In addition, the faculty’s master’s degree programmes ranked at the top in terms of "timely completion of the master’s degree" criteria in business administration, economics, and business administration. The faculty also ranked at the top in terms of being an "internationally-oriented master’s programme", "research funds per researcher" (both in business administration and economics).
