Where? Berlin and/or online
When? You can choose to start your language course as early as July and continue until December, before the MBA start in January. The majority of students however attend the course from October to December. The course continues during the MBA (optional, at no additional cost) and following your MBA (optional, at additional cost).
For international students moving to Germany, and considering establishing their career in the country, learning German is encouraged. ESMT offers the opportunity of intensive German language courses before the MBA program begins, in coordination with GLS (German Language School Berlin). Additionally, all enrolled students will have access, for one year, to Babbel, our online language learning partner.
If you plan to enroll in these language courses, you are encouraged to submit your completed MBA application by the early July deadline. Applications received after this deadline may be accepted after consultation with the Admissions Office. The cost of a standard language course (20 lessons/week) at GLS depends on several factors such as duration of the course, and if you book an early bird offer. For more specific and up-to-date information and rates, please contact the Admissions Office.
