International survey ranks Hebrew University among the world's best at preparing students for workplace

An analysis published by Times Higher Education (THE) has ranked Hebrew University of Jerusalem students as the 62nd most employable graduates in the world, placing the Hebrew University among the world's top 100 universities at preparing its students for the workplace.

The ranking also positions Hebrew University graduates as the most employable from Israeli universities, followed by the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology at 113, and Tel Aviv University at 135. The Hebrew University moved up 5 points this year, from 67 last year.

The global employability ranking, designed by the French human resources consultancy Emerging and published exclusively by Times Higher Education, reveals which universities the recruiters at top companies think are the best at preparing students for the workforce. The survey was conducted among thousands of recruiters and managers from a range of firms and industries around the world. Respondents were asked to define what they look for in graduates and which universities they believe produce the most employable graduates.

The top 5 ranked institutions globally were Caltech-California Institute of Technology, Harvard University, Columbia University, MIT-Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and University of Cambridge.

Editor of Times Higher Education Rankings: "Hebrew University research is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and is being cited globally."

In the 2016 Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings released today, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem is ranked #17 in Asia. The Hebrew University moved up 8 spots from #25 last year, to #17 this year. The Hebrew University is also the highest-rated Israeli university in the new Asia University Rankings.   

These are the fourth annual Asia University Rankings, Times Higher Education’s ranking of the top 200 universities in Asia. The full rankings table can be found at https://www.timeshighereducation.com/world-university-rankings/2016/regional-ranking.

Phil Baty, Editor of Times Higher Education Rankings, said: “This ranking judges world class universities across their full range of activities — teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook – using Times Higher Education’s trusted, rigorous standards. To emerge as Israel’s number one university and 17th across the entire continent of Asia is a major achievement and something to be celebrated. Hebrew University has shown particular strength in research impact – our analysis demonstrates that its research is pushing the boundaries of knowledge and is being cited globally.”

"The 2016 Times Higher Education Asia University Rankings rank the top 200 universities in Asia, and are based on the same rigorous criteria as the THE World University Rankings – but with special modifications to better reflect the characteristics of Asia’s universities. We judge world class universities employing 13 separate performance indicators across all of their core missions – teaching, research, knowledge transfer and international outlook," according to Times Higher Education.

The Hebrew University of Jerusalem is Israel’s leading academic and research institution, producing one-third of all civilian research in Israel. For more information, visit http://new.huji.ac.il/en.
