CHE Ranking

Green light for the organization of academic program, transition to master's programs and contact with professional practice. In the current CHE Master Ranking, ISM scores particularly well in these categories and finds itself in the top group. "Our aim is to combine excellent teaching with training for the job market. The access to a large network of companies and partners from the economy is very important to us. We are therefore very pleased that our students have given us such positive feedback for practical relevance across the locations," explains ISM President Prof. Dr. Ingo Böckenholt.

Students from all campuses also gave top marks for the areas of study organization and transition to the master's programs. This includes small groups, the coordination of events or the support of the university at the beginning of the master's program.

ISM master students are also particularly satisfied with the possibility of completing their studies in a reasonable time and with the international orientation of the degree. In these categories several of the seven locations make it into the top group. The Cologne campus stands out with regard to service. Students rate the mentoring by lecturers, the assistance during studies and the support for studying abroad so well that the location makes it into the top group in all categories.

The CHE Master Ranking was published on December 1, 2020, and covers the master's programs in business administration, economics, business studies, business informatics and industrial engineering.
