This year’s Global University Employability Ranking 2018 published by British magazine THE and two Indian institutes – The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore and the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi have made it to the top 100 list.
Every year, a French HR Consultancy named Emerging conducts a survey to list out premiere institutes all around the world on the basis of the employability; and titled as Global University Employability Ranking, it is published by a London based THE magazine. The list is prepared after two different panels consisting of 7,000 respondents from 22 countries, and they can cast a total of 75,000 votes for the universities they felt were the best for graduate employability. And the voters cast their votes for institutes who have recruited more than 250,000 young graduates in the past year.
So the Global University Employability Ranking 2018 was published yesterday and two of India’s premiere institutes made it to the top 100 in the list. The list was topped by Harvard, by pushing the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) to 2nd rank for 2018 – followed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of Cambridge on third and fourth ranks respectively. The Indian Institute of Science (IISc) Bangalore secured the 28th position, keeping up with its standard – and Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Delhi jumped up to 53rd position from its 145th rank last year. Besides these two, Indian Institute of Management (IIM) Ahmedabad managed to make it to the employability list and stood at 144th rank.
The IIT Delhi administration believes that the phenomenal jump is a result of the “high-quality training IIT Delhi provides to its students” and their goal to “make students all rounded and teach them the ability to learn”. Besides this, IIT Delhi has been actively working on improving its overall quality by initiating immersion programmes so that students get direct exposure to actual problems in real world rather than studying them in books – which help their intellectually capability to be pushed to full extent.
