I hold a BSc in Business Admin. from the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich in Germany. the program is top3 for UG in business and the university itself overall is always #1 german university in the world.
Also, I have a MSc in Management from Nova School of Business and Econ. from Lisbon, Portugal. The school is considered the best BS in portugal and the master itself is top40 in the FT MSc ranking.
Do you have to mentions those facts, or can you expect that Adcom knows about lesser known schools (in comparison the the big french and UK schools)?!
Thanks a lot
The schools have an idea often about schools in other countries, but they don't always know or remember, so it is best that you EXPLICITLY remind them. (A good place is in your resume, you make a line under the school name which says "Germany's top-ranked university" or something like that)
