Is there an applicants forum for MMM Mannheim as well? Because I think there are many applicants here but there are only forums for MBA programs where you can compare previous year’s applicants admission points and stuff :/

Hi all,

I've been pondering about the possibility of getting accepted to the English track of this program given my profile. Hence, if anyone could provide me with insights, I would be much obliged!

Bachelor's: Senior at a Business Administration program lectured in English at one of the most established universities in Turkey.

CGPA: 3.86/4.00

Internship: 1-month Assurance internship at KPMG.

GMAT: 640 (Q48, V30); AWA: 5.5; IR: 7 (Screwed up the exam, especially the Verbal section, due to sickness)

Study Abroad: 6 months of Erasmus at a Hochschule in Germany + Summer School in Finance at the LSE

Additional: Volunteered in a municipal project for the elderly for one semester; Student representative for the department; CFA Challenge national finalist

Any thoughts on how my application to the English track would fare?

Thanks a lot!

You have a good profile. However GMAT might be an issue. 650 would have been safe. But nonetheless, you should try for it.
Just a quick question. Why don't you go for MFin?

I assume the probability of me getting accepted falls short of +75%, so I would rather retake the exam since my scores on Official GMAT Prep Tests ranged from 700 to 740.

To answer your question, although I would like to get involved with finance as much as possible, I failed to find an English-instructed MSc in Finance in Germany. Given all English programs in Business, I hope to enroll in Mannheim's MMM since it provides several courses on Banking and Finance, as well as a few courses on Risk.

Frankly, I didn't think the names of degrees would matter until you pointed it out. Would M.Sc. in Management or in Finance differ from one another that much if one can take quant/fin/econ courses in the former?

Are you only targeting universities in Germany? Frankfurt school of finance and management offers a program for Mfin with English as the language of instruction.

I was just suggesting because you have quite some experience in finance and it would make much sense for you to go for MFin. You mostly get entry level positions after MiM. Even I want to work in finance but I have a background in engineering. I am mostly interested in applying to specialized masters in management programs but there are only a few colleges that offer. Although you can take up electives, but you won't be studying all the subjects in finance. You'll have to pick a few of them. Plus I think MFin will attract more job opportunities and you will get core profiles.

You got it right that I only target German universities. I will also dig deeper into MFin programs from now on; thanks for helping me think it through. Indeed you have a point there regarding courses in management programs and finance programs. Surely delving deeper into financial theory in a finance program would equip one better for a finance position.

As for your engineering background, I am sure you would be quick to pick up finance in either management or finance program due to its embeddedness in the quantitative foundations. Would love to disscuss schools further with you in application periods, too. Good luck in advance! :)

Thanks for your kind words and the encouragement. You should definitely take a look at French schools. ESCP and ESSEC are really amazing for MFin. And you can also go for London, since you have some experience over there as well. But nobody knows how it's gonna be like post Brexit. But a degree from top schools in the UK is revered all across the world and the prospects of getting a good profile increases :)
