Hello, all.

Im posting to ask your suggestions on my application to Mannheim Master in Management (MMM), intake autumn of 2017, English Track.

My profile:

Telecommunication Engineering/Electronics
Undergraduate Score: 83/100
GMAT: 690
IELTS: 6.5
One year's exchange abroad.

I have taken 36 ECTS courses related to business admin and management, and Mannheim confirmed my eligibility to apply. But they did not give me an answer about the possibility of my enrollment. So I'd like to know your suggestions about what to improve to increase the likelihood of my enrollment. I really want to go there because of the free education and double degree program with CBS. Increasing my Undergraduate Score is not possible since I have finished all the courses in my bachelor curriculum. However, I have only taken GMAT and IELTS once and can take them again if you think it is necessary. Thank you very much for your suggestions.

Hey Lanchen,

Overall your profile look good, IELTS is a bit on the lower side, but the GMAT is pretty good so that would compensate the score by a bit.
(BTW in Mannheim GMAT is not needed, but a high score always helps)

Your CGPA looks good so that won't be an issue, for German schools the CGPA is important so you have that covered.

Coming to improving your profile: -
Mention some extracurricular activities like competitions, courses undertaken, volunteer work, achievement in sports etc.
This will help you to highlight a more holistic personality.

Next, you can focus on your application and make sure the school sees why as an engineer you are motivated to take up the MSc and why Mannheim would be the perfect place to help you get to your short term goals.

So focus on these two, taking the GMAT again is unnecessary, use that time and money to perfect your application.

Hope this helped.

If you want a more in-depth evaluation, I would need much more info on your profile and what makes you different, you can fill it up here and get your profile evaluated for free - http://www.mim-essay.com/mim-profile-evaluation/

I wonder whether anybody has knowledge about the quality of the program and future opportunities it might provide. I found a 2-page document in school's website but it doesn't say much. I couldn't find any data or detailed brochure provided by the MBS similar to those provided by private schools. Apparently private schools are way better in marketing :)

As far as what I understood from the german forums;

54 points over 60 for your GPA (I am not sure about this one, you need to calculate your german GPA. My GPA is 3.36/4 and my german GPA is 2.0 and I get 40 points for it)
12 points over 60 for your GMAT
TOEFL is irrelevant. They just assume that you know English if you have a GMAT score over 600.
2+2=4 points for your internships
22 points for your exchange

in total it should be around 92. In previous years the minumum points were around 75, so unless there is a drastic change you will be safe. Please be aware that this calculation is not an official one, and I calculated it based on what is said in student forums. Good luck!

I think overall you should have a good shot at Mannheim, your GMAT fits the Avg. of Mannheim (though a stronger core will help)
The CGPA is important, and as you have a good one, it should not be an issue.

The points for work experience depend on the places you worked for and the kind of internships you did.
Also study abroad experience always helps, so you are safe there.

So overall you have a good profile, and should have a good shot.

Will help us analyse your profile better and give you more pointers.

hi concernedcitizen
Mannheim uses a very straight-forward system. A 2.0 German GPA gets 40 points over 60, a 2.1 gets 38, a 1.9 gets 42. Also for GMAT, every 10 points over 600 in GMAT, adds 3 points. It means, if you get 600, you get 0 points. If you get 640 you get 12 points.

As far as I know, they don't care if you are an international student or not, they just ask for the exchange semester. Such scoring is really stupid from my point of view, but it is what it is.

So you would get;
36 points for your GPA
39 points for your GMAT
2 points for your internship
Total=77. It is a very risky score to wait for Mannheim to announce admissions in late June.

But again, maybe there is an exception for the international students. If you can get those points, you can reach 99, which is a very safe score. You can get the most accurate information from the school, but they generally answer very late.

IMO, you have a great GMAT score, you can consider some other schools in case they say that they will not give those 22 points. You can actually target any school in FT MiM ranking with that score. Even HEC, LBS or St. Gallen is possible. In case you consider schools only in Germany, then you can easily make it to WHU and HHL with 730.

Hi Korhand ! Thanks so much for the evaluation!
By international student I meant I've compeleted my whole undergraduate study abroad(I came from a non-EU country and did my bachelor degree in Germany). However I'm not sure if it's the same as semester abroad :(
And yes thanks for your advice with schools. My main targets are german schools so I'm trying EBS and HHL right now and will consider other Business schools in Europe.
I'm starting at a quite late phase so hope I can still catch up with everything :)
Thanks again for your help.

No problem. I understood that, but as I said I guess they accept only an Exchange/Erasmus to qualify for 22 points. But again, the school will provide the most accurate info.

As you said, it is a very late stage for 2017 intake, so best options left in Germany are HHL and EBS as you said. I am almost 100% percent sure that HHL and EBS will offer admission with that score. (avg. is 620 in HHL). Good luck!

Guys, could you please evaluate my profile?

GMAT 700
GPA 2 out of 3 (1 is minimum to pass) from one of the most prominent unis in cis region
2.5-month internship in private equity abroad + 6 months of full time job in the middle office of an investment bank
Exchange semester abroad but I took exams worth only 15 ects (and 8 of them are not relevant at all). Will it count?

I've got an attractive job offer and I need to respond in a few weeks. Uni's decision will be announced later and I'm afraid I'll not make it to the program.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Mill,

GMAT: 30 points
GPA: 30 points (doesn't matter even if you have an HBS diploma :))
WE:4 points (Again, they care only the existence and the length of the exp.)
Exc: Normally 22 points. I cannot say if they will count it, you should contact the school, better if you just call them. Keep in mind, they take calls only a few hours a week, you can find it on the website.
IMO, they will count it.

Total (if they count): 86. Looks 95% safe. Without exc, you have 64, and it is almost impossible.

PS: My comments are based on a German forum which I provided the link of above. I translated it with google translate. However, this is not an official resource, so trust it at your own risk. :)


Good luck!
