Macquarie moves up in new employability rankings

14 September 2017

Macquarie University has moved into the 121-130 band and in the tenth position in Australia in the newly released 2018 QS Graduate Employability rankings.

Assessing nearly 495 universities world-wide, the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2018 provides information about how successful today’s students are at securing a job after graduation.

QS assesses universities on alumni outcomes, employer-student connections, employer reputation, graduate employment rate and partnerships with employers.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor Corporate Engagement and Advancement, Professor David Wilkinson, said it was pleasing to see Macquarie’s employability indicators improving again in key rankings.

“While international ranking systems are only one indicator of performance we are pleased to see Macquarie’s global standing and reputation rise, particularly around the key area of graduate outcomes.”

In August Macquarie was once again ranked as a top institution in the 2017 Academic Ranking of World Universities, being named within the top 200 universities worldwide.
