@[738149:GMAT_Conquer] : ANY PLANS TO JOIN GISMA/ANY OTHER GERMAN COLLEGE THIS YEAR???
4. Recruiters again is a wrong term in European context as you don't have companies coming for placements like in India. Other companies where alumni have been working are engineering, IT. I know some alumni in India worked in wipro consulting, moved to mckinsey. Many would be going towards operations. Since there are more opportunities in ops then anything else.
5. Visa for studies should be easy. as long as you have complete documentation. You can extend resident permit for 18 months after studies by showing funds to search for jobs and learn German.
I understand the role of Career Fairs and Networking .
But the role of School facilitated Career Services,especially for International students(who dont speak German) is also important.
How proactive/supportive has the Career Services team been?
GISMA has been around for many many years now i must say, if my memory serves me right, it started in 1999. I would say in Lower Saxony (the state in which Hannover is located), GISMA has strong roots. Amongst all the major MBA schools in Germany, GISMA would be coming in top 3-4 as i see. Mannheim is a different beast altogether, it has a different industrial environment around it, its brand I would say stronger at the moment than GISMA. WHU is a good school too. ESMT i wouldn't rate that high.
See in Europe as I have seen you don't have concepts of placements. You get job postings, go to career fairs and network your way to find a job. Placement is an Indian term i must say:) Unfortunately don't have stats of % of international placements, though as I said without german its difficult to break the market here locally!
