HHL Among the World’s Best

The full-time M.Sc. study program of HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management is #1 in Europe and Germany, and #2 globally, according to “THE Ranking”.

HHL took part in this advanced and special ranking of Times Higher Education (THE) and Wall Street Journal (WSJ) which scored four essential dimensions of Master in Management programs with extended criteria during an evaluation period of more than one year. HHL’s leading position is primarily based on factors like salary difference, social good or entrepreneurship, and the factor engagement regarding e.g. real-world relevance or interaction between teachers and students. Also, the university environment counted by internationality and diversity. THE and WSJ surveyed the alumni of 2012, 2013 and 2015 in addition to direct information and figures from the faculties.

Expert knowledge, practical skills and international experience

HHL already achieved 2nd place in Germany and 4th place in Europe for its graduates’ salaries in the world’s leading “Masters in Management” ranking by the Financial Times (FT) this year. Nevertheless, position #2 worlwide in THE ranking is a great achievement. Dean prof. Dr. Stephan Stubner praised the detailed approach by  THE and WSJ, which shows the unique qualities of the examined business schools.

“We owe this excellent position to our graduates who continue to benefit from the strong entrepreneurial spirit at HHL and the close international alumni network. We are proud to be recognized for our great mix of expert knowledge, practical skills and international experience. HHL’s unique M.Sc. program will be a crucial step for tomorrow’s executives and entrepreneurs; this is mirrored in the four dimensions of ‘THE ranking’.”
