The 21 global universities that produce the most employable graduates

Times Higher Education has published its annual "Global University Employability Survey," a ranking of universities that turn out graduates with the best job prospects.

The data was collected from a wide-ranging survey of recruiters and managing directors and based on a variety of weighted factors that can make a graduate employable.

The skills and experiences deemed most important for employability were professional experience, a high degree of specialisation, proficiency in at least two foreign languages, extracurricular activities, an excellent academic record, and graduation from a "top" university.

While universities in the US, the UK, and Japan dominate the top of the ranking, there's also room for institutes in other parts of Europe, North America, and Asia.

Take a look.
