In all three categories, the private business school made it into the top groups and was thus able to further expand its positive results from the past years.

After the very good results of MBS in the WiWo University Ranking 2020, the university is now also convincing in the ranking of the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE). In all three fact-based categories “Support at the Beginning of Studies”, “International Orientation” and “Job Market and Career Orientation”, Munich Business School achieved top rankings this year.

In the section “Support at the Beginning of Studies”, which includes various support measures for students in the introductory phase, the university achieves an excellent result with twelve out of fourteen possible points. With this rating, MBS ranks among the top universities, because no other private university in Germany achieves a better result.

Regarding the degree of international orientation of the study programs, the Bachelor International Business, the MBA General Management Full- and Part-time as well as almost all Master programs are represented in the top class with at least eight out of twelve possible points. Munich Business School scores particularly well on the criteria of student mobility, foreign languages and stays abroad.

As already confirmed in the WiWo university ranking, the programs of Munich Business School are particularly convincing due to their high practical relevance.

In terms of practical orientation, the Bachelor International Business performs particularly well with 11 points achieved.

The excellent performance of Munich Business School in the CHE University Ranking 2020/21 appears all the more remarkable when comparing the performance of all private universities of applied sciences in the field of business studies: Of almost 30 private universities of applied sciences ranked in the three categories mentioned above, apart from Munich Business School, no other private university of applied sciences in Germany achieves consistently top rankings for both Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs.

The university is pleased with the good results in the CHE University Ranking 2020/21: ” Globally-mindedness, practical experience and personal support are exactly the values that we have been representing and communicating since our foundation. We are delighted to see this confirmed in important rankings of the German university landscape for all our study programs – from Bachelor’s to Master’s and MBA,” says Prof. Dr. Stefan Baldi, Dean of Munich Business School.
