Newswise — Graduates from the National University of Singapore (NUS) are enjoying better career prospects and continue to be among the world’s most employable, a global survey of recruiters published today has confirmed. NUS has jumped six spots to be placed 10th in the latest Global University Employability Ranking, which is produced by French HR consultancy, Emerging, and published by Times Higher Education. It is the only Singapore university in the global top 10, and among Asia’s top two universities for employment.

Now in its eighth year, the Global University Employability Ranking measures how universities perform on graduate employability. The global annual survey was conducted with 7,000 recruiters and managing directors of international companies from 22 countries who casted around 75,000 votes for universities they felt were the best for graduate employability. Together they represent employers that have recruited more than 250,000 young graduates in the past 12 months.

NUS President Professor Tan Eng Chye said, “We are delighted that our graduates have been ranked top 10 globally by employers around the world. NUS strives to ensure that our graduates are well-prepared for the digital economy, with deep expertise in and across disciplines, core life skills as well as a growth mindset that will position them well for a world of disruption and change.

Students at NUS have the advantage of customising their learning journeys from a comprehensive and holistic suite of educational pathways and initiatives that range from global study opportunities, residential living and learning experiences, to industry internships and immersion in entrepreneurial hubs in Asia and beyond. We’re also the first in the world to enroll our students for 20 years from the point of undergraduate admission. This comprehensive lifelong approach to education enables NUS to be a lifelong learning partner to our graduates as they upskill and reskill in their careers.”
