QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020
LONDON, Sept. 18, 2019 /CNW/ -- Global higher education think-tank QS Quacquarelli Symonds have named the world's top 500 universities for nurturing graduate employability. The 2020 QS Graduate Employability Rankings offer authoritative, independent, multivariate data regarding the relationship between university choice and career outcomes. In so doing, they meet growing student demand for information about the potential employment benefits their education might offer.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is number-one. Stanford University is 2nd, and the University of California at Los Angeles is 3rd. The ranking is characterised by significant disparities between QS's overall QS World University Rankings and this exercise. In particular, Asia's top universities outperform continental Europe's leading institutions. The rankings therefore demonstrate that there is no perfect parallel between an outstanding reputational and research university, and an outstanding nurturer of student career outcomes.
To explore the university-employability relationship, QS use a unique five-metric method that captures each institution's regard among 44,000 employers worldwide, alma mater data from 29,000 highly successful individuals, institutional industry partnerships, employer presence on campus, and location-adjusted graduate employment rate.
