Why is there no ranking of master programmes?Currently the transition to the Bologna system is not yet completed in Germany. Hence many Master programmes have only started recently and only a few students are enrolled as yet. We cannot therefore compile a nationwide ranking. A first study related to master programmes has been conducted for business administration and the results were published in autumn 2008. The aim is to provide a continuous ranking of master programmes for all subjects that are so far included in the UniversityRanking.
