University rankings

CHE rankings

The university ranking published by the Centre for Higher Education (Centrum für Hochschulentwicklung, CHE) is a ranking of German universities and higher education institutions, including universities from other countries which offer courses taught in German. It is a subject-based and multi-perspective ranking, so rather than assessing the entire university, e.g. based on the attraction of third-party funding only, it ranks individual subject areas based on several different data sources. Every year only a part of the subjects included in the CHE ranking are examined. The FH Kufstein therefore takes part in a three-year cycle. The latest results are released in May and will be published here (in German only).

Industriemagazin rankings

The austrian magazine “Industriemagazin” carries out an annual survey of business managers and human resources managers who evaluate all dergree programs of universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschule, FH) in their country. Questions such as where managers find the best graduates, how highly qualified are they, and what salary recruiters are prepared to pay for FH graduates, form the basis of the data material which is then published each year. The latest results are usually released in March and will be published here (in German only).


Every year, the Universum Student Survey asks students about their career expectations and employers’ reputation. In 2014, 6,464 Austrian students took part in this survey and assessed, among other aspects, the image of the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences which utilizes the study results for benchmarking and to strategically further develop the university (in German only).


U-Multirank is a new multidimensional, user-driven approach to international ranking of higher education institutions. The Ranking allows users to create personalized rankings and identify a university’s strengths and weaknesses, or the aspects that most interest them (in German only).

In 2019 and 2020 the Kufstein University of Applied Sciences reaches a top position on the indicator ‘student mobility’.  


Benchmarks for employers and the employees of the future: The Kufstein University of Applied Sciences takes part in various rankings and surveys to utilize the resulting findings as information for benchmarking and to strategically further develop the university. The study trendence Graduate Barometer interviewed students and graduates about their professional ambitions. The individual report (published intern only) provides valuable information, for example, on what our students expect from their university. Since 2013 especially the knowledge transfer into the real job life was top listed.
