7 Indian Universities have featured in the top 250 institutes with IIT Delhi followed by Indian Institute of Science, Bengaluru (61), IIT Bombay (97), IIM Ahmedabad (162), IIT Kharagpur (170), Amity University (225), and Bangalore University (249) in the list.
“Indian universities see a clear rise for the first time in years due to strengths in subject specialization and graduate skills. IIT Delhi holds on to 27th place and all other universities ranked last year (six total) climb an average of 20 places in the table. Bangalore University (249th) enters the ranking for the first time,” said an official statement.
According to the official statement, the ranking is based on a framework of six key drivers identified by businesses as the main contributors to creating employable graduates:
- Academic Excellence: research output, quality of teaching staff
- Digital performance: innovative learning methods, specialist training on digital jobs
- Focus on Work: entrepreneurial environment, relevant work experience as part of the curriculum
- Soft skills and digital literacy
- Internationalism: international curriculum/staff
- Specialization: up-to-date technical or business expertise, relevant specialized research
Sandrine Belloc, Managing Partner, Emerging commented: “The annual GEURS employability ranking specifically addresses the student need to identify those universities that offer the best prospects for future employment. It provides them with the reasons behind recruiters’ choices and shows that indicators such as digitalization, specialization or soft skills are increasingly important, much more so than the prestige of a university’s name. The resulting rankings provides a diverse range of universities for students to consider when thinking about who to invest in for their higher education to help shape their personal path into a successful and rewarding career.”
