Bachelor: King's College or WHU

Hello,
I will soon finish my Abitur with an average of 1.1-1.3 in Bavaria and of course I would like to continue studying. I can only express one layperson's wish - but it would be my dream to start in investment banking (London, NY, HK or Singapore). I found all of the countries very interesting (I have already visited them). I now have the option of either doing a BSc in Accounting and Finance at King’s College or a Bachelor’s degree from WHU. With the latter, I would not have to pay any tuition fees, as I would get a free place. Which university is better for the Bachelor and as a later entry into the IB - for GS or MS? Another small question: Is there a possibility to do an internship at a bank right after school?

I thank you in advance for your help! :)

Nice weekend! (Status: 05.04.2019;))

WHU and then apply directly for Spring Week in London with the Abitur!

Go to the Frankfurt School of Finance - is better known and better internationally!

I hope this is a joke .....

If you don't mind the tuition fees go for King's.

Solid university and won't lock a door for you (not in DE anyway). In the UK you will certainly have good cards, but it will not be easy to prevail against LSE / Oxbridge.

But everything is possible!

Unfortunately, I personally don't find the Frankfurt School so interesting. Please don't get me wrong - it's probably a very good university, but as I said, I don't find it that interesting.

From both of them you can get to the IB in London or Frankfurt. If you can get WHU for free, there is no reason to pay for the King's College Tuition + the horrific cost of living in London, so -> WHU.

Thanks for the laugh - FS falls against WHU even without a WHU free place. With free place, I would also prefer WHU Mannheim / HSG.

Go to Mannheim! There is nothing comparable in Germany and on a level with LSE, Oxford and Cambridge!

Bingo, only 15 minutes before someone recommends Mannheim. No relevance to the topic of KCL vs WHU.

That would be possible in terms of grades - but is Mannheim or WHU better?

Mannheim is significantly better than WHU and free of charge! Why do you want to spend the 50,000 € so badly?

WHU free place or kings?

Of course WHU, they have a terrific placement. With WHU and a high school diploma, you come to London in a relaxed manner.

FS must never play a role for you.

Bachelor: King's College or WHU

I would still recommend King's to the TE. London as a city a million times better than Vallendar and the reputation of King's is also very good - definitely better than that of WHU!

At that time I decided for a German state university and against the LSE because the bottom line is that it's still a lot of money for a bachelor's degree. And King's is not as extraordinary as Oxbridge - in this respect, a cost-benefit analysis is clearly worthwhile, because you can come to the big banks in London or McKinsey from WHU or HSG as well as from King's College. King's is of course quite strong in an international comparison, but is immediately outperformed in London by LSE, Imperial and UCL, which means that I would not rate the location advantage that much.

reply

Bachelor: King's College or WHU

KCL's reputation is based on medicine and law, not business studies. The London IBs go to Oxbridge to London Colleges LSE, ICL, UCL and even Cass has more IB contacts. Go to WHU.

The Frankfurt School is much better than the King's !!!

Why should number 5 or 6 in England be better for Frankfurt IB than number 1/2 in Germany?

WHU with free space shouldn't be a question. You can discuss between WHU with fees and Mannheim for free.

So I would definitely go to WHU

reply

Bachelor: King's College or WHU

But it is not clear whether the TE would like to stay in Frankfurt or in Germany.

WHU is extremely "London-heavy" (at least in the IB - everyone goes to London, almost none to FFM)?

reply

Bachelor: King's College or WHU

In the IB in FFM only the lowies from Goethe end up, who then have to compensate for the fact that they have nothing on them with the working hours.
The HiPos land in London with the best prospects for PE and HF.

This Goethe bashing is quite amusing, as the majority of Nordendlers also end up in FFM and pay 30K more fees for it, but push your bigwig university further.

I don't even want to go to London, Dean's List Lowi von der Goethe. I hardly know anyone here who wants that.
Have you ever thought about it?

Apart from the fact that a business graduate has as little place in most HFs as a fly in the soup.

Mannheim on a par with LSE, Oxford and Cambridge, studying at the LSE and before that I was in Mannheim - I can say seldom read something so ridiculous. Networking and commitment by banks alone is worlds better. The courses are a lot more difficult, but more commitment from the professors (not a mass university but a cadre school)

The elite University of Oxford receives a record donation of almost 170 million euros from US billionaire and Blackstone CEO Stephen A. Schwarzman. Oxford University announces unprecedented investment in the humanities and an institute for ethics in artificial intelligence (AI). In order to conduct interdisciplinary research, the departments of history, linguistics, philology and phonetics, languages, music, philosophy, theology and religion are brought together.

The International Student Identity Card - ISIC for short - is the only student ID that is recognized worldwide. With the ID, students receive discounts in over 132 countries around the globe. The international student ID has been around for 60 years.

The current IEC Study Guide 2019 will help you to go abroad for a semester or to study abroad. Prospective students can find helpful tips on 120 universities in more than 20 countries in the free study guide for studying abroad. Questions about financing, application, grade recognition, university rankings, study countries and partner universities are answered in detail.

Anyone who wants or has to prove their knowledge of foreign languages ​​in a student or professional environment will sooner or later not get around an official language certificate. However, it is not always easy to find the flood of information on the subjects of "language tests", "language exams" and "language diplomas". If you want to take a language certificate, you should first find out exactly which proof is required in a specific case and how you can best prepare for the respective language exam.

A year abroad can have many incentives, better language skills, the desire to develop personally or simply the desire to travel. Regardless of whether it is a student exchange, language trip, au pair stay, internship abroad or study abroad, in a global world of work, career opportunities increase with every experience abroad.

Studying abroad or a semester abroad can be expensive. Saving the change you need for this can be done through part-time jobs or the parental allowance. However, the savings are often far from being sufficient. There are numerous options in Germany for financing your studies abroad. Auslandsbafög, education loans, scholarships, Erasmus & Co - WiWi-TReFF shows what support there is.

Whether greater self-confidence or increased language skills: a stay abroad during your studies ensures improvement in many areas. Children from non-academic families perceive this effect to be even more pronounced in certain areas. This is shown by an analysis by the CHE Center for University Development.

In 2015, almost 140,000 German students were enrolled to study abroad. The most popular host countries include Austria, the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Popular destinations for short semesters abroad are Great Britain, the USA, France and Spain. Currently, more than a third of all students spend part of their studies abroad. In 2017, more than 355,000 foreign students were enrolled at German universities for the first time.

More and more German students want to study internationally: In 2014 137,000 students went abroad. The neighboring country Austria is the most popular, followed by the Netherlands, Great Britain and Switzerland. Business students are particularly drawn to the Netherlands.

The goal of learning a language intensively and up close is a great side effect of studying abroad.But before the acceptance at a foreign university is successful, prospective students must first prove whether they already speak the language. The six levels of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​(GES) provide information about the extent to which the understanding of a foreign language is sufficient. For this purpose, various language certificates have been developed that are recognized by universities, companies and other institutions for applications. Depending on which country comes into question, a certificate in TOEFL, IELTS, DELF, DALF or DELE must be proven.

The university rectors from Germany and Great Britain expect devastating consequences for studies and research after a possible Brexit. The EU makes it easier for researchers to work together, share resources and share important data. Students from both countries also benefit from this. There are currently 13,765 degree-seeking students and 4,428 Erasmus students from Germany in Great Britain.

English master’s courses are in great demand among companies and business students. A business master’s degree abroad helps to orientate your studies internationally. Native-speaking master’s programs such as those at Griffith College Dublin in Ireland impart excellent knowledge of English in addition to economic content.

The number of stays abroad by students and university members continues to increase despite the financial crisis that has been felt in several European countries. The mobility figures are stable and the number of internships in particular has increased significantly. This is shown by the study "Student and staff mobility in times of crisis" initiated by the DAAD.

Many economics students dare to move to a university abroad. How long do most of them stay there and which study countries are particularly popular?

Stays abroad are considered a plus point in the application. Anyone who has studied abroad demonstrates flexibility and organizational skills and understands the language and culture of the country. In addition, stays abroad are funded through numerous programs and grants.
