The ranking also confirms that the Economics, Business Informatics, and Informatics programs produce very good graduates, with the programs being named by 15 percent (Economics), 17.9 percent (Business Informatics), and 13.6 percent (Informatics) of those surveyed.

Around 500 HR managers from all sizes of company were surveyed by the consulting firm, Universum, on behalf of the Wirtschaftswoche magazine. The survey looks at whether graduates gain experience in project work, whether they complete modules in more than one language, and whether they are familiar with the problems in their sector and are aware of possible solutions, among other things.
