Hi!

I am shrinking down the set of possible schools I would like to attend.

1)
As said I definitely prefer schools without compulsory visits but with a good online "classroom feeling" (live online lectures, live classroom debates, etc.).

2)
I also prefer assignments, housework etc. over written exams.. I hate learning sth by heart as it does not lead to much on the long term; really spending hours and days at home and thinking things through is much more efficient, at least for me and my "learning style": This does not mean that I am not performing well in written examinations, I just do not like them as I do not regard them to be the best way of learning.

3)
At least one recognized accreditation, triple accreditation preferred

4)
Focus on Entrepreneurship preferred

5)
"Price limit": < 20k GBP

6)
I am still not sure whether I should pursue the MBA in Germany or somewhere else in Europe; I will probably stay in Germany and do business here during the next years, so maybe it would be of advantage to focus on German "regulations"?

This is my current list:

Unordered list of schools outside Germany:

1. Aston (triple accredited, no compulsory on-campus sessions?)
2. Bradford (triple accredited, no compulsory on-campus sessions?)
3. Durham (triple accredited, no compulsory on-campus sessions?)
4. Leicester (AMBA only, no compulsory on-campus sessions?, pretty "cheap", website looks ugly *g)
5. Liverpool (not well accredited, but completely online)
6. Warwick (triple accredited, compulsory weeks)

Unordered list of schools within Germany:

1. UnternehmerTUM TU München (not yet accredited, ompulsory on-campus sessions)
2. Uni Augsburg (FIBAA, compulsory on-campus sessions)
3. SRH Riedlingen
4. PFH Göttingen
5. RheinArhCampus Remagen
6. mba-entrepreneurship.com (not well accredited)
7. HHL Leipzig (EuroMBA) (too expensive)
8. FernFH Hamburg (not well accredited)
9. Frankfurt School of Business and Mgmt (inappropriate concentrations)
10. HWR Berlin

What do you guys think?
Anyone attending any of these schools and able to share experiences?

Thank you sooo much...

I think there's not a single German program on your list that matches up to any of the UK schools you mentioned in terms of reputation (possible exception of HHL over Liverpool...)

That might be right from a pure perspective of reputation; bit there are also these other questions/aspects I mentioned, right?...

I'd take Warwick from the first group... the second group deals with german environment and depends mostly on your goals.

Last week I got in touch with a couple of friends who attended CUOA (a small italian business school, no accreditations,ecc); they took the emba (20000e) and they were very happy with their choice.
They have just opened a nice business based on China import/export and they enjoy the local network they could build during the course (Since they deal mostly with local companies).

Of course they ll never spend the emba outside Italy but, actually, they got what they needed.

If I were you, I'd focus on the top list, as the distance learning programs in Germany are not as robust as the offerings elsewhere. Have you checked out on-campus programs in Germany as an alternative? I'd think you'd be better off with an accredited program like WHU's, the Mannheim program, or GBS'.

As for the distance learning programs you mentioned in your first list, Aston, Bradford, Durham, and Leicester all have optional on-campus residencies. I'd narrow that list even further to only consider Aston, Warwick, Bradford and Durham. Check out their learning platforms and see which one suits you best - they're all pretty different.

On-campus would only be an option if attenable part-time (evening, weekend, distance, whatever.
Any recommendation for Germany maybe even with focus on entrepreneurship?

Two more questions:

1)
Regarding the British programs, can someone confirm which programs do not have compulsory on-site events (optional would be cool)?

2)
Does anyone know which programs work more with housework, home assignments etc. instead of written examinations?

Thanks.

Honestly, if you're going to study entrepreneurship, you might as well get a job at a company or business that you admire and start your own. The money you save not going to college can be invested in starting up your business.

School is greatly overrated these days and many universities are just diploma mills that don't really guarantee anything. I say trust yourself and invest in yourself. It's easy to get start up money if you're interested in the tech space.

Not sure about that. An MBA from a school strong in entrepreneurship - like Stanford, MIT, or Harvard - can provide invaluable leverage when you're pitching a new business ideas to VCs and angel investors. For many people without connections, these MBAs, while expensive, can be a way in to get funding.
