Professor Dr Udo Steffens, president of Frankfurt School, is pleased with the results of the new THE University Global Employability Ranking. “HR professionals all over the world have confirmed again that Frankfurt School graduates are highly sought after. Our good position shows the successful work of our students, faculty and career services.”
The methodology of the ranking
The ranking features the 150 best universities for delivering graduates ready for the work-place. This is the sixth year the Global University Employability Ranking has been published. It is based on the feedback of two panels of judges, consisting of 2,500 recruitment managers in 22 countries and 3,500 international managers from companies around the world – a majority of these with more than 5,000 employees and more than 50 recruited graduates per year, covering all major business sectors. The panels were asked to recommend up to 15 universities, both within their countries and internationally, where they considered the best graduates to come from in terms of employability.
