Response regarding your questions:
1. Letter of motivation (professional and personal reasons for wanting to participate in the Mannheim MBA program; one page only)
2. In your opinion, what differentiates us from other programs?

for Question 1 - you will have to list your motivation to do MBA and then why Mannheim (how will you and the school benefit from each other)
for Question 2 - you will have to draw a subtle comparison between Mannheim and other schools you think are probable fits for you, depending on your choice, industry, geography, etc.



Thanks ShrishT....
That helps a lot.

But guys it is still not clear whether TOEFL or IELTS is mandatory.

Can this requirement be waived off if I have an undergrad degree in english?

As per the University, TOFEL score is not required if your under grad degree is in English.
But for VISA application, you need to submit TOFEL/IELTS scores.

So it's mandatory to take TOFEL/IELTS too.

Hope it helped.
Thanks,
Ankit Kaushik


Ohh ho!!!

I guess I have to put my head down for TOEFL then :| :hurt:

Hi,

It seems there are many Indians who have applied this time. What's your profile?
Are you done with the case study interview as well?

On top of that I genuinely felt I had a very good interview. I showed that I did a lot of research on the school, Germany etc.

They have clearly told me this year they got an unprecedented number of Indian applications.

roy26: Would it be possible to share your thoughts if someone has over 10 years of experience, with a sub-600 or 600 GMAT score.

What are the conversion chances based on your experience? Also, I would glad to know if you could help me understand, what are the factors that you think would have contributed towards converting the school's decision in your favour? I can imagine it could be such a devastating stage, but given the numerous applications from Indians, the B-school gets too spoilt for choices besides they always may have an alternate to limit the admits per country/per region based, just to improve their diversity quotient. Let me know your thoughts on this.

Regards,
Anubhav

Hi Anubhav,

I really hate to disclose it to you but you stand next to zero chances unless your work ex is something radically different from the general technology conulsting/project management etc.
I personally believed that I had a fantastic interview, quite well researched and clear focus on my future goals. I observed Gaby shaking her head in agreement to so many points that I had to say during the interview. My video presentation was decent if not great. I was really hopeful for a convert at Mannheim.

I personal believe Mannheim is now the go-to destination for European B school applicants, so for Indians they're looking at someone with 720+ GMAT irrespective of the work ex.
Or, otherwise a stellar work ex deviant from technology/telecom sectors. But again, if you surely believe you can bring something unique to the table there's no harm in trying.
But they're probably going with the ones with the highest GMAT score this time around.

Hey guys, one question about this program. What do you think about it in terms of career services? I asked them to contact me with some alumni and their response was: search in linkedin. I think that this is the first time that I've received that kind of answer and if that is their willingness just to contact me with someone, what can you expect from their career services?

Let me know your thoughts,
FM


Hello fermar84. Career Services has been good to our batch so far. I can think of three reasons Jens might not have given you direct alumns.

1. Alumns would not appreciate having several emails from hundreds of applicants every year. Even for current participants, we have to have an industry and a company in mind before they contact members of the alumni asking if it would be fine if someone from the current batch would contact them. They are (as what program management and career development say) very busy people with big titles after all.

2. In a business point of view, you aren't really clients of the uni yet. They're a small team of three trying to find companies to present, development programs to match the current cohort, and checking all 54 CVs we have at the moment. And again, there will be hundreds of applicants. Career services simply cannot accommodate to your request, sorry to say (HEC and ESADE weren't that helpful too, if I remember correctly).

3. Germans want to see you do your part - at least MBS does. They want you to do your research, your own initiatives, etc. And really, it's gonna prepare you the next year - ambiguity.

Once you get to Mannheim, you'll appreciate Career Development more. They are supportive in your entire "Job Project" journey, from CVs, cover letters, interview mock-ups. You'll have to find the programs/jobs you want to apply to (they won't say which ones are for you), but they will say if you're a good match for the program or not, how much you should expect in terms of compensation, etc. In total, I've been quite happy with CD, and allumns from the previous batches I've talked to were/are as well. Anyhow, send me a private message if you want to know more.

On a side note, I got admits from HEC and ESADE as well, and I can't tell you how much I'm loving Mannheim.

Hello, one should still apply anyway. I mean, GMAT isn't the only factor the Ad Com is looking at. I believe someone from my cohort has a 570 GMAT Score. It all really depends on how you do your interview, your essays, what you did, the company you worked for, etc. If you don't mind putting in 100 Eur and a few hours to work on your application, then you should apply to as many as you want. Never thought I'd get a single admit, yet I got all four from HEC, ESADE, Mannheim, and WHU. Just apply, I remember reading somewhere to have a reach, a safe, and a fallback school when you apply.

Stay in touch mate, and wishing you good luck.

If you speak German, go to Mannheim
If you speak French, go to HEC
If you are willing to work in Asia and learn Mandarin, go to CEIBS
I am not sure about UK, unless you have working permit, it is tough to get a job after MBA there.
