US Federal Loans (FAFSA) at Germanys HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management18.12.2014 - (idw) HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management
German universities are becoming increasingly attractive for students from the United States. As the Institute of International Education (IIE) recently stated: In the academic year 2013/2014, the number of US students who completed a semester abroad, an internship, a summer school, a course of study or a language course rose to 9,544, setting a new record.
Candidates for a Masters program (MBA or M.Sc.) at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management can sometimes find funds in their home country before coming to Germany.
HHL, which is accredited by AACSB International, is eligible to certify loan applications for the US Direct Loan Program. The direct loans are low-interest student loans offered by the U.S. Department of Education rather than a bank or other financial institution.
US-born Jared Cardon, who completed an MBA from HHL, says, I wanted to earn a prestigious masters degree but none of the programs in the States that I could afford were very good. When I discovered that I could earn an International MBA from a ranking school in Germany while getting the top-tier education taught at more expensive schools in the States it seemed like a no brainer. Earning my MBA at HHL has been an education and an adventure.
Adds Professor Michael Porter, Honory Doctor of HHL, and Professor at Harvard Business School, HHL is an institution that shares some of my core values as a scholar. It builds the connection between academic scholarship, theoretical development, and real world practice. That is one of the hallmarks of a business school.
According to the Financial Times, HHL ranks first in Germany and fifth globally for its entrepreneurship focus within the M.Sc. and EMBA programs. The MBA program offered by HHL, which is taught in English, is considered one of the best independently developed programs of this kind in Germany. The proportion of international students in this HHL program is approximately 80 percent, an outstanding figure in comparison to full-time MBA programs globally. Since its introduction in the year 2000, the full-time MBA program has focused on teaching management and leadership skills in a global context. The English-language Master in Management Program (M.Sc.) at HHL was ranked among the top of its kind in Germany according to the latest Financial Times Masters in Management Ranking. The program provides a basis for future management tasks and covers a wide variety of economic topics. The international cross-linking of both the MBA as well as the M.Sc. programs is denoted by substantial cooperation with universities abroad. From Australia to the US HHL has more than 110 partner universities worldwide. The students have the opportunity to spend a term at one of these partner universities. The intensive and professional counseling for students from initial contact to the alumni network has to be emphasized. HHL's Career Service accompanies students from the day they are admitted to the program, the successful conclusion of a job search to individual coaching sessions after graduation. http://www.hhl.de/mba / http://www.hhl.de/msc
HHL is located in the vibrant City of Leipzig. As a place to see according to the New York Times, the city is at the crossroads of historic European trade routes. Leipzig prides itself on a 1000-year tradition of economic vitality and a meeting place for science and the arts. Building on this history, Leipzig has developed into an internationally attractive place for global business players like BMW, Porsche or DHL. Bach, Mendelssohn, Goethe, Schiller, Nietzsche have all lived and worked in the Leipzig and left legacies behind. Music and literature thrive today at Leipzigs famed Gewandhaus symphony, Schauspielhaus theater, Opera and annual Book Fair. Entrepreneurship, trade fair management and such cutting edge fields as biotechnology have found a welcome home here, too. http://english.leipzig.de/
