If you want to establish your career in Germany – particularly outside of Berlin - learning German is strongly advised. There are multiple ways in which sie können Ihr Deutsch verbessern (you can improve your German).
In coordination with GLS (German Language School Berlin), take intensive German language courses before the MBA program begins.
Your student visa allows you to come to Germany up to six months before the MBA program starts so you could start German lessons from July. Most students, however, attend from October to December.
To enroll in a German course, the latest we recommend you submit your MBA application is by round 4 if you are coming from outside the EU (29 June), or round 5 if you are coming from an EU country (17 August). Costs for the course will vary but, as an ESMT student, you will receive a discounted rate. For more specific and up-to-date information and rates, please contact the Admissions Office.
During your MBA
Continue your language learning while you study, all of which are offered at no additional costs to you:
- Foundation: from April to July, take part in German language evening classes
- Summer term: choose the 6-week intensive Sommer-Sprachschule
- Electives: sign up for the Business German elective
