In this year's CHE University Ranking, WHU - Otto Beisheim School of Management once again reached impressive results as one of the top performers in the categories of ‘course offerings’, ‘study organization for study abroad’, and ‘career orientation’. WHU students particularly rated the general study environment very positively, including the quality of study rooms and the support they received throughout their studies.
"We are pleased to see our aspiration in teaching and research reflected in the ranking, but, above all, the satisfaction of our students", says Professor Dr. Markus Rudolf, Dean of WHU. In addition to objective data on the study situation, the CHE University Ranking also analyzes and presents subjective assessments by students and teachers. In all categories evaluated by students, WHU ranked top of the group.
The CHE University Ranking, published by the weekly German newspaper DIE ZEIT, reevaluates approximately 40 different study subjects at over 300 German and Austrian universities every three years, and 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.
