The QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2018 will be published on September 12.

When choosing what and where to study, one of the most important factors for all students is knowing the degree and university they’ve chosen will lead to a lucrative, successful graduate career. Given this, the Graduate Employability Rankings is arguably one of the most important rankings available to students.

Now featuring more universities than ever before (500 in total), this year’s ranking features an improved methodology. The same five indicators have been used to assess universities (employer reputation, alumni outcomes, employer partnerships, employer-student connections and graduate employment rates), but the weighting for alumni outcomes has been increased to 25%. This ensures this year’s ranking places greater emphasis on how successfully universities produce talented graduates. Employer-student connections, which measures the presence of employers on campus at events such as careers fairs, has been reduced in weighting to 10%.

Last year, Stanford University was crowned the best university in the world for graduate employability. Having been ranked second in the world in the QS World University Rankings 2018 earlier this year, Stanford will be hoping to retain its crown, although several top universities (including many in the US) are breathing down its neck.
