WFI Master’s programs among top ten in CHE university ranking

In a nationwide comparison, the KU's study program achieved excellent results once again: Students of the Master's degree program in Business Administration at the Ingolstadt School of Management (WFI) rate the overall study situation very positively. They have therefore voted WFI into the top group in the university ranking of the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE). In a Germany-wide comparison, it ranks among the top ten.

In addition to the general study situation, students surveyed particularly appreciate the wide diversity of content of the courses offered, the opportunities for defining individual focus areas, and the international orientation of the courses. With regard to the organization of the study program, they are very satisfied with the coordination of the content of the various courses, the number of participants in lectures and seminars, and the fact that there is no overlap between required courses. Along with this, they particularly appreciate the fact that at WFI, students have above-average possibility to complete their studies in the standard period of study.

Fellow students at WFI particularly emphasize the good social climate between students and lecturers as well as the good ability to take criticism on the part of their lecturers. They also find the support for the preparation of studies abroad and the recognition of academic achievements obtained abroad to be above average. Among other things, they also positively emphasize the scientific relevance and the teaching of scientific thinking.

A Master's program at the Ingolstadt School of Management offers the opportunity to deepen already acquired knowledge and to expand it further in a meaningful way through interdisciplinary fundamentals. One specific feature is the ethics section, which is firmly anchored in the curriculum. A broad selection of elective modules allows students to choose which area or areas they wish to focus on. When applying for the program, students choose one of the eight offered specializations: BAOR (Business Analytics & Operations Research), ENTRE (Entrepreneurship & Innovation), FACT (Finance, Accounting, Controlling, Taxation and Business Law), MARKT (Market-oriented Management), International Business Administration (joint program with TBS – Toulouse Business School or the Indian RCBS Rajagiri Center for Business Studies), Business Administration International Marketing (offered together with tsm - Toulouse School of Management), Business & Psychology and the Master’s program in Taxation.

In addition to facts about studying, teaching, facilities and research, the ranking also includes students' assessments of the study conditions at their university. It regularly examines more than 30 subjects at over 300 universities and universities of applied sciences. According to CHE, it takes into account the assessments of around 250,000 students.
