Studying at FWW = Studying at a "High Level”

The renowned German Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) has published his current university ranking in the field of Business Administration/ BWL. The corresponding surveys and analyses included fact and data checks, departmental and student surveys, etc., and led to a quiet pleasant rating in the range of German higher institutions and universities.

The Faculty of Economics and Management is very pleased about the good rating given by the participants of the CHE.

We would like to thank all CHE survey participants for they support in this way! Thank you!
