 2,000 €
** Complete applications by April 30 (stage 2) will result in a reduction of tuition fees by 1,000 €

WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management (Equis accredited, application for AACSB accreditation).
This is the school from which most German internet entrepreneurs graduate from (for example: Zalando, Citydeal etc)
GMAT minimum of 600
The program starts March first every year. Applications are possible during the whole year. As applications are reviewed and evaluated on a rolling basis and seats are limited, candidates are encouraged to apply as early as possible.

HHL - Leipzig Graduate School of Management (AACSB accredited):
GMAT minimum 550 - the average is 610
application deadline: non EU citizens - April 1st, EU citizens July 1st

If you include German speaking Switzerland, I would also have a look at St. Gallen.
Best of luck

I've just been accepted into the evening MBA program at the University of San Diego, and they offer a dual degree program with WHU - Otto Beisheim that I'm interested in pursuing. (Complete 30 of the required 53 credits at USD, and the remainder at WHU type of deal.) I have a strong inclination to work in Europe--particularly in a German-speaking area--after graduation, and I figure that doing so armed with an MBA from a US school and a MSc in Management from an German one will be one hell of a foot in the door.

For awhile, I really wanted to go to St. Gallen, which you might want to consider if you're looking to be in a German speaking area. Very reputable school and the Swiss government just amended their immigration by-laws a few months ago, making study for non-Swiss/non-EU students very attractive. (Basically, they give you several months' grace period to stay after graduation to find a job, and Swiss employers no longer have to go through the process of proving that there isn't an equally qualified Swiss or EU candidate before they hire you.)
