Some universities are clearly ahead of others regards to graduate employability rankings like all other years for 2020 as well. Employability is a crucial and sustainable skill for graduates must obtain to meet the professional need in the long run. We will describe the QS University ranking here.
QS Global higher education think-tank QS Cocurelli Symonds has announced the names of the top five universities in the world for graduate employment. The 2020 QS Graduate Employability Rankings provide authentic, distinctive, multivariate data about the relationship between university choice and career outcomes. Doing so meets the growing student demand for information about the potential employment benefits they can offer in their education. This article will be sharing the Graduate Employability Rankings 2020 conducted and released by QS.
Graduate Employability Rankings 2020 by QS
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is number one. Stanford University is second and the University of California Los Angeles is third. The overall QS World University Rankings of the QS and the ranking between these practices are marked by significant differences. In particular, Asia’s top universities outperform top institutions in continental Europe. So the rankings prove that there is no perfect parallel between the results of a university’s outstanding reputation and outstanding pastor and student life.
To explore university-employment relationships, QS uses a unique five-metric approach that earns the respect of every organization among 5,3 employers worldwide, with 2,700 highly successful individuals, institutional industry partnerships, employer attendance on campus and rates with position-integrated graduate employment.

The QS Graduate Employment Rankings is a fancy exercise designed to provide students with a unique tool in the world that allows them to compare university performance in terms of graduation hiring results and prospects.
Each organization’s score is composed of five carefully-selected indicators. All metrics used are currently unique to the QS Graduate Employability Ranking, excluding employer reputation. The indicators and key procedural enhancements introduced this year are described below:
Employer reputation (30%)
QS traditionally incorporates the reputation of being a key performance area in all its ranking practices. Of course, this metric takes the leading role in a ranking focused solely on recruitment.
Employer reputation metrics are based on approximately 45,000 responses to QS recruitment surveys, and employers are asked to identify the companies from which they seek the most skilled, innovative, effective graduates. The QS employer survey is also one of the largest in the world.
Alumni Result (25%)
A university that values its graduates’ careers creates successful alumni. Here, QS has identified the alma mater of prominent individuals in more than 220 high-achieving lists, measuring each desired outcome at a specific step in each life. In total, QoS analyzed more than 40,000 of the world’s most innovative, creative, wealthy, entrepreneurial and / or philanthropic individuals in order to establish universities in the world to create dynamic individuals. To ensure higher contemporary relevance, higher weights are applied to the focus list of young profiles. Likewise, undergraduate degrees carry more weight than undergraduates, as it is hypothesized that the establishment of a person’s employment becomes more constructive in the early stages of the higher education process.
Partnering with employers per faculty (25%)
This index is made up of two parts. First, it uses LJV’s Scopus database to establish that universities are successfully collaborating with companies worldwide to produce successful, transformational research. Individual companies producing two or more supporting papers over a five-year period (2013-2017) are included in the calculation. This year’s ranking is for the University’s cooperation with Fortune and Forbes’ top 2,000 leading international companies.
Second, it considers workplace-related partnerships that are reported by firms and approved by the QS research team.
Both statistics are adjusted to account for the number of faculty at each university, and are then combined into a composite index.
Employer / Student Connection (10%)
This index includes a combination of the number of independent employers who have been active on a university campus for the past twelve months, allowing motivated students to network and gain information. Employer attendance also increases students’ opportunities to participate in career-initiating internships and research opportunities. This ‘active presence’ can participate in career fairs, organization presentations or any other self-promotion activity.
This resource is adjusted by the number of students, accounting for the size of each institution.
Graduate Employment Rate (10%)
This index is the simplest, but essential to understanding how successful universities are in achieving career proficiency. This involves measuring the proportion of graduates (excluding those who choose to pursue further studies or are unavailable for work) within the full or part-time job within 12 months of graduation. To calculate the score, we consider the difference between the rate of each institution and the average in the country in which they are located. To reduce significant inconsistencies, the results are adjusted by the limit between the maximum and minimum values recorded in each country or region. It is for this fact that any university’s ability to increase employment will be influenced by the economic performance of the country in which they are located.
Whenever QS was not able to collect data directly from an organization or a reliable source, the conservative estimate was used for records. This calculation is based on a record from an organization based in the relevant country or region.
