Performance and quality of university education

The perfect university according to international recruiters

The USA produces the best graduates, followed by the UK and Germany according to Emerging survey

For a third consecutive year the French consulting group RH Emerging in partnership with the German polling institute Trendence interviewed more than 5000 top recruiters in 20 different countries. The result of this research allows to establish a ranking of what are considered the best universities in terms of employability at the moment and to hear their idea of a perfect university.

The third annual Global Employability Survey, designed and commissioned by the French education consulting firm Emerging and carried out by the German market research firm Trendence, asked recruiters and senior international executives to profile an ideal university graduate — and the ideal university producing such graduates.

The United States still dominates the employability ranking, with 45 U.S. universities in the top 150 list, but its dominance has been slightly reduced since the first survey three years ago, when American schools held 56 of the top spots. Britain has 14 schools in this year’s top 150; France has 12; Germany 8; Switzerland 7 and the Netherlands 5.

What will tomorrow´s university look like?

Another new trend this report highlights is the phenomena known as MOOCs. MOOC stands for Massive Open Online Courses and describes the programs most of the best universities have made available on line. Recruiters appear to keep a close eye on this new form of higher education and feel quite certain it will have a great impact on the economic model of universities since it is bound to reduce a university´s financial burden. Following the description of what would be considered an ideal university in 2013, the 2014 edition of the report by Emerging shall try and measure the impact of these new phenomena and provide the outlines of what tomorrow´s university might look like. Hand in hand with the recruiters.


How would you describe the ideal university?
  • "The ideal university should help students realise their objectives" (Brazil)
  • "An institution which defines its objectives without burdening its students with subjects that are of no future use" (France)
  • "Studies that strongly emphasise the practical side of things and gives students a belief in their own capabilities" (Australia)
  • "An ideal university works closely with professional practitioners, especially how actual projects are handled" (Germany)
  • "A place where professional are taught to be able exercise demanding jobs" (Netherlands")
  • "30% theory + 50% practice + 20% creativity = 100% talent" (China)
  • "Theory is important but social aptitude and a sense for teamwork even more so" (Japan)
Survey´s methology

The survey initially tallied online responses from more than 2,700 recruiters in 20 countries to build a profile of the ideal graduate employee. Respondents had a minimum of four years’ experience and the survey targeted those aiming to hire internationally. Countries covered were Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Britain and the United States.The top-150 university ranking was derived from their responses, combined with those of a subsequent poll of 2,300 top executives in a total of 30 countries.
