LONDON, Sept. 23, 2021 — QS Quacquarelli Symonds, global higher education analysts, have released their annual deep dive into the relationship between university choice and graduate employment outcomes. The result is the 2022 QS Graduate Employability Rankings: an independent list of the world’s top institutions for career-focused students.

Massachusetts Institute of Technology is named global employability leader, achieving perfect scores in three of the five indicators used by QS to compile the table.

The QS Graduate Employability Rankings offer a more granular comparative examination of universities’ work to cultivate propitious pathways into high-quality employment. QS Employability rates Universities on partnerships with employers (including internships), the number of sectoral leaders among their alumni, the frequency with which employers are present on campus, and a location-adjusted graduate employment rate.

As the world recovers from the impact of the pandemic, the importance of graduating with the skills and qualities required by modern employers has never been greater.

Each of the universities ranked here has demonstrated an ability to produce graduates with the ‘soft skills’ required for the modern workplace. However, given the fierce competition for graduate roles worldwide, students should be seriously considering how their university can prepare them adequately for full-time employment by connecting them with global employers and ensuring they develop the necessary skills and knowledge.

If you’re concerned about your future career prospects and wondering which universities are competent to help you succeed, this QS ranking is a great place to start.

Highlights include:

Ben Sowter, Director of Research, QS, said: “Students are becoming increasingly conscious of the competitiveness of the global graduate jobs market and the ever-increasing financial costs of their educational investment. So such independent data must be available to them for making evidence-based decisions about their educational futures. Australian institutions perform better at the top than British ones, and various universities in Latin America and Asia outperform their overall rank. So it is clear that it is valuable to shine a unique light on outstanding employability performance - one that rewards institutions successfully fulfilling this critical aspect of their mission.”
