Stanford University: The second best university in the world and 1st
in terms of graduate employability, Stanford University ranks best for Partnerships with Employers indicator, as well as
ranking second for Alumni Outcomes. Based in Silicon Valley, California,
Stanford is a stones throw away from tech giants like Google, LinkedIn, Tesla
Motors, YouTube, Nike, Netflix and Snapchat, to name a few. Not only that, the
university also counts founders of the aforementioned companies like Sergei
Brin, Larry Page, Peter Thiel, Elon Musk etc as its distinguished alumni. No
wonder why its graduates are already flooded with offers from these companies
even before they graduate.

in terms of graduate employability, UCLA
graduates are in the enviable position of being among the worldâ€™s most

Sciences and Medicine, Social Sciences and Management. The university also
ranks among the top three universities in the world according in Arts and
Humanities, Natural Sciences.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT): What can you write about the best university
in the world, a title MIT has got almost used to. Being the best university in
the world means itâ€™s achieved the maximum score
across all categories, including research, employability, teaching, facilities,
internationalization, innovation, specialist criteria and inclusiveness. Ranked
1st globally and 5th in terms of graduate employability,
MIT is also the best university for subjects like architecture, linguistics,
computer science and information systems, engineering and technology,
chemistry, mathematics, economics and econometrics. I really wonder whether the
students enrolled in MIT need a better pedigree to showcase it to prospective
University of California, Berkeley (UCB): Ranked 27th globally and 9th
