Moscow State University has made it into the Global Graduate Employability rankings compiled by the Quacquarelli Symonds research centre, according to TASS.
The authors of the survey create the rating by examining the relationship between the universities’ activities and the employment of their graduates. Among the key indicators of success were the universities’ partnerships with employers, their reputation among employers and so on.
As a result, Moscow State University, or MSU, and the Moscow State Institute of International Relations, or MGIMO, are considered the best Russian universities regarding post-graduation opportunities. MGIMO, for example, has become one of the leading universities in terms of “Employment in the First 12 Months after Graduation.”
The rankings now include St. Petersburg State University, the Plekhanov University of Economics, the National University of Science and Technology, the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology, and the Higher School of Economics.
Stanford University came in first place, with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology finishing second and Tsinghua University in third.
