U-Multirank: Top Grades for Jacobs University

Since 2014, the independent, EU-funded U-Multirank gives students a new possibility to compare universities in five broad dimensions: teaching and learning, research, knowledge transfer, international orientation, and regional engagement. In this year’s evaluation, Jacobs University made it into the top five universities in Germany.

All in all, 1,479 universities from 99 countries took part in the ranking, and more than 100,000 students participated on a worldwide scale. Furthermore, U-Multirank is the first international ranking which considers all types of colleges, not just universities.

U-Multirank compares not only the institutions as such, but also individual subjects. Evaluated this year were the fields of biology, computer science, electrical engineering, and mathematics.

CHE-Ranking: Top Results for Jacobs University

In the CHE university rankings, the private English-language university got top ratings in the two degree programs Economics and Industrial Engineering.

In Industrial Engineering, the students are very satisfied with the support received from instructors, and in the category “international orientation,” JU is also in the top group. Economics is also in the top group in the categories “course offerings,” “scientific publications,” and “degree in appropriate time period.” In addition, the two degree programs also received top ratings for support at the start of a course of study.

“Internationality and individual support for our students are among the hallmarks of our university. They make an essential contribution to our high quality in research and teaching. We are very pleased that this is once again reflected so impressively in the CHE university rankings,” says University President Professor Katja Windt.

“The successes of our completely redesigned management courses represent important feedback for us. They show that the newly developed course offerings, including for example the ability to select among minors, and the extensive range of support offerings, are well accepted by our students,” emphasizes Professor Werner Nau, responsible Dean of Bachelor Programs.
