CHE Higher Education Ranking 2017: EBS students well satisfied!
The EBS Law School, the most recently established law faculty in Germany, is placed in the top group in eleven out of twelve categories covered by the student survey. The students’ assessment of the individual support they receive from the teaching personnel was particularly positive, likewise the intensive support in connection with their studies as a whole, and the high quality of the university’s revision courses. In the individual categories the Law School performs considerably better than the national average for all universities . EBS President Professor Dr. Markus Ogorek comments: “We are genuinely delighted with this excellent assessment. The ranking demonstrates clearly that our intensive program of support has indeed paid off – this is also confirmed by the very pleasing examination results achieved by our first graduation year.” These final-year Law School students, who began their studies in 2011, achieved a distinction rating (9 points or higher) of more than 45 percent in the 2016 examinations. By contrast, the average distinction rating in the federal state of Hessen was approximately 14 percent in 2016.
The EBS Business School also achieves impressive results: The EBS Business School is placed in the top group in ten out of twelve categories covered by the student survey. It achieves high scores thanks to the international focus of its bachelor and master degree programmes, the intensive support of students, and its scientific publications, especially in collaboration with corporate partners as well as in an international context. There is also close interaction with corporate partners at the everyday teaching level, for example in connection with consulting field studies, in which students develop solutions for companies’ problems. All-English programmes, compulsory stays abroad at one of more than 200 partner universities, and internships with international companies are all integral parts of student life at the EBS. As Professor Dr. Markus Kreutzer, Acting Dean of the EBS Business School, explains: “Anyone looking for distinctly international courses in business studies will feel right at home at the EBS and will also have the option of obtaining a double degree – at both bachelor and master level. Our students can spend three out of six terms or two out of four terms at a prestigious university in another country.”.
