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%).
