Hello Rahul, how are you doing?

To be officially accurate, German universities do not accept a 3-year bachelor degree for masters. By officially I mean they accept international students with a 3-year bachelor as an equivalent degree. So in a way, the answer is that you are eligible to apply for an MBA in Germany with a 3-year bachelor's degree.


As for the question of how many, you can count all of them. But you need to know a few things. It's not likely for a German university to accept any 3-year bachelor's degree for an MBA program. It should fit according to their basis.


The bachelor's degrees in Germany mostly contain 210 or 240 ECTS;  short for European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. So as long as your bachelor's degree is of 240 credits, you don't need to worry. Maybe it all seems a little complex so I will make a simpler argument. Your bachelor's degree is only needed to be acknowledged by German universities for an MBA program. And in general, it does.


There isn't an actual number to give you as an answer. But we can assume almost all German universities accept a 3-year bachelor degree for MBA, to the point it fulfils the criteria. 

Is there any specific university that you are targeting/preferring? Let me know and I can check the eligibility criteria for that specific one.

Many Canadian universities are quite flexible when it comes to educational backgrounds for an MBA. While each university has its own specific criteria, a significant number do recognize a 3-year bachelor's degree as sufficient for MBA admission, especially if supplemented with hard professional experience or strong GMAT scores. 

Simon Fraser University (SFU)
Brock University
Memorial University of Newfoundland
University of Lethbridge
Dalhousie University
Thompson River University
Ryerson University
The University of British Colombia, etc.
For instance, some may require additional qualifications or work experience to compensate for the shorter undergraduate program. Your overall profile, including academic achievements, professional experience, and extracurricular involvement, is often just as important as the length of your undergraduate program."

Well, Canada’s educational institutions are known for their inclusivity and diverse student bodies. When it comes to accepting 3-year bachelor's degrees for MBA programs, many Canadian universities are quite welcoming. However, it’s not a one-size-fits-all situation. Some of the top MBA Colleges in canada business schools might require a four-year degree or equivalent, but others are open to assessing your overall profile, including your work experience, extracurricular activities, and leadership skills.

 My advice? Target a mix of institutions and make sure your application showcases your strengths and potential. And yes, always double-check with the universities you’re interested in – requirements can change, and you want to be absolutely sure of your eligibility.
