Top 150 universities in the world for global employability revealed

30 November 2015


The Global Employability University Ranking 2015 has been revealed, with 12 UK universities featuring in the top 150.

The ranking was designed and commissioned by French human resources consulting agency Emerging and carried out by the German market research firm Trendence. US universities feature in seven of the top ten spots and 39 of the top 150, while 12 UK universities feature overall, with Imperial College London joining traditional powerhouses Oxford and Cambridge in the top 15.

The ranking was created from the combined votes of 2,200 recruiters and 2,400 managing directors of international companies or subsidiaries across 20 countries. Research also included a domestic survey which asked British employers to rate the quality of graduates of UK universities for employability. In it, Oxford placed first, Cambridge second, St Andrews seventh, Bristol ninth and Edinburgh 10th.
