Why WFI?



Five reasons, one result: Business Administration at WFI

1- One of the best faculties for Business Administration in Germany

Throughout Germany, the WFI is one of the best university facilities in the field of business administration. This is also shown by our excellent ranking results for years, e.g. latest:

  • Trendence Graduate Barometer: WFI Ingolstadt School of Management confirmed its top positions in 6/10 categories and received top rankings in the following areas: „Business Cooperations", „Lecturers/Professors", „Service and Counselling", „Practical Relevance", „Career Service" and „Quality of the Library"
  • CHE Hochschulranking: WFI is ranked at the top regarding "range of courses”, "degrees in due course”, "overall study situation” and "total number of students”; excellent evaluations regarding "student-to-teacher ratio“, "practical relevance”, "international orientation of the study programs”, "feasibility of study workload” and “support for university entrants”

2- Students and alumni are highly satisfied with studying at WFI

The WFI is more than only professional studies: students become part of the WFI-family. Our students are highly motivated and very committed to student initiatives and organizations. This is all part of the WFI’s unique team spirit. Even after graduating students like to look back on their time at WFI (this is what our alumni value most about WFI). According to the website “studycheck.de” the KU - and thus the WFI - is among the most popular universities in Germany in 2018. Students evaluated „course contents”, “lectures” and “lecturers/ professors" excellently (based on a total of more than 45,000 evaluations by students).

3- Excellent student-teacher ratio: 11 students – 1 lecturer

With fewer than 1100 students, the WFI is among the smallest faculties of business administration in Germany. The excellent student-teacher ratio of 11:1 enables us to offer individualized study programs, adjusted to students' preferences, and to stay in close contact with our students. The personal counselling, the compact and well-equipped campus and especially the solidarity among all members of the faculty provide excellent study conditions.


4- Career-springboard: 11 well-known partner companies

Global leaders, DAX companies and start-ups are all part of our partner companies and provide internship and permanent positions for our students. By means of our close cooperation with partner companies numerous possibilities open up for our students and teachers to put the theoretical knowledge and research outcomes into practice. Career fairs on campus as well as company presentations and workshops offer best opportunities for networking. In addition, many students write their thesis in cooperation with external companies. Our courses are very application-oriented and enable our students to gather experience with and in companies.


5- Internationality: 90 partner universities worldwide

Our students are at home in Ingolstadt and in the whole world: multi-language study programs and 90 partner universities provide an international study atmosphere. Most of our students (approx. 90 %) spending one or more semesters abroad at one of our well-known partner universities. We support and facilitate the study abroad by offering a compulsory business language, a range of courses taught in English and additional lectures by international guest lecturers.

"After my Bachelor's degree at the LMU Munich, the family atmosphere at the WFI was decisive for me. The Master's is application-oriented and is characterised by excellent supervision conditions and very good company contacts. I was enthusiastic about events such as the WFI Consulting Cup and the Summer Challenge, where I came into contact with Vodafone, my current employer, in a very pleasant way".

WFI Alumni - Klaus Ulrich Pfeiffer

"In retrospect, the WFI was also the right choice - optimal proximity to teaching and lecturers and high commitment of fellow students inside and outside the university. This school had a decisive influence on my personal path and this opportunity is still available today. This is proven by many graduates, whom I got to know afterwards as employees and customers, among other things".
