Companies confirm optimal quality of degree programs

TUM takes 13th spot in the Global University Employability Ranking

Graduates of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are in demand with companies worldwide. This is seen yet again in the latest edition of the Global University Employability Ranking, in which TUM holds the number 13 position. This places it among the top four universities in Europe.

The ranking determines which universities are educating the best graduates from the point of view of employers. For the latest edition, around 11,000 managers were surveyed who recruit staff internationally in 23 countries. They work in a wide range of industries and with companies of various sizes. The rankings, which are commissioned annually by the British magazine Times Higher Education (THE), are compiled by the French management consulting firm Emerging and the German market research institute Trendence.

TUM has been well ahead of all other German universities for years. In the new rankings it placed 13th and is among the top four in Europe along with the University of Cambridge (4th), the University of Oxford (8th), and the ETH Zurich (11th). In the European Union it is number one.

Students highly satisfied

The students also rate the study conditions at TUM very highly. In the most recent CHE University Rankings, which divide German universities into three groups regarding various subjects, TUM scored dozens of placings in the top group. For these rankings, the assessments of a university’s own students are the most important factor.

In international rankings, where research plays a key role, TUM also achieves excellent results on a regular basis. For example, it recently placed among the 25 best universities in computer science, engineering and natural sciences in the THE World University Rankings by Subject.
