For the current university ranking by “WirtschaftsWoche“ (issue 19 of 3 May 2019), the consulting company Universum asked Human Resources managers of German companies with 10 - 1,000 employees from which universities they preferred to recruit their employees – in other words, which universities, in their view, best prepared their students to suit their companies’ needs. The ranking thus deliberately concentrates on the practical relevance of degree programs.
In Computer Science and Business Administration and Engineering, in the opinion of the HR managers HsKA is second only to one other university of applied sciences nationwide when it comes to preparing its students for the profession and thus for their careers in industry. In Electrical Engineering and in Business Information Systems HsKA ranked third, and in Mechanical Engineering, it achieved seventh place. With placements in the top 10 in five out of six disciplines surveyed for this ranking, HR managers count HsKA amongst the top 3 universities of applied sciences in Germany overall.
“These top placements, which are very much in line with previous years, have confirmed yet again the high quality of our degree programs. This is largely due to the way our teaching goes hand in hand with our applied research, opening up the best career opportunities for our graduates worldwide.”
