Best Southeast Asian Universities for Graduate Employability
Featuring 495 universities, the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2018 provides vital information about how successful today’s students are at securing a top job after graduation.
The QS Graduate Employability Rankings is an innovative exercise designed to provide the world’s students with a unique tool by which they can compare university performance in terms of graduate employability outcomes and prospects.
Each institution’s score is comprised of five carefully-chosen indicators. Employer Reputation excepted, all metrics used are, currently, unique to the QS Graduate Employability Rankings. These indicators and the main methodological enhancements introduced this year are described below:
- Employer reputation (30%); QS traditionally includes the Employer Reputation as a key performance area in all its ranking exercises. Of course, this metric adopts a leading role in a ranking focused solely on employability.
- Alumni Outcomes (25%)
