The GEURS survey has been conducted every year since 2010.
It has compiled 11 years of data on Higher Education and worldwide graduate employment.
Since 2010 we have surveyed
91,000 managers who work with young graduates. They work around the world, in private companies of all sizes and through all sectors.
We have collected more than
one million ratings of universities, covering over 6000 institutions worldwide.
We have collected the feedback from managers who are responsible for 2,1 million recruitments worldwide.
100% of our respondents are top operational managers working and/or recruiting more than 5 graduates per year, from all sectors, all roles and all countries.
We have scanned 32 countries from all continents regarding market expectations towards graduates and employability performance.
With more than 5000 press clippings over time and 195
million views per year, the
GEURS ranking and survey is widely consulted. Source: Meltwater for the Times Higher Education.
GEURS is the 2nd most used ranking by employers.
GEURS is an independent survey.
It is commissioned by Emerging and conducted by the consulting and polling institute Trendence.
The GEURS is the only Top 250 University ranking and survey exclusively based on employers direct assessment. In the survey, these employers share their knowledge on the challenges of future training and their expectations of higher education.
For the ranking they have up to 15 votes each to rate the employability performance of a list of + 2000 universities. They have to select the decisive factor behind each of these casted votes from a set of 6 drivers of employability performance.
64,7% work in companies of more than 500 employees
100% have more than 5 years experience
41.5% have corporate/business roles
49,5% have IT roles / engineering roles
100% recruit and/or supervise more than 5 graduates a year
61.2% supervise more than 10 graduates annually
The ranking and survey data can be broken down into various groups of participants to allow comparisons:
i.e. by country, by sector, by role or by company size.
We can also add an other layer and analyse the answers by insights: employability drivers, skills satisfaction, gaps or for instance recommended type of cooperation.
