Help to choose already accepted low-cost MBAs in Spain and Germany
Thu Mar 29, 2012 07:19 AM
Hi fellows.

I've been accepted in the following MBA Programs:

- Germany:
MBA in International Business Consulting, University of Applied Sciences Offenburg (www.mba-ibc.com/)
- Spain:
San Pablo CEU (www.en.ceu.es)
EUDE (www.eude.es)

I chose them because their cost is affordable for me. All of them are B-Tier programs. Offenburg is accredited with FIBAA.

I'm planning to apply for MBA at UC3M (www.uc3m.es/mba), that is affordable too and has AMBA accreditation, but it's application process is more complicated and takes more time, so probably I'll have to decide for one of the first 3 programs in order to get benefit from a latin-american scholarship.

My dilemma is: Should I wait for UC3M? Or should I pay the fees for one of the first 3 options? If so, which one should you choose?

Thanks for your support.

Offenberg is the better but FIBAA means nothing outside the German speaking world. Get into the best school you can.

Duncan, thanks for your reply.

So UC3M is still my best shot? Would you take the risk and apply for it?

I would try to get into a better school, and would consider borrowing. The CEU in Budapest is inexpensive and perhaps has better work prospects.

Generally, I'd agree with what Duncan is saying. UC3M is the best of all those schools you listed, simply because it's AMBA-accredited. If you can get into that one, go for it.

Like Duncan said, CEU in Budapest is a good, inexpensive program - but are you looking for something outside of Spain and Germany?

But yeah, if you can scrape together more funding through loans or other means, you'll have a better selection. There are some really great, relatively low-cost programs in Germany, for instance: Manheim, HHL Leipzig, ESMT, etc.

Duncan, thanks for your reply.

Hi 'benoror',
Even I have selected Offenburg-ibc as one of my prospective schools for this intake. Have you decided to join this school if yes then please give more information.

thanks.
