Taylor’s tops in graduate employability

Great strides: Taylor’s University retained its position as Malaysia’s leading private university in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022.

FOR the third consecutive year, Taylor’s University has retained its position as Malaysia’s top private university in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Graduate Employability Rankings.

This places the varsity alongside internationally renowned universities such as Cardiff University, Lancaster University, the University of Notre Dame and Université de Montréal.

Taylor’s University’s top performance in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2022 is its latest in a string of achievements garnered this year.

The institution continued its record as the leading private university in Malaysia and South-East Asia by leaping 47 spots to rank 332 globally in the QS World University Rankings 2022, placing it at the top 1.1% among the most influential institutions globally.

Taylor’s University vice chancellor and president Prof Michael Driscoll said the latest results of the QS survey show that the varsity has made great strides in the Employer Reputation and Employer Partnerships indicators.

“This demonstrates the trust that our industry partners place in us, and a testament to the quality of our graduates,” he said in a press release dated Sept 23.

He added that the university strives to ensure its graduates are equipped with the intellectual, practical and creative intelligences necessary to navigate an increasingly volatile world, set against a backdrop of high graduate unemployment.

“With the Higher Education Ministry’s Graduate Tracer Study indicating that more than 40,000 Malaysian graduates were unable to secure jobs last year, Taylor’s University has stepped up to the plate with innovative curriculum reforms and an emphasis on entrepreneurial and lifelong learning skills.

“Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, our efforts have resulted in a 99% graduate employment rate for the university’s graduates, based on survey results in that same tracer study,” he said.

Additionally, the university retained its Top 20 world ranking in the Hospitality and Leisure Management subject in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2021 earlier this year – making it the only university in Malaysia, and South-East Asia, to be in the Top 20 ranking.

The same rankings too indicated that Taylor’s Business School is the top private business school in Malaysia.

Taylor’s University is also one of a few Asian universities awarded the QS 5 Stars rating for Online Learning.

In the press release, the university said the award is testament to the institution’s direction in its teaching and learning approach, where e-learning has taken centrestage.

The unprecedented pandemic has accelerated the university’s latest approach in its new Taylor’s Curriculum Framework and the curation of a Taylor’sphere ecosystem, developed to hone multiple intelligences and encourage multidisciplinary learning, it added.
