The CHE Ranking (Centre for Higher Education Development) for the Master programmes in Economics in German-speaking countries was published today. In a student survey, Frankfurt School of Finance & Management scored top marks for its Master programmes in seven of eight categories: "General study situation", "Course offerings", "Study organisation", “Support”, "Support during studies", "Stays abroad" and "Transition between Bachelor and Master programmes". The ranking is based on a survey of Master’s students' satisfaction with various aspects of the eight categories. In the detailed evaluation, Frankfurt School achieved top marks for, among other things, "International orientation of the courses offered" (grade 1.2), "Access to courses" (grade 1.1) and "Adequate number of participants in courses" (grade 1.2).
The Master of Business Administration programmes also achieved a top rating in the category "degrees within a reasonable time" rated by faculty and staff. The Master in Applied Data Science, which is evaluated separately, was in the top group for "International orientation" rated by faculty and staff.
"The CHE ranking is particularly important for prospective students who consider taking up a master programme after their bachelor programme,” said Professor Nils Stieglitz, President of Frankfurt School. “We offer our students personal guidance and support during their master studies at Frankfurt School.
