Hi raarun,
Well I am not sure what are you looking for, but I hope you can find the best school for you. Keep us updated wheter you apply to Mannheim or not :)

Hi kunaljubce,
Yes, raarun's suggestion is the best answer that we can give. If I need to add several suggestion, give your motivation to do an MBA and your career goals when you ask Mrs. Gabriele Silver for your suitability.
Regarding the TOEFL, Yes. English Proficiency test is mandatory unless for candidates from several countries.

Hi All,
Congrats to the admits!
I have appeared for both the interviews and I've been notfied that due to a high load of applications currently, the adcom is not able to make up their mind and have put me on a waitlist. So, I'm hoping for the best.
I'm 24 years old and I have a Bachelor's Degree in Mechanical Engineering and I have three years of experience as a Process Engineer in a French Automotive Manufacturing Company based in India. I have completed a few long term international assignments In France, Germany, Thailand, China and South America. I scored 730 on the GMAT.
It would be really helpful, if some of the applicants/admits share their insight as to why they would like to go to Mannheim.
-I understand the School boasts of Good value and a high rate of employment ( owing to the strong economy of Baden Wuttenberg).

Apart from that what are your respective strategies for reaching a B1/B2 level of German before the end of course?
Are there any applicants looking to switch their industry to consulting? As I percieve, top consulting firms do not have MBS as a target school, and consulting in Germany would require atleast C1/C2 level? I would evaluate it to be a good destination for having a productive career in one of the Manufacturing HeavyWeights of Germany!
Your thoughts please!!

Hello ayushsood24,

I am sorry that you have been waitlisted by the school. Looking at your GMAT score, probably you are way above the school average GMAT score. You are also have a good career and impressive international experience although your WE is only 3 years.

For me, I think Mannheim is the best fit for my post MBA career goals. I am a mining-metallurgical engineer and Germany is the one of the best country for manufacturing career in EU.

For German, it is nearly impossible to achieve B2 by the end of your study if you have no prior knowledge. The course load is demanding and you'll have little to no time to learn German during most of your study period. Early admitted students with no German knowledge have taken intensive course in their home country right after they are admitted (including me) and we sacrifice a lot of our free time to learn the language. But all and all, it is depending on your ability to learn because I know a friend that can reach C1 level in just a year, but that is very rare.

And yes, if you are looking for consulting jobs. MBB is not recruit from Mannheim. If you have done the interview, you should know why. There are alumni who is working at consulting, but not at MBB. And they are Germans.I have no idea on big 3 auto (VW Daimler and BMW) but if you look at the career report, in the last 3 years no alumni from Mannheim works there.

If you have anymore question I will be happy to help.

Cheers,

Your thoughts please!!


Hi mate,

Let me try to share with you my experience, some thoughts and answer your questions.

First of all, why do you want to study in Mannheim business school? If your goal is to find employment in Germany post the MBA, consider as well HHL.

Now, your GMAT score is impressive and it is unfortunate you got into the waiting list. If you have posted your goal from the MBA is to work in manufacturing or pure automative engineering, then this can be one of the reasons why you got into the waiting list, in my humble opinion. The German manufacturing and engineering industry is very traditional and prefer the typical academic path, master degree in engineering post the B.Sc. MBA in gaining importance in Germany, but the economy is still quite traditional. I think being an Indian put you in tougher competition than useful.

Now coming to your point on why Mannheim. I chose Mannheim because I want to work in Germany post graduation as Germany is my home now. Mannheim is number 1 and in the country and is under a university. Germans are proud of their university, and they should, and therefore having such a degree from a university is a plus. I am working in sales and marketing in FMCG and want to continue doing so and I think Mannheim can help me progressing. I have 10 years of experience and MBS's class is a bit older than the rest and thats a plus in my case. However, I applied to HHL too (these are the only schools I applied to) and got accepted as well. I loved the personal relation in HHL. It was tough for me to choose one of them. I would recommend you to talk with HHL as they might position you better than Mannheim.

To work in Germany, you need fluent German. Yes there are some opportunities in English, but without German your chances in landing a good job are not as good, especially if your job involves communicating with the external world in Germany. You need B2/C1 as long as you speak fluently. Consulting is no exception. I don't thing there is a role when it comes to the big consulting firms. Yes MBS is not HBS, LBS or INSEAD but I don't think they will hesitate to hire from MBS is they find the right candidate. I think you could or can ask this question to the career service in MBS.

Learning German is not easy, but with persistence and willingness it is feasible. To finish one level in the language you need 2 months of 4 hours a day/ 5 days a week course. If you start learning the language now, you would be able to ready A2 by the time you start the language. You can do B1 or even B2 during your MBA. Yes MBA is demanding, but you can always manage, especially if you are a social person and mingle with Germans.

Lastly, MBS graduates work across Germany and having an MBA for the MBA number 1 is definitely and advantage. Again, I still recommend you check other schools, specially HHL and ESMT.

I really hope I could answer some of your questions. If you wish any more details, please let me know.

Tahseen

Hi Tahseen,
Thanks for your inputs!
So what I percieve from your comments is that MBS gears you for a career in Germany in Sales and Marketing, FMCG etc.
Apart from that, I had specifically asked what is the working environment( in terms of language) in most German multinationals, and the answer that I got was it really depends and it ranges from totally German to a mix of both. I said I'm willing to put in the effort and will reach business proficiency ( I'm at A1 right now) but I can not thrive in a fully German language environment.
Also, I had clearly indicated my career choices as either consulting or Strategic/General Management in Manufacturing. Having spent an year there, I now realise there were no MBA's in my plant in managerial roles, only engineers (masters or bachelors) or technicians or operators. Thanks for pointing that out!
As far as my motivation goes, my goal is not to find a Job in Germany specifically, but I was perceiving MBS as a school which holds international standing as a brand and will help me enhance my career in India ( by giving me a leg-up while applying to German manufacturing companies in India) or any other international job market (eg. Dubai etc.). ( I had asked this question in the interview too).
Thanks for your insight it was really helpful in clearing my head!

Hey again,

For me, yes I think MBS will help in finding a job in sales, marketing or general management. I have links to Germany so maybe that helped the admission to accept me.

Yes MBS is nice and having a MBA from Germany number 1 school will give you an advantage in India and Dubai. Anyways, you are still young and still early in your career.

If I were in your shoes, I would give myself a couple of years more and then apply to LBS. With your GMAT and a bit more experience and extracurriculars, you would appeal to LBS. If you get a MBA from LBS, you can get an amazing job in Dubai. This is just a thought.

Anyways, I really hope that finally MBS makes the right decision and admit you, then I would have the chance to meet you in person.

Fingers crossed for you and please do let know if you need any info or if you have any question you think I can help with.

Hello Everybody,

Congratulations to those who have got admits so far. Best of luck.

Got a wait list intimation today. Any idea on the chances of conversion from wait list? Those of you who have got admits and have formed Wattsapp/FB groups can you give us any idea in terms of the total number of people admitted so far? Then we can at least guess how many seats are left to be filled. If I am not wrong MBS has a strength of 60-65.

Thanks in advance.

Hello GMAT20162017,
Unfortunately, I have no idea on waitlist conversion. In our groups there are only less than 10 people. But maybe there are people who are admitted but have not join our group. However, we can confirm that the admits only have 2 weeks (in my case) to decide whether they will matriculate or not. So, just keep in contact with the admission office. And yes, you are right. Class in MBS would have 60 students in total.

Wish you good luck for your application.
