The Global Employability Survey and Ranking 2017, which measures the employability of graduates and employer satisfaction with graduates, has found that directors and talent management specialists are highly satisfied with Wits University graduates.

Polling the views of respondents from 22 countries, the survey focuses on the practical skills of ‘ready-for-work’ graduates developed by universities. The respondents were asked which of their local universities produce the best graduates.
Ranked at 150, Wits is the only university in South Africa and in Africa to make it to the top 150, the cut-off line by the rankings.

The 7th annual ranking was published in the Times Higher Education, and commissioned by French HR consultancy, Emerging, with the assistance of Trendence.

Wits Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Academic, Professor Andrew Crouch welcomed the news: “The employability of our graduates and their preparedness for the workplace are the true measure of the quality of our institution. As a University, we pride ourselves on equipping our students with a range of skills that make them valuable players in the workplace from day one. We will continue to develop ‘graduate-ness’ attributes in our students by providing them with the right balance between academics, co-curricula studies, and cutting-edge programmes that are in line with the demands of the changing world.”

Research output at Wits has catapulted by over 45% in the last four years, with over 85% of Wits academics publishing in quality, international journals.

“This is the very core of why universities matter — we create new knowledge and the high level skills required to address the challenges that societies face today, but also equip graduates with the skills to tackle problems that may arise in the future,” concludes Crouch.
