The EUI ranked amongst the best according to the CHE ExcellenceRanking 2009

CHE EcellenceRanking 2009

The Department of Political and Social Sciences has distinguished itself for its international character and the optimal results obtained in its research.

The complete results of the survey| have been published in the German weekly newspaper Die Zeit.

The criteria for the selection by the Center for Higher Education Development are the high numbers of publications and citations, “highly cited books” as research indicators, student mobility, teaching staff mobility, and the number of projects in the Marie Curie research promotion programme of the EU.

What is special about the CHE ExcellenceRanking? It defines “stars” rather than ranking positions.  It is about detailed analysis rather than general ranking. The results of the research are deliberately not added together to give a total number of points.

The reason for this is that there is simply no “best” higher education institution, either for a single discipline, let alone for all disciplines. The ranking is intended for all students/researchers planning to earn a master or doctoral degree and who are looking for a suitable institution for their research.
