'As the world recovers from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of graduating with the skills and qualities required by modern employers has arguably never been greater,' the London based Quacquarelli Symonds said.

'Each of the universities ranked has demonstrated an ability to produce graduates with the 'soft skills' required for the modern workplace,' Quacquarelli Symonds added.

'Given the fierce competition for graduate roles around the world, students should be seriously considering how their university can prepare them adequately for full-time employment, by connecting them with global employers and ensuring they develop the necessary skills and knowledge,' Quacquarelli Symonds stated.

For determining these employability rankings of higher education institutions across the world, Quacquarelli Symonds considers how well reputed the institutions are among employers, whether the institutions are nurturing high-achievers, how connected institutions are to companies and how attractive the institution's recent graduates are to employers.

Quacquarelli Symonds considered the following indicators and weightings to calculate the scores for GER 2022 -- employer reputation (30 per cent), alumni outcomes (25 per cent), partnerships with employers per faculty (25 per cent), employer-student connections (10 per cent) and graduate employment rate (10 per cent).
