Are you a student in high school who's still unsure of which university to go to? Well, if employer reputation is a top priority for you, there are certain Canadian universities that you might want to consider.
QS Top Universities, an analyst site, recently released a Graduate Employability Ranking report that lists the top most employable schools in the world. The ranking includes as many as 300 institutions and is based on five key parameters - employer reputation (30%), alumni outcomes (20%), employer partnerships (25%), employer-student connections (15%), and graduate employment rate (10%). For more details on each parameter, visit their website here.
The top 5 schools in the world weren't much of a surprise - Stanford, MIT, Tsinghua, Sydney and Cambridge took the top spots. However, 6 Canadian universities managed to make the top 100, which is a great achievement.
