BiTS programs in Business and Media were recognized among the best in Germany by Centre for Higher Education Development (CHE) / Zeit magazine university rankings.
The CHE ranking is the most comprehensive and detailed university ranking in Germany. More than 300 colleges and universities in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Netherlands are reviewed in the CHE rankings. In addition to information on studying, teaching, facilities and research, the ranking is based on feedback from more than 250,000 students who are asked about the programs, facilities and student life at their university.
In the Department of Business BiTS received high scores in four of five categories, with the overall study conditions, the programs, the practical nature of the programs and the international focus of the school earning a first class rating. In Media, BiTS programs in journalism, media management and public relations were among the top in the overall program experience and the academic program categories.
In business, in addition to the established Business and Management Studies (B.Sc.), Sport & Event Management (B.Sc.) and Corporate Management (M.Sc.) programs, the newer offerings in Finance and Management (M.Sc.), Marketing Management (M.A.), International Sport & Event Management (M.A.), Green Business Management (B.Sc.) and Business and Technology Management (B.Sc.) also earned top marks.
The CHE University Ranking was announced in May in the new DIE ZEIT study guide 2011/12. The study guide provides information on about 2,500 academic departments with more than 7,500 courses.
