bisheshnaik,

It's vital to apply and secure your seats even if one is aiming for German B-schools because of the following reasons -
    1) Usually, the sessions start from fall - along the months of Sept, Oct or Jan 2021( for ESMT Berlin).
    We have about 6 months - I am hopeful that by then we would be in a place to better handle such issues of the pandemic or at least mitigate it.

    2) The next upcoming batch of 2021 would see a higher surge in applicants since they chose to either defer their admissions or not apply.
    Thus, getting an admit for a seat for the 2021 batch would be tremendously tricky.

    3) Historically, during the aftermath of the pandemic, there is a sudden dearth of meaningful jobs as the economy is trying to dampen and overcome the repercussions of the global pandemic. Thus, completing your masters would seem a better idea than to hunt for the job in the frugal market.
    This point can swing in both directions as we do not know how long would it take for the economy to stabilise.

bisheshnaik, your concern is legitimate.
Thus, do connect with the Admission committees and check what their views are.

I am sure this issue requires a holistic understanding to take a judgement call in this time of crisis. :)
Keep us posted!

Stay indoors and safe.

Hi bisheshnaik
I'm applying for German B schools for Autumn 2020 intake. It seems to me that it's wiser to do it this year than next year, and XyLan has shared a number of reasons. For me, the worst case will be having the 1st semester conducted online. Hopefully the situation will get better in the next 2/3 months.
But as long as I receive an offer, I'll go for it no matter what.

How's your application going? What are your target schools?

I have accepted an offer from WHU for Sept intake. Not sure if I can be there in time though because at the moment the German embassy in my country is still not accepting visa applications almost completely until further notice. These uncertainties are giving me anxiety :(

Hey everyone!

I accepted my admit from HHL Leipzig, Germany in April. Just last week, the school updated us that they have pushed the start date to January 2021.
Though I was upset that the wait to start the MBA will be longer , I am really glad that the school heard us students and delayed the start. This just shows the school’s value system. I could not have picked a better school.
The adcom also conducted zoom sessions and took many questions from us. They have stated that if the situation doesn’t improve then, they may delay it further to March/April. In any case, we will know 4 months in advance so that we can leave our jobs accordingly. Also, The school will provide German courses and Pre-MBA courses on MS Office online starting September.


Even, Mannheim B school Is delaying the start Of their MBA program to January. This info can be found on their website.

You don’t need to be so rude Bisheshnaik alright. I just wanted to share my insights because most schools are starting online. If you don’t like it, that’s just too bad.

And if you didn’t want people to say what they felt, you shouldn’t have started the thread.

Shrinkhla21 I am sorry if I offended you or was a bit too harsh...the statement you made comparing your school with others, which are actually better was something which I didnt like...I am sorry once again..I am happy for you that you took HHL... but you should not compare and indirectly say that your school was the only one which did take appropriate actions and so on...everyone knows.. about all the B schools and Mannheim is one of the best schools in the country.

You know I received admits from multiple schools even Frankfurt school ( the one you really like). I got into my dream college Babson, USA. But none of them is delaying the start date. Only HHL did that. So obviously i will be relieved about it right.

I have fought for this for a long time now. But you cannot directly understand the struggles a person is going through for joining MBA. ( again, not saying that graduates are having it easier). Just everyone is at a different stage.

I did not intend to demean any school in any way nor intend to show my school superior. I just showed my happiness and you simply choose to dislike that. Also, i praised Mannheim for the same reason.

Apparently, I had to point it out for you.

Shrinkhla21 :) .sorry...maybe I misunderstood...I somehow missed your last line and I thought you are not happy with Manheim. I am sorry...I thought otherwise..and was defending Manheim ... I somehow read it wrong..my apologies. anyways..having said that ...you should not leave your dream school just because some other school is delaying the start. ...I mean doesn't make sense. I talk to a lot of current and prospective students ...and the so-called b schools have provided a hybrid model of education or are still discussing delaying the course...depending upon the situation...but Shrinkhla21 debate and arguments aside...if you really got into other good schools...just bcoz HHL is delaying a bit should not be a criterion to take up. I know they give good scholarship and if finance is a concern ..then sure.. but if you have based your selection just on the starting dates...seriously not a good move....and please don't take it negatively ..... There is a high probability that you may get a job...but from a location and brand prospective the location Leipzig is not that good ... no bad intentions here...and once again sorry if I have hurt you...

Shrinkhla21 having said that...I am sorry once again..and as you have taken admission in HHL ....apart from the place... the college is a cradle for startups and entrepreneurship ...so maybe I did upset a future entrepreneur ..so please forgive me ....and genuinely speaking ...if you need any help ...don't hesitate to approach me... I won't be rude...I promise. :)

That’s alright.
There is another reason to drop Babson and like you mentioned, it is the tuition fee and living expenses.
Since, we were talking about the delay start, that’s the only thing I pointed out.

Any specific reason as to why not the other european B schools and particularly HHL...was that also because of tuition and living expenses?
