McMaster graduates are some of the most employable in the world, according to a new ranking from Times Higher Education.  

McMaster ranked fifth in Canada and 81st internationally in the 2022 Global Employability Ranking. This global ranking includes 250 universities across 44 countries.  

“McMaster graduates are known worldwide for their creativity, innovation and collaborative spirit,” says McMaster President David Farrar.

“This global ranking emphasizes the value employers place in those skills, and the international reputation our graduates have in the workforce.” 

Conducted by the HR consultancy group Emerging and published by Times Higher Education, the Global Employability Ranking surveys managers and recruiters from top companies across the world to reveal which universities they believe best prepare their students for the workforce.   

Managers and recruiters are asked to evaluate universities based on the following criteria: Graduate skills; specialization; academic performance; focus on work expertise; digital performance; and internationality.  

This year, there were a total of 99,000 votes cast by employers from 24 countries around the world.
