The URL, among the world best universities in employability, according to the QS Ranking

The URL appears again in an international ranking that recognizes the index and the quality of employability of its students. The University is one of the five ranked Catalan universities.

Ramon Llull University (URL) appears one more time in an international ranking that highlights the good level of employability of its graduates. In this case, the prestigious ranking Graduate Employability 2019, promoted by the British consultancy Quacquarelli Symonds (QS), positions the URL in the world rank 251-300 of universities with better indicators of employability. The University is one of the 500 universities from all over the world chosen for the ranking, in which there are also other 13 Spanish universities and only other four Catalan ones.

This ranking considers 5 indicators: the employer reputation, which takes into account the opinion of 40.000 employers in charge of choosing the universities with the most competent, innovative and effective graduates (30% of the ranking value); the alumni outcomes, which highlights the universities that produce world-changing graduates (25%); partnership with employer per faculty, which evaluates the research that universities do with global companies and the job placement of the graduates in these companies (25%); the employer-students connection, which quantifies the number of employers who are actively present on campus, such as networking sessions or job fairs (10%); and, finally, the graduate employment rate(10%).

These URL good results are added to those obtained in the last two editions of the occupancy ranking elaborated by Times Higher Education. It placed the URL again in the top 100 worldwide. That time the URL was the best ranked Catalan university by large companies when hiring their graduates.
