Top places in the CHE ranking

European University Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) is first class in terms of internationality and study satisfaction.

In all criteria relating to the international orientation and the quality of its studies, the European University Viadrina is ranked first in the current CHE university ranking. As in the previous editions of the 2014 and 2011 rankings, the results of the study programs examined confirm the excellent study situation and ideal conditions for studies with an international focus.

The university ranking of the weekly newspaper "Die ZEIT" and the Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE) is Germany's largest and most important comparative ranking of state and private universities. The results in the areas of research, teaching and facilities are influenced by the judgments of the students.

The current results of the ranking:

Top marks for Viadrina's business administration programs

The Viadrina is the only state-run university in Germany to be ranked among the top three universities in Germany with the Bachelor's programs International Business Administration (IBA) and Internationale Betriebswirtschaftslehre (IBWL) as well as the Master's program International Business Administration (IBA) in all aspects of study quality and international orientation. The students rated the study conditions and studyability, the range of courses on offer and the support provided by teachers, support in organising stays abroad and the professional relevance of the business studies program as excellent.

European University Viadrina awarded for law studies

In the field of Law, Viadrina ranks among the three best state universities in Germany. Students rated the study conditions and studyability, the range of courses offered, tutoring by teachers, support during their studies and the organisation of stays abroad as well as the professional relevance as first-class.

Social and Cultural studies

The CHE ranking only covers the larger and traditional disciplines, while newer subjects (such as social and cultural studies) and smaller subjects are not considered. For this reason, there are no comparative figures for the interdisciplinary study programs of the Faculty of Social and Cultural Sciences.
