The latest CHE ranking reflects the opinions of master’s students which were collected between April and July 2017. The survey assesses the overall study situation, whether the program is completed in an appropriate time, the extent of the program’s international orientation and scientific orientation, and the transition from a bachelor’s program into the master's program.
When it comes to business, the University of Mannheim is the only state university besides the Georg-August-Universität Göttingen to receive top scores in all of these areas, confirming its position as one of the best universities in Germany in this field. It was also ranked in the top group in three of these areas for the economics program, and the international orientation of the business informatics program is considered to be very good.
The CHE University Ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university ranking in German-speaking countries. It is based on student surveys which are regularly carried out at more than 300 higher education institutions in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands by the Centre for Higher Education. The ranking is published online at http://ranking.zeit.de/che2016/de/masterranking and in the print edition of the ZEIT Campus magazine.
