Campus placement plays a vital role in deciding the prominence of a university. What kind of companies come for placements and how employable the fresh graduates are adds to the credibility of an educational institute. Global University Employability Ranking 2018, published by Times Higher Education (THE), lists the top 150 institutions for employability based on a survey of 7,000 major employers around the world. The list highlights top institutes that produce employable students.

India’s best

The list includes three Indian institutes — the Indian Institute of Science (IISc), Bangalore, at 28th position globally while the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Delhi, jumped 92 ranks higher from last year and made it to 53rd most employable institute in the world. Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Ahmedabad, made a debut in the list making a mark at 144th position.

Rise of the Dragon

Despite the presence of three institutes from India and a climb of almost 100 points, India still lags behind China. The Land of Drangons has seven universities in the list, including Peking University at the 19th spot. The year was great for Asia as closer to home destinations — Japan and Singapore— made it to top 10 institutes. The University of Tokyo, Japan, secured 9th and National University of Singapore secured 10th spot. 

Fall of the Brit

The western education institutes continue to find place in the top 10 list, with United States of America (USA) leading with top three most employable institutes — Harvard University, California Institute of Technology, Massachussetts Institute of Technology, respectively.

British universities struggle to make it in the top list, thanks to Brexit, even as Cambridge university was ranked at 4th spot. Germany, Singapore and Japan made a mark in the top 10, while the UK had five universities listed in top 50.

Germany, on the other hand has almost doubled the number of institute in the list from 9 to 12 this year. Among the most favourite destinations of foreign students, both Canada had Australia registered have nine universities each on the list.
