안녕하세요. SAY, 오늘 또 인사드립니다.
점점 추워지는 날씨에, 올해 특히 지독하다는 독감, 꼭 조심하시길 바랍니다.
오늘은 2017년 고용시장 관련 영국대학 랭킹 정보를 가지고 왔습니다.
권위 있는 세계대학랭킹순위 중 한 곳인 QS Top University에서 얼마 전 고용시장에서의 대학들의 활약을 토대로 2017년 순위를 발표했습니다.
‘QS Graduate Employability Rankings’ 는 단순 취업률만으로 순위를 매기는 것이 아닌 다양한 지표를 토대로 매겨지는 랭킹인데요,
다음은 랭킹에 반영된 5가지 지표에 대한 설명입니다.
Employer reputation (30%)
Employer reputation is measured using a global survey, in which graduate employers are asked to identify the institutions producing the best graduates in their field. For the 2017 edition of the ranking, the opinions of over 37,000 employers were considered.
Alumni outcomes (20%)
To assess alumni outcomes, QS has sourced the alma maters of those included in 61 lists of highly successful individuals, each measuring desirable outcomes in a particular walk of life. In total, QS analyzed the educational pathways of 21,000 of the world’s most innovative, creative, wealthy, entrepreneurial, and/or philanthropic individuals, to establish which universities are producing world-changing graduates. To acknowledge the fact that many of these lists are produced by research and media outlets based in the US and UK, a weighting formula has been applied that lends extra weight to ‘international’ submissions.
Employer partnerships (25%)
This indicator combines two components to assess institutions’ engagement with industry partners in research and other areas. First, it considers the number of distinct global companies collaborating with each institution in at least three research papers indexed by Scopus. Employment-related partnerships not related to research are also considered. Second, scores are adjusted in proportion to the number of faculty members employed. The 2017 edition of the ranking considers university collaborations with 2,000 top global companies – four times as many as in the pilot edition.
Employer-student connections (15%)
This indicator involves summing the number of employers who are actively present on a university’s campus, providing motivated students with an opportunity to network and acquire information. Employer presence also increases the opportunity of students achieving career-launching internships and research opportunities. This ‘active presence’ may take the form of participating in careers fairs, organizing company presentations, or any other self-promoting activities.
Graduate employment rate (10%)
This indicator is the simplest, but essential for any understanding of how successful universities are at nurturing employability. It involves measuring the proportion of graduates (excluding those opting to pursue further study or unavailable to work) in full- or part-time employment within 12 months of graduation. The scores in this category are calculated by considering the difference between each institution’s employment rate and the national average. This accounts for the fact that a university’s ability to foster employability will be affected by the economic performance of the country in which it is situated.
