French consultancy Emerging and Times Higher Education (THE), the trusted global data partner for higher education, have today announced the release of the Employability Rankings 2020, the latest in a 10-year study by Emerging into the most employable study locations for higher education students around the world.

A ten-year study by French consultancy Emerging and published by THE, shows rapid global diversification of top universities when measured by employability. Outside of their elite institutions, UK and US universities have declined in terms of employability.

Germany, mainland China, South Korea, and India are the most progressive performers for employability over the last decade.

India saw similar successes to that of mainland China and South Korea, as it became one of the top 15 (15th) most employable countries or regions in the world (23rd in 2010). As well as increasing its representation in the top 250 (4 in 2019, 6 in 2020), a notable strong performance is evident from the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi, which first ranked 149th in 2014 and now ranks 27th in 2020, a microcosm of India’s success story in the past 10 years.

Jamie Ramacciotti, Head of Student Content, THE, commented: “Employability represents the return of investment on education for many students and their families, and it can be a critical part of the decision-making process as students decide where and what to study.  Students want to feel confident that the investment of both time and money in a degree program will make them a strong candidate for jobs post-graduation. The latest Employability Rankings show that students have a wide range of choice when it comes to study destinations that will help power the early years of their career. While the elite institutions of the US and UK remain right at the top of the tree, Australia, Canada, and many others offer a first-class education if employability is your primary goal.”

Sandrine Belloc, Managing Partner, Emerging, added: “Employability is increasingly challenging traditional drivers of university performance with a variety of aspects and indicators that are becoming more important, such as digitalisation, specialisation, and soft skills. The combined effects of high employability needs of employers, as well as the ramifications of the COVID-19 crisis, have led to 80% of our survey participants suggesting a radical review of the university education approach is necessary. Students and parents are considering employability more seriously when it comes to deciding where to study. Whether universities choose to measure success in this way could be decisive for the future of higher education.”
