ANU graduates rated Australia’s most employable

17 November 2016

Graduates from The Australian National University (ANU) have been rated as Australia's most employable graduates and among the most sought after by employers worldwide.

The latest Global Employability University Ranking, published by the Times Higher Education, rated ANU as Australia's top university for getting a job for the fourth year in a row.

ANU was ranked 22nd in the world, up 10 places on 2015, in the survey of 150 universities drawn from 2,500 recruitment managers from large international companies from 20 countries.

Acting ANU Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Harding said the results reflected the strong global focus of education at ANU and the high quality of ANU students.

"The results prove ANU students are in great demand by employers both in Australia and around the world," Professor Harding said.

"ANU students have a global outlook and the University strongly encourages its students to seek international experiences as part of their education.

"ANU also offers a world-class education and research with a focus on solving some of the great challenges confronting the world.

"This ensures ANU students are well equipped for the challenges of the modern workforce and makes them highly sought after by employers."

The survey was commissioned by French human resources consultancy Emerging and conducted by German research firm Trendence.

The survey asked participants to define what they look for in graduates and choose the universities they believe produce the most employable graduates.
