Top 150 Colleges And Universities For Employability, 2018: Harvard, Caltech, MIT, Cambridge, And Stanford Tops

American and British institutions are struggling to keep pace with global universities in preparing workplace-ready graduates, according to The Times Higher Education’s (THE) Global Employability Rankings 2018. The United States, which has traditionally dominated the rankings, now has 34 institutions in the top 150, down from 55 in 2011.

Meanwhile, there are now only 10 British universities in the top 150, compared to 15 institutions in 2011, a new report on world rankings suggests. Germany has more than doubled its number of institutions in the top 150.

The rapid improvement of colleges and universities in the East and Southeast Asian institutions has seen countries – including South Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Singapore – rise up in the rankings. For example South Korea has leapt from 1 university in the top 150 in 2011 to six this year. The global employability ranking lists the top 150 institutions worldwide for employability, based on a worldwide survey of around 7,000 recruitment and international managers from significant businesses.

It is no surprise that Harvard University, California Institute of Technology (Caltech), or Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) snatched the top seats again.
