Universities producing the most employable graduates have been ranked by companies around the world in the Global University Employability Ranking 2023-24
Going to college or university is about more than just preparing for a career, but choosing the right institution and course can certainly improve your graduate prospects.
A global employability ranking, designed by the HR consultancy Emerging and published exclusively by Times Higher Education, reveals which universities the recruiters at top companies think are best at preparing students for the workplace and helping them to find work experience opportunities.
These 250 universities span 44 countries, from the US to Japan. Employers voted for institutions both in their own country and around the world, if they recruit internationally.

In some countries and regions, graduate jobs are not easy to come by, but in European countries such as France, Switzerland and Germany, professional experience is built into degree programmes.

Singapore, Japan and the UK each have an institution in the top 10, with Chinese and Swiss universities also appearing high in the ranking.

It’s no surprise that the California Institute of Technology – regarded as one of the world’s best universities – is a favourite among international employers. Students are admitted on the basis of strong interest and skills in maths, science and engineering.
Not only do Caltech students learn the fundamentals across a range of science and engineering subjects, they get to grips with the most innovative tools to address some of society’s most pressing challenges.
The student population is tiny compared with other colleges – it’s one of the smallest in the world, with just over 1,000 undergraduates and 1,200 postgraduates. This close community allows for good relationships between tutors and staff.
In addition to its world-leading courses, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers career-enhancing programmes for undergraduates, industry leaders and the general public.
Many companies have significant involvement in college courses and research, often spanning disciplines and lasting several years.
MIT students, faculty members and alumni play key roles in entrepreneurial innovations, including developing advanced computer networks, securing venture capital transactions and advancing biotechnology.
Stanford University is located in Pasadena, California, right next to the world-renowned Silicon Valley.
In total, companies founded by Stanford affiliates and alumni generate more than $2.7 trillion in annual revenues, which would be the 10th-largest economy in the world. These firms include Google, Nike, Netflix, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Instagram and Charles Schwab.
Stanford alumni have also founded non-profit organisations such as Kiva and SIRUM.
The University of Cambridge is one of the world’s best universities.
Its history stretches back to the 13th century, when it was founded by Oxford scholars taking refuge after conflicts with townspeople.
Now, its graduates are globally sought after, valued particularly for their specialist knowledge, gained as a result of the personal tuition that is unique to the universities of Oxford and Cambridge.
Harvard University is the oldest and arguably the most prestigious college in the United States, with a reputation for admitting and producing highly accomplished students.
More than 30 heads of state have studied at Harvard, and the university also counts 38 Nobel prizewinners and 48 Pulitzer winners among its alumni.
Like many institutions favoured by employers, Harvard has a long history of groundbreaking research and innovation.
Many students undertake extracurricular activities while studying, from sport to entrepreneurial endeavours, which equip them with the essential skills to succeed.
