TAU First in Israel on Graduate Employability
Tel Aviv University produces Israel's most employable graduates, according to QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020
While many of the world’s top universities produce high-achieving graduates every year, employers frequently express concerns that academic institutions aren’t doing enough to prepare their students for the world of work. Students who are concerned about their future career prospects and wondering which universities are best-placed to help them succeed, may wish to take a look at QS Graduate Employability Rankings, "designed to provide the world’s students with a unique tool by which they can compare university performance in terms of graduate employability outcomes and prospects."
Tel Aviv University ranked first among Israeli universities in the 2020 rankings and in the 111-120 range internationally.
The score of each institution is comprised of five carefully-chosen indicators:
1. Employer reputation (30%) - based on almost 45,000 responses to the QS Employer Survey, and asks employers to identify those institutions from which they source the most competent, innovative, effective graduates.
2. Alumni outcomes (25%) - QS have analyzed more than 40,000 of the world’s most innovative, creative, wealthy, entrepreneurial, and/or philanthropic individuals to establish which universities are producing world-changing individuals.
3. Partnerships with employers per faculty (25%) - This indicator comprises two parts: First, it establishes which universities are collaborating successfully with global companies to produce citable, transformative research and second, it considers work placement-related partnerships
4. Employer/student connections (10%) - This indicator looks at the number of individual employers who have been actively present on a university’s campus over the past twelve months, providing students with an opportunity to network and acquire information.
5. Graduate employment rate (10%) - Involves measuring the proportion of graduates (excluding those opting to pursue further study or unavailable to work) in full or part time employment within 12 months of graduation.
