CIIS: Ranked #1 for research excellence in German-speaking countries and Top3 in Europe

Institute at the Faculty of Management, Economics and Social Sciences boasts significant publications in leading journals

The current AIS 8 ranking of the Association of Information Systems puts the Cologne Institute for Information Systems (CIIS) in first place in the German-speaking world for academic research. In a European comparison, CIIS now shares third place with the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, and the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, and is ranked 33rd worldwide as of January 2022, placing it in the top 100 worldwide.

The ranking is based on the number of research publications in eight leading academic journals in the field of information systems from 2018 to 2022.

The CIIS at the Faculty of Economics and Social Sciences at the University of Cologne brings together research groups led by Professors Gloor, Ketter, Rosenkranz, Schoder, Seidel and Weinmann. With challenging research topics such as artificial intelligence, digital transformation, digital innovation and sustainability, it has been one of the world's leading research institutions for Information Systems since its foundation.

The Institute's Master's programme in ‘Information Systems’ offers an interdisciplinary approach with three focal points: Business Analytics and Data Science, Digital Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Digital Sustainable Society, which provides students with practical and theoretical tools to address current societal challenges in business, society and research. CIIS has recently expanded its offering with the brand-new Master's programme ‘Business Analytics & Econometrics’. This programme offers a unique blend of traditional analytics (e.g. statistics, econometrics, optimization, simulation) and modern analytical approaches (e.g. machine learning and artificial intelligence) and applies these approaches to business, management and entrepreneurship.
