University of Zurich – first in economics Ranking

UZH ranks first in WirtschaftsWoche's latest economics ranking.

No other university in the DACH region (Germany, Austria, and Switzerland) has achieved such a high-caliber research performance in economics over the past ten years as the University of Zurich. This is shown by an exclusive academic ranking compiled for the German business magazine WirtschaftsWoche by the Swiss Economic Institute KOF at ETH Zurich.

The receipt for success – Proximity to reality instead of living in an ivory tower. Florian Scheuer, Director of Zurich’s Department of Economics and UBS Foundation Professor sums it up: «As researchers, we have a duty to society.»
