By: Johannes Müller, Katrin Reil

In the latest ranking carried out by the Center for University Development, (CHE) the Master degree programmes at the School of Business Administration at ESB Business School have again scored top ratings.   

ESB Business School at Reutlingen University does exceptionally well in the latest CHE ranking. In three out of four categories – international orientation, degrees completed within an appropriate timeframe and the overall study situation – the Master degree programmes at the School of Business Administration are in the top group. ESB is thus in the top group of universities of applied sciences nationwide.  

“The very good result is a vote of confidence in our work, for example in the consistent integration of semesters and internships abroad, multilingual programmes and the practical experience of our teaching staff. We are particularly pleased with the good results of the student survey“, says Andreas Taschner, Dean of ESB Business School.

In the survey the students assessed the Business Administration Master degree programmes with top ratings in eleven of the 13 categories. In addition to the general study situation, questions were asked about the feasibility of completing the course within the allotted time, the range of courses and the international orientation.  Particularly striking in the student survey were the very good results in the areas of professional and practical relevance. For example, the students of the Master of Arts European Management Studies programme not only complete an internship semester in Germany but during their period abroad at the University of Strasbourg alternate on a weekly basis between the university and a company where they then also write their Master thesis. Entry into the Master’s course as well as the facilities at ESB Business School also received top ratings in the survey.

Altogether more than 20 indicators were included in the ranking. The student survey took place between April and June 2017. In addition, results for indicators based on facts such as the number of Master students at the School or the proportion of teaching carried out by practitioners were also reflected in the ranking. ZEIT ONLINE  provides an overview of all the Master programmes.

ZEIT CAMPUS publishes the results in selected criteria. The latest issue of ZEIT CAMPUS, entitled “we do it better, different, new“, including the supplement “Berufsbilder für Wirtschaftsstudenten“ (Job Profiles for Business Students), is available from 5 December 2017.
