The number one institution on CEOWORLD magazine’s list of the world’s best universities with internationally employable graduates was the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
As it turns out, MIT graduates are among the most employable in the world, followed by Harvard, Stanford, Caltech, and Yale, according to the rankings.
CEOWORLD magazine, the world’s leading business publication that ranks colleges and universities, recently released its list of universities that produce graduates most sought-after by employers.
In forming its rankings, magazine used results from a survey of 42,000 hiring managers from large global companies in 52 countries and a 2nd panel of 34,000 senior executives and mid-level managers around the world.
Each company had more than 2,500 employees and recruited more than 25 graduates a year. Graduates from American universities dominated this year’s results. Of the top 10 universities on the list, 6 are based in the U.S. – including the top 5—while U.S. institutions make up 27 of the top 100.
