Independent institutions confirm the excellence of our teaching and research – all EBS Universität’s study programmes are internationally recognised and accredited by the German Accreditation Council. In addition, EBS regularly achieves top ratings in renowned university rankings.
AACSB (Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business) is a global not-for-profit organisation that brings together educators, students and businesses to achieve a common goal: to educate the next generation of leaders. Since 1916, AACSB has stood for the highest standards of quality, providing quality assurance, business education information, and learning and development services worldwide.
In 2022, EBS Universität was reaccredited by Wissenschaftsrat, the German Council of Science and Humanities, for the next 5 years.
This academic seal of quality is awarded to non-governmental universities whose performance in teaching and research meets recognised scientific standards. The period of accreditation by the Wissenschaftsrat is for a maximum of ten years, depending on the outcome of the review process. The Wissenschaftsrat is one of Germany’s most critical science policy advisory bodies and advises the federal and state governments on developing universities, science and research. In the multi-stage accreditation procedure, which includes the submission of a self-report by the university and a visit to the university by an external group of experts over several days, the university is evaluated in eight key areas. These include its academic quality in research and teaching, its structures and equipment, and its quality assurance and development.
All study programmes at EBS Universität are accredited by the Accreditation Council and are reviewed regularly in cooperation with the accreditation agency FIBAA.
The superordinate Foundation Akkreditierungsrat is an association of the German federal states aiming for quality assurance in learning and teaching at German universities. Since 2018, following the conversion of the German accreditation process, the Akkreditierungsrat has focused on the decision of accreditations. These are based on reviews of the accreditation agencies on programme accreditations as well as system accreditations. Thus, the Akkreditierungsrat plays an essential role in the final evaluation of the respective study programme. The Accreditation Council only accepts expert reports from accreditation agencies that have the EQAR registration of the Accreditation Council. The degree programmes at EBS Universität have been assessed by FIBAA, which is notably recognised in business and economics.
The CHE Hochschulranking is the most comprehensive and detailed ranking of German universities. It includes data about studies, teaching, equipment and research, and students’ assessments of the learning conditions at their university in the ranking. The annual DIE ZEIT study guide publishes the results. For some subjects, the ranking also considers the reputation of the departments among professors. In addition to the comparative criteria, prospective students can choose from a wide range of descriptive features on study and teaching. EBS Universität is represented in the subject areas of Business Administration and Law and has consistently achieved excellent results over the past years.
In the latest CHE Ranking 2023/2024 EBS Universität was again in the upper field of the leading group in the majority of categories for both subjects and was able to strengthen its position further. Notably, in Business Administration the EBS Universität is the only university to receive 5 stars in the overarching category "General study situation" as well as in the category "Supervision by teaching staff", which puts it in first place throughout Germany.
The WirtschaftsWoche ranking is published by the economic magazine WirtschaftsWoche every year and is based on a survey carried out by Universum. Universum is an internationally recognised Employer-Branding specialist. The magazine asks HR managers from German companies which university graduates they consider remarkably competent in their activities for the survey. EBS Universität für Wirtschaft und Recht is part of this ranking every year in Business Administration and Law. Overall, EBS Universität has achieved excellent results in recent years.
