The Handelsblatt, Germany’s leading financial daily, regularly analyses the research performance of academics and faculties in business administration. Today, it has published its latest ranking of faculties’ performances. The ranking covers universities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and Frankfurt School of Finance & Management is placed fifth in Germany. It improves from eighth position in the previous ranking published in 2012. In the overall ranking, including Germany, Switzerland and Austria, Frankfurt School is placed tenth, a step-up from rank 14 in the 2012 ranking. The ranking is based on the number of articles published in scientific journals. The qualities of the different journals are also taken into account.
“Frankfurt School’s faculty has not only grown, we have also strengthened the research capacity and the ranking underlines our research performance. I’m proud of this excellent result,” says Frankfurt School President Professor Dr Udo Steffens. “The outstanding position will foster our reputation as a renowned research-oriented business school.” See Handelsblatt Online for more information on the ranking.
