Employing a unique tripartite methodology, the Talentbank GE Index provides a holistic view of how well universities prepare their students for the workforce.

This methodology includes three key aspects. Firstly, the index identifies the universities that employers typically recruit from. Secondly, the number of graduates hired from each university is quantified. Thirdly, the index evaluates the frequency of recurring hires based on positive performance.

More than a survey, Talentbank’s GE Index is a comprehensive career planning tool, aiming to significantly curtail graduate unemployment in Malaysia by aligning educational outcomes with market hiring demands.

The Talentbank GE Index is an independent, apolitical centre of research and consultancy well-versed in the graduate employability terrain. Its research involves thousands of leading graduate employers across key industry sectors to understand employment trends among graduates.
