The Global Employability University Ranking 2015, designed and commissioned by French human resources consulting agency Emerging and carried out by the German market research firm Trendence, has 12 UK universities, one fewer than last year, in the top 150 list, with Imperial College London joining the universities of Cambridge and Oxford in the top 15.
The list is dominated by US institutions, however, which claim seven of the top 10 spots and 39 places in the overall top 150. After the UK and the US, France is the most-represented country in the table with 10 institutions, including three in the top 25.
The highest-ranked university outside the US and the UK is Canada’s University of Toronto in 10th place, followed by Germany’s Technical University of Munich in 11th and Japan’s University of Tokyo in 12th.
The ranking was created from the combined votes of 2,200 recruiters and 2,400 managing directors of international companies or subsidiaries across 20 countries. View the full methodology here.
