Compare these rankings with the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2014-2015
The University of Cambridge has replaced the University of Oxford at the top of a global ranking that measures how universities perform on graduate employability.
The Global Employability University Survey 2014 has 13 UK institutions making the top 150 of the list, with University College London and Imperial College London joining the Oxbridge institutions in the top 15. The list is dominated, however, by US institutions, which claim six of the top 10 spots.
The results, compiled by French human resources consulting group Emerging Associates along with Trendence, a German polling and research institute, are based on surveys of 2,500 international recruiters in 20 countries.
“On the whole, the results of this year’s survey and the ensuing ranking confirm that ‘global’ is the key word for tomorrow’s university”, said Laurent Dupasquier, associate director of Emerging Associates. “The top tier players, [the] global brands – which all tend to be American and British – continue to lead, while other Anglo-Saxon universities, those that are mainly regional players, tend to fare less well, with an average of five places lost in comparison with last year.”
