Global University Employability Ranking 2018

TUM ranked in the top 10 worldwide

The Technical University of Munich (TUM) has once again improved, now reaching number 6 in the new worldwide "Global University Employability Ranking". This places TUM at the top of the list of German universities in terms of quality of education.

The new top 10 in the „Global University Employability Ranking“ published by Times Higher Education are as follows:

  • Harvard University
  • California Institute of Technology
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • University of Cambridge
  • Stanford University
  • TUM
  • Princeton University
  • Yale University
  • University of Tokyo
  • National University of Singapore

The closest German universities are LMU Munich (26th place) and Heidelberg University (38th place). The Technical Universities in Berlin, Karlsruhe and Aachen follow in the ranking at 79th, 85th and 100th place respectively.

The ranking is based on a survey of approximately 7,000 managers at companies in 22 countries. Respondents were asked to name the universities with the best graduates, with universities in the respondent's own country excluded.

In last year's ranking TUM took 8th place. "Once again we see that the TUM level of research excellence, as documented for example by the 'Shanghai Ranking', is aligned with its excellence in education," says TUM President Prof. Wolfgang A. Herrmann, adding "We are once again in first place in the 'German Startup Monitor 2018', which further documents our claim as an entrepreneurial university."
