Jumping up 19 ranks, HHL - Leipzig Graduate School of Management has reached 19th place in the world's leading "Masters in Management" ranking conducted by Financial Times (FT). HHL's Master Program in Management (M.Sc.) was only listed for the second time ever and has already scored 3rd place in Germany and 19th place internationally, outpacing a large number of well-renowned schools. The ranking certifies the oldest business school in the German-speaking area with a top rank for its M.Sc. program with regard to the salaries obtained by its alumni (4th place internationally). In the assessment of focal points, HHL reached the first place in the field of "Entrepreneurship". HHL reached the top 10 in "General Management", "Finance" and "Marketing".
The FT "Masters in Management" ranking covering 65 business schools is considered one of the world's most extensive and significant high score tables for Master programs focusing on General Management.
The ranking uses data from two surveys. One questions the university alumni who graduated three years ago about their current situation. The other collects data at the schools themselves. Assessment criteria for the ranking are among other things salary and career figures as well as internationality and the structure of the school or program.
HHL Dean Professor Andreas Pinkwart says: "We are beyond thrilled about the significant leap forward which we have managed to achieve within the most significant international ranking for Master programs. We are very proud to have reached the first rank worldwide in the category of 'Entrepreneurship'. HHL has developend into a truly innovative business school with over 120 start-ups founded by our alumni. We regard today's position among the top twenty Master programs in Management worldwide as an incentive to aim for the top 10 in Europe in the next few years."
M.Sc. alumnus Christoph Tegeler (29) says: "The M.Sc. program at HHL not only trained me for working at a bank but also prepared me for the tasks in an international environment in an excellent manner. I found the internationality of the program and the high proportion of students from abroad to be particularly beneficial as they made my time at HHL a 'case study' for my future professional life." Mr. Tegeler, who presently works for Deutsche Bank in London continues: "The terrific score achieved by HHL in the ranking makes me glad as it will further increase HHL's awareness level, especially outside Germany."
Martin Schlichte (30), founder and CEO of Lecturio GmbH, a market place for online courses, says: "The excellent basics and insight into to the entrepreneurial scene which I obtained during my time at HHL pay off ever single day in our Lecturio.de start-up. HHL not only offers the content but also practice-oriented teachers and highly motivated fellow students who make working on a high level a habit. The exchange with HHL entrepreneurs operating successfully worldwide is another priceless advantage. HHL scoring first place in the 'Entrepreneurship' category in the international FT 'Masters in Management' ranking is a fantastic confirmation of what I experienced while studying at Germany's oldest business school."
Wenin Lu-Bouchard (29), born in China, working for Deutsche Post DHL in Bonn today, says: "The Master program at HHL taught me just the right mix of theoretical skills and practical experience. HHL's excellent reputation and the school's outstanding network opened many doors for me leading to some magnificent career opportunities.
