IE University is the No. 1 university in Spain, No. 11 in Europe, and No. 29 worldwide in the Global Employability Ranking 2014

The ranking, published today by the International New York Times, gauges the quality of the 150 top universities in the world and the employability of their students

rankingweb14IE University is the No. 1 university in Spain, No. 11 in Europe and No. 29 in the world in the Global Employability Survey and University Ranking 2014 published today by the International New York Times.

The ranking was drawn up by leading consulting firms Emerging (France) and Trendence (Germany) and evaluated how attractive leading universities are for recruiters. Over 2,500 managers and HR experts from 20 countries took part in the survey, providing opinions on key aspects of the university learning experience, including levels of academic excellence in universities, the importance of a practical approach to learning, interpersonal skills, team work, and building the capacity to solve problems and work under pressure. Some 67% of participants underscored the fact that the global profile of a university is a key factor for ensuring graduates’ employability.

IE University climbed 5 positions in the 2014 ranking compared to last year’s results, and has risen 14 positions since 2012. Achieving the No. 29 position means that IE University is now among the top 30 educational establishments in the world when it comes to being appreciated by directors of human resources. The universities of Cambridge, Harvard and Yale are the current overall leaders.

“Universities play a pivotal role in ensuring their students are able to integrate into an increasingly competitive, globalized and intercultural work market,” said Salvador Carmona, Rector of IE University. “The fact that global corporations recognise our commitment to quality and excellence is enormously satisfying.”

The top 30 universities in the ranking comprise 11 US-based universities, 11 based in Europe, 5 in Asia, 2 in Canada, and one in Australia. The top 150 universities include Spain’s University of Navarre at No. 45 and Ramón Llull University at No. 108.

The ranking was based on the opinions of 2,500 managers and HR experts from 20 countries with regard to the best universities in their country, their continent and other world regions. These experts examined parameters such as the quality of different higher education systems, their strong points, and areas where there is room for improvement. They showed a special interest in teaching methodology, available specializations and the level of interaction with other universities and the corporate world during the degree program. One of the main conclusions of the study is that leading universities are striving to reinvent and restructure themselves in order to meet the challenges of a labor market that is in constant change.​

  • Este ranking, que publica hoy International New York Times, evalúa la calidad de las 150 mejores universidades del mundo y el grado de empleabilidad de sus alumnos

rankingweb14IE University es la 1ª universidad española, la 11ª europea y la 29ª del mundo en el Global Employability Survey and University Ranking 2014 que publica hoy lunes el diario estadounidense International New York Times.

Este ranking, realizado por las consultoras Emerging (Francia) y Trendence (Alemania), evalúa el atractivo de las principales universidades para los reclutadores. En el informe han participado 2.500 directivos y expertos en RR.HH. de 20 países que han valorado la excelencia académica de los centros universitarios, la importancia del aprendizaje práctico, las habilidades interpersonales, el trabajo en equipo, la capacidad de resolver problemas y trabajar bajo presión, entre otros aspectos. En este estudio, un 67% de los encuestados ha subrayado que el perfil “global” de las universidades es un factor clave de éxito en la empleabilidad de sus graduados.

IE University ha subido 5 posiciones en el ranking de 2014 respecto a 2013 y ha mejorado 14 puestos con respecto a 2012, hasta situarse la 29ª del mundo. De este modo, IE University se sitúa en el  ‘top 30’ de los centros de educación superior más apreciados y mejor valorados por directivos de recursos humanos, grupo liderado este año por las universidades de Cambridge, Harvard y Yale.  En el ‘top 30’ del ranking  figuran 11 universidades estadounidenses, 11 europeas, 5 asiáticas, 2 canadienses y una australiana.

“Las universidades juegan un papel fundamental en la integración de sus alumnos en un mercado profesional cada vez más competitivo, globalizado e intercultural; para nosotros es una satisfacción contar con el respaldo de empresas de ámbito internacional que nos refuerzan en nuestro compromiso con la calidad y la excelencia”, señaló Salvador Carmona, Rector de IE University.

El ranking analiza la opinión de 2.500 directivos y expertos en RR.HH. de 20 países sobre las mejores universidades de su país, su continente y otras regiones del mundo. Los expertos han analizado parámetros como la calidad de los diferentes sistemas de educación superior, sus puntos fuertes y sus posibles frentes de mejora. Han mostrado su interés por la innovación en metodología docente, la especialización de los graduados universitarios, y el grado de interacción entre los centros universitarios y el mundo empresarial durante el desarrollo de la carrera. Una de las grandes conclusiones de este estudio es el movimiento que están abordando las grandes universidades internacionales para reinventarse y reestructurarse con el fin de responder al reto de  un mercado profesional en constante cambio.
