Some Interesting Findings from the Survey:

  • The universities that top the QS World Rankings and the Shanghai Rankings also top the ‘Global Employability Rankings’. The usual stalwarts - the University of Oxford, Harvard University, University of Cambridge, Stanford University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology head the list.
  • Students are attracted by the ‘big brand-names’ evidently they are the toughest institutions to get admitted into as well.
  • Affordable on-campus accommodation with a good meal-plan is a feature that international students consider important.
  • The assistance offered for international students starting from the orientation program to special English training classes and medical and counselling support are other key-factors.
  • Job-oriented courses and the employability quotient of the student based on the courses opted for play a major role in the determination of these rankings. Institutions offering dedicated career assistance for both local and international students score higher!
  • More institutions from Asia - specifically China, South Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong are improving their infrastructure and teaching facilities to climb the global rankings steadily.
