Take a look at www.find-mba.com/board/27248 and Do you need to speak the local language? www.find-mba.com/board/34713

PS B2.2 is pretty good. Have you taken the DSH? If you could take a bilingual MSc programme at a traditional university, rather than an MBA at a weak Fachhochschule, this might make you more credible. Of course the strong FH are great, and an MBA means more in India.

As you said, If you have good command on German , HTW is better choice. I speak german (not fluently of course). But i would definitely improve the german skills. So can i apply for that ?

If you goal is to work in Germany then there are few things you can do better than this:
- Learn German to a business standard before you go there
- Study a business function, rather than general management, in German at one of the top schools for career success www.wiwo.de/erfolg/campus-mba/uni-ranking-das-sind-deutschla… (RWTH, Mannheim, KIT, TUM, LMU, Cologne, TU Darmstadt, Münster, TU Dresden, TU Ilmenau, Frankfurt etc...)

I realise it's easier for you to study in English. There's student demand for that, but German employers will really want to hire people who speak German.

PS With your current GMAT you won't be able to get into a top MBA programme. So get into the best programme you can, and focus on improving your German.

Or, improve your GMAT - 600+ would add a lot of options.
