A new report issued by QS World University Rankings has singled out Carleton University for being among the 10 best Canadian universities for graduate employability in 2019.
Carleton was recognized in the overall global ranking with its highest scores in the alumni outcomes indicator, placing 163rd globally out of more than 20 000 universities worldwide, 500 of which were ranked. Indicators used to develop the employability ranking include employer reputation, alumni outcomes, partnerships with employers (which assesses partnerships linked to both employment and research), employer-student connections and graduate employment rates.
The ranking highlights how Carleton “is active in promoting its students’ employability, with many opportunities to take part in co-op programs, volunteer work in the community, and other on- and off-campus work experiences.”
“Carleton’s QS employability rankings is an affirmation that our students are graduating ready to work and to make a difference,” said President Benoit-Antoine Bacon. “Our focus on experiential learning and new partnerships with companies such as Shopify are providing students with distinctive educational experiences that enhance their employability.”
QS World University Rankings was established in 2004 and is an independent source of global intelligence on the higher education sector.
