CHE University Rankings: Students rate management and information systems programs

To compile the rankings, the center conducts surveys of students and assesses various performance indicators. In around 30 categories, which vary from subject to subject, universities are classified in three groups (top, middle and bottom).

The latest issue, released today, covers management and information systems. Students at TUM awarded top marks to both areas under the criteria courses offered, research orientation and career orientation. TUM is also listed in the top group with regard to IT infrastructure and the equipment provided in libraries and other spaces. In addition, the CHE analysis shows that TUM provides optimal support during the study entry phase.

Number six worldwide ranking for graduate employability

In recent years TUM also achieved outstanding results in the CHE rankings for engineering, medicine, natural sciences, mathematics and informatics.
