      Hi there,

      thank you for your question. In general, a GMAT score of 620 is sufficiently good. If a school will not take you, then the GMAT score will not be the reason. On the other side, the GMAT score is not so high that you will impress people in the admissions department. Just keep this in mind.

      My second comment: If you want to start in Sept 2013 you will have two years of professional experience, right? In that case I would think about doing an MBA (and not a Master in Management). Please have a look at our article on the differences between the MBA and the MIM.

      As for the business schools that you mentioned: Please note that the Rotteram School of Management (RSM) is not a German school - it's a Dutch school and Rotterdam is placed in The Netherlands. The German schools in your list are all renowned schools in Germany indeed.

      As for your specific question, my dear, you can find them out easily by yourself - just visit the schools' website...

      1. Internships offered?
      2. Job Placements
      3. Value for money
      4. Is German language required?

      "Also what are my chances of gettin into it?"
      Again, the GMAT is fine. The work experience is fine as well - but keep in mind that for an MIM you don't need work experience at all and that you can start an MBA with 2 or 3 years of work experience already. Also, please keep in mind that the applicatoin process depends on many factors:

      1. Step: You want to get an invitatoin for an interview. My advice: Make sure that you write good essays.
      2. Step: Prepare yourself well for the interviews.

      Best wishes
