The CHE University Ranking, which is published by the weekly German newspaper DIE ZEIT, reevaluates approximately 40 different study subjects at over 300 German and Austrian universities every three years. It is the most extensive university ranking in Germany. For the CHE University Ranking 2020, the subjects Business Administration, Economics, Business Studies, Business Information Technology, Industrial Engineering and Management, Law, Business Law, and Social Work were examined. In contrast to other German and Anglo-Saxon rankings, the CHE University Ranking does not show ranking places but ranking groups, differentiating between a top, middle, and bottom group.
