Emerging Employability University Ranking

The ideal university: the perfect university according to international recruiters

For a third consecutive year the French consulting group RH Emerging in partnership with the German polling institute Trendence interviewed more than 5000 top recruiters in 20 different countries. The result of this research allows to establish a ranking of what are considered the best universities in terms of employability at the moment and to hear their idea of a perfect university.

But this is not yet another ranking of the best universities. This time the international recruiters not only establish a classification but above all give their opinion on what an ideal university should look like. The panel is made up by the biggest recruiting companies of 20 countries where 90% of the world's students can be found; it also contains recruiters from countries which do not often figure in international HR surveys such as India and Turkey. "Having described in 2012 the ideal profile for a young graduate, this year we have chosen to ask the recruiters to put forward their idea of what a perfect university might look like and to establish a table league of the universities that produce what would be the most employable young graduate" says Sandrine Belloc, director of Emerging Associates, the French consulting group that initiated this research.


Surprises and confirmations

The top of the league of the best universities does not differ very much from the more traditional rankings like the Shanghai or the QS rankings since it is above all the reputation of a university which is still considered for about 30% of those concerned to be the most important element in their appraisal. Inevitably, the famous American and British universities take the first 9 places (Harvard comes in second in this league table while Oxford takes first place, and Cambridge third).
The German model does well too, if to a lesser proportion - 8 universities are in the league, with the University of Munich placed in 11th place . Surprising are the spectacular performances of some smaller northern European countries who manage to place quite a number of their universities in the league such as the Netherlands (5), Switzerland (5), and the Scandinavian countries (6). What these countries have in common is a strong emphasis on a practical education with tight links to the business world.

Noted already in last year's report, and confirmed in this year's appraisal, is the breakthrough of a number of Chinese universities (5 noted with 2 in the top 50) while universities from other Asian countries make their first appearance: 3 from Hong Kong, 2 from Singapore, and 2 from South Korea. Noteworthy too is in this respect the development of India which goes from one to three universities with a very strong performance from the Indian Institute of Science .

"In a general way, those universities that specialise in business tend do well which is understandable but what is evident in a number of countries is that the universities that do best are those that have managed to adapt themselves to recruiters' expectations - irrespective of their specializations " underlines Sandrine Belloc. Apart from universities teaching theory, recruiters insist strongly on the benefits of students taking up internships during their time at university.


The crucial criteria: employability

Opinions on the various systems of higher education, expectations, strong points, possible axes of improvement, the quality of young graduates, how to define a perfect university… This qualitative report will supply interesting answers to all these questions.

First remark: recruiters on the whole appear generally satisfied with the way the different university systems function. Unsurprisingly it is the reputation and the universities' results that remains of the essence in evaluating the quality of young graduates. Another important point is the strength of the connection between the university and the world of business, a given fact in countries such as Germany, Switzerland and the Scandinavian countries.

In India or the US, the homogeneity of the recruiters' expectations in respect to universities predominates in spite of the obvious cultural differences that exist between these two countries. "With very few exceptions, most notably of which is Japan, a rather atypical country where recruiters remain largely dissatisfied with the graduates produced by the university system, expectations are on the whole rather similar" notes Sandrine Belloc.

In line with last year's results, this year's international report confirms "employability" (in more than 40% of cases) to be the most important criteria in the eyes of international recruiters. 46,6 % of those questioned even consider that in order to improve students' capabilities business should be involved in deciding what courses a university's programme should contain. Everywhere recruiters dream of a young graduate capable of adapting his or her theoretical knowledge and specialist practical know-how to a given situation. Unequivocably (up to 50%), the 2013 report underlines the importance of the university teaching students proper communication skills, how to engage in team work, and work under pressure and in different challenging situations. Even before know-how and expertise, the recruiters place most emphasis (8,1 on a scale of 10) on the candidate's personality for his or her success within a company!
