This is how the XSGER 2022 ranking was prepared

As the world recovers from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, London-based Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) said in a note on its website, the importance of graduating with the skills and qualities needed by modern employers has arguably never been greater. Each ranked university has demonstrated the ability to produce graduates with the ‘soft skills’ needed for the modern workplace.

To determine these employability rankings of higher education institutions around the world, QS considers how prestigious the institutions are among employers. QS considered the following indicators and weights to calculate the GER 2022 score – Employer Reputation (30 percent), Alumni Outcomes (25 percent), Participation with Employers per Faculty (25 percent), Employer-Student Connection (10 percent) and graduate employment rate (10 percent).
