Private universities in the CHE university ranking

There are various rankings for evaluating colleges and universities. The best-known ranking for Germany is published every three years by the Center for Higher Education Development (CHE) in cooperation with ZEIT Online and also takes state-recognized private universities into account.

The CHE university ranking does not contain a general ranking of the best universities and colleges . Individual courses are evaluated according to specific categories and divided into three groups. These private universities have made it into the top group in selected categories in the current CHE university ranking in the fields of business administration , social work and STEM :
