I'm no expert but I do think St. Gallen is strong in consulting BUT I don't know if German is a prerequisite for this.

trahul, that is anyone's guess and i really don't think it matters. a better assessment is to compare how st. gallen stacks up regionally against its peers (mannheim, hhl leipzig, ESMT, WHU Koblenz, etc.) over the next 5 years. so far, st. gallen appears to be in the lead.

In my opinion, the repuation of HSG St. Gallen is without its MBA programme probably the most regognized in German speaking countries and may be compared to its English counterpart LSE. Therefore you can bet that St. Gallen MBA will take the lead in the next years.

The only thing that prevents me from applying is that I am not sure if the programme (not the brand) itself has become strong enough to be compared to its English rivals (Cambridge, Oxford, Cranfield, ...).

cheers

I still haven't decided on whether I should enroll. I've applied to a couple of US schools and want to make a decision by the end of February. If I don't get an interview to Columbia or HBS by mid-February, I will probably enroll at St. Gallen. I have family in Switzerland and they all speak very highly of the University but my biggest hesitation is that I believe (and I stress that I have no insider knowledge on this) that the recruiting is mainly for the general student body and not specific to MBA's. Therefore, I believe that companies may be looking for bilingual employees which will put me at a disadvantage.

I do think that the MBA program will be well received in rankings eventually, but by the time they come out I'll be in my post-MBA career so I'm not too concerned about them.

Agree. I have this thing in my mind. Actually i thought of asking this to alumni but unfortunately I'm not able to get hold of anyone off late. Have you guys ever checked this with alumni or with the officials during the fair ?

Sorry to hear about your waitlist trahul. I have only heard back initially that I'll know any decision by the end of February.

Waitlisted?!? Stay in contact with the office. I don't know if they have a formal waitlist protocol but I think they do want people to engage them a lot. If you really want to attend and convey that to them I hope they'll come around.

Yes, i was also initially shocked to see my application on hold since they dont have a formal waitlist process. But do you guys think it is a good idea to wait till June considering I'm a non-Eu, non-German speaking ..i think my chances are less. Moreover i have offers from couple of other good schools which in all probability I will accept one of them.

What other schools are these trahul ? I'd say if you a comparable aussie school admit, go for it. No point waiting till June...

Hey all, just wanted to let everyone know I accepted St. Gallen's offer of admission and will be joining casbroker this September in Switzerland. I am very excited about the program.

What's the latest with everyone else?
