Handelsblatt Ranking

The German business magazine «Handelsblatt» produces a bi-annual ranking of  economists in the German-speaking countries. It is based on the number of scientific publications in relevant journals, which are categorized and weighted according to their impact and relevance. In this way it measures research output on an individual level as well as comparing the different universities.

In the Handelsblatt-Ranking 2017, the Department of Economis is by far the number one and hosts a considerable number of experts: 10 of the top 100 professors teach in Zurich and 7 out of 100 in the category of under-40s.
