"The ranking shows that outstanding research and excellent teaching go hand in hand here", said the Dean of the School of Business, Economics and Information Systems, Professor Stefan Bauernschuster. "Our aim is to provide our students with an excellent academic education and the best possible support. The results paint a clear picture of a highly satisfied student body. As a faculty, this makes us proud", said the Dean of Studies at the School of Business, Economics and Information Systems, Professor Sebastian Krautheim.
The CHE ranking is based in part on a student survey, in which criteria such as the study situation, support situation, IT infrastructure, practical orientation and support for study and work abroad are evaluated.
The B.Sc. Business Administration & Economics (BAE) programme achieved top rankings in 14 out of 18 categories assessed. Said programme convenor Professor Markus Diller: "Such a result is a nice confirmation for our faculty, which shows that contemporary and modern teaching in business and economics – in addition to strong research – is very close to our hearts. This also reflects the excellent relationship between lecturers and students at our university."
The B.Sc. Information Systems programme reached the top range in 13 out of 15 categories assessed. "I am delighted at the positive ratings of our degree programme. I am absolutely convinced that we offer our students a great teaching programme in the sense of a modern business informatics education. And on top of that, the feedback from our students helps us to improve further", said programme convenor Professor Thomas Widjaja.
In addition to the data gathered for the CHE ranking, the faculty also gained important student feedback on the new B.Sc. Digital Transformation in Business and Society programme (DTBS), which is still too new to be included in the CHE ranking. Student feedback for this programme was also very positive and testified to a high level of student satisfaction. "This valuable feedback from our first cohort of students gives us important impulses for the further development of the degree programme", said the programme convenor Professor Dirk Totzek.
The results of these rankings are in line with the excellent results of the latest THE ranking, in which the School of Business, Economics and Information Systems positioned itself among the 201-250 faculties worldwide and was able to move up 150 places despite the number of competitors in the ranking having grown considerably since the previous year.
