Awards & Accreditations

The faculty of Business and Economics at RWTH Aachen University is one of the few faculties in Germany to bear the international seal of approval of the renowned accreditation agency Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). The first accreditation of the faculty took place in April 2011, the successful re-accreditation in 2016.

With the re-accreditation the AACSB praised the high quality standard in teaching and research, the innovative ability of the faculty as well as the commitment of the teachers. This applies in particular to the extensive e-learning offerings. Worldwide, only 5% of the economic science faculties are AACSB accredited. In Germany, only nine other faculties or business schools meet the high international standards of the AACSB.


Through close cooperation between universities, research institutions, companies and the city administration, Aachen has developed into one of the most important high-tech locations in Europe. The scientific competence available in Aachen has attracted renowned international companies and research institutions such as Ericsson, Ford, Philips, Takeda Pharma and Microsoft. However, Aachen is also a dynamic hub for start-ups, spin-offs and entrepreneurs dealing with new technologies. Recent examples are the StreetScooter, an electric delivery vehicle jointly developed with Deutsche Post DHL, and the e.Go Life, an affordable electric car. In addition, a Center for Entrepreneurship has been established to support students and researchers in their start-ups. The RWTH Aachen Campus therefore provides a unique platform for science and industry alike.

Student lifestyle

With almost 260,000 inhabitants, Aachen has a lot to offer in terms of quality of life. The atmosphere of the city is visibly shaped by the more than 50,000 students at Aachen’s universities. For the large number of students, Aachen offers a lively culture with many restaurants, cafés, museums and clubs. The increasing number of students who decide to enrol at the RWTH Aachen University testifies to the pleasant and charming place Aachen is for living.

The most important criteria I looked for when deciding for a program were the possibilities of customization and individualization. As a distance learner, I am highly satisfied with the flexibility that the MME-TIME program provides me with. However, this certainly doesn't mean that the modules are easy-going and all forgiving.
