According to employers, the University of Mannheim offers by far the best management education in Germany. In an annual survey of 500 HR executives conducted by the renowned business magazine WirtschaftsWoche (Handelsblatt Publishing Group), the University of Mannheim's Business School has taken the number one position for the eleventh time in a row.
52.3% of the HR decision makers who participated in the survey consider the University of Mannheim to be the best German University for Business Administration/Management. The University of Cologne (38.3%) and LMU Munich (36.9%), who hold the second and third places, lag behind considerably. Mannheim was also voted the best university for economics by 30.8% of the questioned HR executives, placing it ahead of the University of Cologne (28.8%), LMU Munich and Goethe University Frankfurt.
Basis for the ranking is a survey annually conducted by WirtschaftsWoche: 500 HR directors from across all industries, most of them coming from international companies with more than 1,000 employees, are asked to assess German business graduates, and thus, their universities, with regard to their employability.
The complete ranking can be found in the current issue of WirtschaftsWoche.
