Once again, this year’s Handelsblatt Ranking for Business Schools places Kühne Logistics University (KLU) in Hamburg at the very top. KLU ranks no. 3 in research output per professor among all universities in Germany and has the highest research output of all private business schools in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
KLU achieved a top rating in the five most important criteria CHE Center for Higher Education examined in its current master’s student rankings for business administration. KLU students who responded to the survey gave the overall learning environment, academic program, supervision, and international orientation the top rating of very good. They gave the same rating to the degree program’s relevance to academics and practice, the library, and the building and facilities.
KLU is ranked among the top universities within a field of over 120 institutions. This ranking has been achieved even though the newly-founded university has only a fraction of the professors of other well-established universities. When the research performance per professor is taken as a yardstick, a truer picture of the research strength of KLU is presented: KLU is in seventh place – on a par with long-established faculties such as those at the universities of Mannheim, Munich, and Cologne.
