German term or phrase:Diplom-Betriebswirt
Once again, this term appears on a graduation certificate. The text is as follows:
hat die staatliche Prüfung für Diplom-Betriebswirte erfolgreich abgelegt und wird die staatliche Bezeichnung DIPLOM-BETRIEBSWIRT (BERUFSAKADEMIE) - DIPL.-BETRIEBSWIRT (BA) - verliehen.
My confusion lies in the differentiation between (German)Diploma meaning "degree" or "diploma" in English. Or could Diplom-Betriebswirt possibly mean MBA (Master of Business Administration) in this case?
Explanation: This exact term came up a while back and was well answered by someone who had gained the qualification - it would be worthwhile to review the answer and other good suggestions made at that time.
Explanation: I checked with Harper Collins dictionary, indicating that the word "Diplom-" in front of a job title should be translated with qualified, and the most appropriate translation for Betriebswirt(in) should be management expert in my opinion. Hope that helps!
