U-Multirank 2014

U-Multirank has placed EBS among the top three German universities in the categories of Research (as measured by top cited publications) and International Orientation (as measured by student mobility). In the category of International Orientation, we are also among the Top 25 in the global ranking.

Interestingly, while German universities on the whole are dominated by traditionally leading American universities in terms of the overall number of publications, many German universities are especially strong in terms of the number of citations per publication, which reflects the high quality of research at German institutions.

The U-Multirank ranking—initiated by the European Commission—provides prospective students with more granular insights than traditional rankings by examining a variety of dimensions, rather than a single overall score.
