HSE University has managed to retain its high position in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings. This is first and foremost due to the active involvement of our corporate partners in the educational process. From the early stages of their studies, our students take part in projects from external clients, take courses by lecturing industry professionals, and participate in a huge number of career events. We establish more and more corporate partnerships every year. This kind of involvement helps bridge the gap between industries and HSE students, thereby increasing our graduates’ competitiveness in the labour market and strengthening the university’s reputation among employers.
The methodology behind the QS Graduate Employability Rankings differs from that of the QS World University Rankings. It comprises five indicators: Employer Reputation (survey-based, accounting for 30%), Alumni Outcomes (25%), Partnerships with Employers (25%), Employer-Student Connections (10%), and Graduate Employment Rate (10%).
