    The latest ranking by the Financial Times, which assesses Master in Management programs from universities around the globe, has awarded top positions to the education offered at HHL Leipzig Graduate School of Management both in Europe and worldwide.

    HHL graduates were ranked 3rd in Europe and 7th worldwide for their salaries (determined three years after graduation). HHL's Career Service was also ranked very high, achieving 7th place worldwide. In the global ranking, which includes a total of 90 universities, HHL came in 2nd in Germany and 23rd worldwide. This means that the Leipzig-based business school improved even more compared to the previous year and finished ahead of a large number of reputable international universities.

    Comments HHL Dean Prof. Dr. Stephan Stubner, an HHL alumnus himself,
    "We are thrilled to see we improved our position in the latest Financial Times ranking even more. We are able to offer our students one the world's leading Master programs. Especially in times like these, it is important for young people to enjoy high-quality and widely respected education. Companies have let us know that they are thankful to be able to find high-powered and responsible junior leaders at a renowned university, particularly in times of crises. Achieving top ranks once again confirms our approach and motivates us in our daily pursuit of excellence in instruction and research.”

    The FT Global Masters in Management Ranking 2020 is considered to be one of the most comprehensive and significant of its kind internationally for Master in Management programs. The ranking combines data from two surveys. One polls alumni from the universities who graduated three years ago. The other one uses information provided by the universities themselves, such as diversity of the student body or internationality of the programs.

    "HHL was the best decision I could make as it provided me with the tools for my current position as a business development specialist. With its well-structured curriculum, a vast choice of student initiatives and its excellent Career Service, HHL was a key factor for success in my personal development. The friendships I formed at the school continue to flourish."

    Richard Schramm, HHL graduate
    (currently: Business Development Customer Center Porsche Leipzig GmbH)

    "HHL was the best choice for me as it combines a great education with tremendous opportunities. Besides close ties to alumni, the university provides numerous chances to get in touch with prospective employers. Especially the group projects with companies and the contact with top consulting firms through the career service helped me on my way to a career in consulting."
