The ranking, called the 2012 Global Employability Survey, focuses on employability and is published in The New York Times and its sister newspaper International Herald Tribune. It is based on interviews with 4 700 recruiters and top managers in 20 countries who answered questions on for example which universities in the world are producing the most employable graduates.
US and UK universities top the list, as in most international rankings. Harvard ranks highest, followed by Yale, Cambridge, Oxford, Stanford, M.I.T., Columbia, Princeton, Imperial College London and in 10th place the German university Goethe-University Frankfurt am Main.
The University of Gothenburg is the second highest ranked Nordic university after Stockholm University, which places 54th. Other Swedish universities on the top 100 list are Karolinska Institutet (80th), Stockholm School of Economics (98th) and Lund University (99th). The 2012 Global Employability Survey was conducted by the French consulting firm Emerging and the German analysis company Trendence.
