For all non-US citizens, who plan to do an MBA in
the US and stay afterwards there, this article
by The Wall Street Journal should be interesting.
Is there something wrong
with German Business Education?
MBA programs in Germany, Switzerland and Austria
have a number of advantages compared to their US counterparts (even so they can not
compete in reputation with top US programs):
- Average quality of German universities is good
- The tuition fees are considerable lower (some
are even for free) - on average EUR 13,000.
- The costs of living (e.g. in East Germany, not
in Switzerland) are significantly lower.
- Programs in English (51 MBA programs are
taught 100% in English) and German are available.
You will have the chance to learn/improve your German.
- Some programs have a very international
profile even by European standards which tend to be more international than
US programs (e.g. non-German students: SIMT 90%,
Leipzig Graduate School of Management 70%).
- Many programs take less than 2 years to
- About 200
MBA programs at your choice (141 in Germany alone)
- German (exports are equivalent to about 40%
of German GDP) and Swiss companies are very active in
exporting and have in many countries subsidiaries, therefore many job
opportunities abroad exist.
- Germany, Switzerland and Austria have an aging population and will
have to employ more foreigners in the future. As Germany has a high jobless
rate, it is however currently difficult to find a job as a foreigner. EU citizens have automatically a work permit for
Germany and Austria.
