Bilkent University has been named as the top-ranking university in Turkey in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings.
The new Graduate Employability Rankings are a pilot initiative. For this, the first edition of the rankings, over 44.000 survey responses were analyzed, 1.239 universities considered and 723 evaluated. Universities were ranked only if they elected to actively participate in QS’s data collection processes, or if enough publicly available data was available to permit their inclusion.
The methodology differs from that found in the global rankings, using different indicators and changing the weighting of existing indicators. The indicators fall into five categories: employer reputation (30%); partnerships with employers (25%); alumni outcomes (20%); employers’ presence on campus (15%); and graduate employment rate (10%).
Among the 723 universities evaluated, Bilkent ranked in the 151-200 band overall. It placed highest in the categories of employers’ presence (102nd) and partnerships with employers (130th).
