“Pforzheim’s MBA program is a great fit for me because I was looking for program with an international focus and AACSB accreditation. I appreciate the diversity of the student nationalities, student work experiences, and the business school’s course offering. It is also important to me to be connected to real-world business problems, which our professors do an excellent job incorporating their practical experiences into the classroom. Furthermore, the small class size allows for deep discussions and frequent interactions with the professors. I’ve had positive experiences with professors who coached me through career-related matters, provided additional tutoring outside of class time, and given meaningful feedback on how to improve on the next group presentations.”

I highly recommend this MBA program. Feel free to contact me for any questions.

"I have already lived and studied in Germany before, so I had the first-hand experience of the work and social culture. For me, doing the MBA in Germany was an obvious choice and doing that in one of Germany's top universities, it couldn't be better. Pforzheim MBA has a special focus on marketing and consulting, backed by the best-in-class faculty which through their professional experiences help us learn the ropes of these domains through group works, case studies and class discussions" I would always recommend this MBA program to any prospective student based on my personal satisfaction and growth."

"The MBA was and is indeed a practical and  international program, as we had 11 different cultures present. This gave me the chance to learn other cultures as we worked together as a team to solve real life practical case studies and researched on several aspects of the economy and how it relates to the business world. The program trains you on how to do an in depth analysis and being thorough with the ever changing business environment. It also gives you the chance to network amongst companies as lots of company visits are organized and also top executives in companies are being invited to classroom to share their experience and challenges in the business world. Through networking, most of us got jobs almost immediately after graduation. It was really an interesting experience.
