Global Employability University Rankings 2013

Global Employability University Rankings 2013



Four Australian universities recently made it to the Top 150 list in an annual global ranking measuring university performance and graduates’ employability.

Australian National University (ANU) came in at 20th place, while Monash University placed at 33rd. University of Melbourne came in at 50th place, while University of New South Wales (UNSW) rounded up the list at 55th.

The list, compiled by French human resources consulting group Emerging Associates along with Trendence (a German polling and research institute), is based on responses from 2,700 recruiters in 20 countries. It differs from other rankings in that it doesn’t take into account academic criteria; it only seeks to represent the point of view of the market.

Sandrine Belloc, director of Emerging Associates, said that in addition to existing methodology, recruiters were asked to put forward “their idea of what a perfect university might look like”. The results sugggest that student internships are highly valued by employers.
