QS Times Global 200 Business Schools Report 2014/15

Publicado por: ​​QS Quacquarelli Symonds

The QS Global 200 Business Schools Report originated in the early 1990s as an alternative to business school rankings. At the heart of the report was a definitive list of 200 business schools from which employers prefer to recruit MBAs. The research was intended to be of use to MBA employers, prospective MBA students and institutions worldwide that are interested in international business education and recruitment trends.

For the 2014/15 report, QS has adopted a new methodology. The employability measure, based on our global survey of MBA employers, will now count for 85% of the final ranking. A second measure – academic reputation – based on a global faculty survey, will contribute 15% to the final ranking.

Global Employability University Ranking 2015 

Publicado por Times Higher Education

The Global Employability University Ranking 2015, designed and commissioned by French human resources consulting agency Emerging and carried out by the German market research firm Trendence.

Ranking that measures how universities perform on graduate employability.

The ranking was created from the combined votes of 2,200 recruiters and 2,400 managing directors of international companies or subsidiaries across 20 countries.

The online survey was completed between April and August 2015 by 2,287 recruiters from 21 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Singapore, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, the UK and the US. The countries were chosen on the basis that they are the main global players in higher education, accounting for more than 80 per cent of students worldwide, and have at least one internationally recognised university.

The ranking was created from the combined votes from two “panels”. For one panel, respondents from across the 21 countries were asked to indicate which institutions from a list of their local universities produced the most employable graduates. Companies could cast between three and 15 votes depending on how many of their country’s institutions were entered into the survey; Swiss recruiters, for instance, had just 11 universities to choose from, while US companies had 92. Companies that recruit internationally were also asked to vote for up to 10 universities in the world that, in their experience, produce the most employable graduates.

The second panel consisted of 2,400 managing directors of internationally recruiting companies (or subsidiaries) with more than 1,000 employees. Each cast a maximum of 10 votes for local or global universities. The ranking is based on the total number of votes each institution received.

Companies were also asked a series of questions about the characteristics they value in universities and graduates.
