Soll man das Handelsblatt-Ranking BWL boykottieren?


  • Dilger, Alexander


Das Handelsblatt-Ranking BWL erschien 2012 zum zweiten Mal und wurde von über 300 Wissenschaftlern boykottiert. Nach Vorstellung des Rankings und der wichtigsten Argumente für den Boykott werden wesentliche Diskussionsbeiträge zu dem Ranking und Boykott präsentiert und kommentiert. Dabei zeigt sich, dass insbesondere die geringe praktische Bedeutung dieses Rankings gegen seinen Boykott spricht, für den diese Bedeutung übertrieben und durch den sie sogar etwas gesteigert wurde. Folglich sollte man das Handelsblatt-Ranking BWL besser detailliert kritisieren oder ignorieren statt boykottieren.
