Leading global higher education company Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) has named the American University in Cairo (AUC) in its annual Graduate Employability Rankings report, according to Egypt Independent. The report placed AUC at the 191st spot out of 500 universities, climbing from 201 out of 250 institutions last year.

According to a statement by AUC, the Egypt-based university boasts an 86% employment rate among its alumni within one year of graduation.

Rankings are based on five key factors: the institution’s reputation among employers, alumni outcomes, university partnerships with employers, employer-student relations, and employment rate among the university’s graduates.

The report also measures employers’ presence on campus, earning AUC high scores in employer-student connections and alumni outcomes. “AUC partners with employers on several fronts. Apart from on-campus recruitment, the Career Center engages employers in the career education of AUC students,” said Maha Guindi, executive director of AUC’s Career Center, in a press release by the university. “Employers participate in AUC’s job shadowing program; professionals from various industries are invited to represent career fields at career exploration events; and organizations offer internship opportunities year-round to help create career awareness among students and enhance their experiential learning process.”

The university also scored higher than the African average in almost all ranking criteria.
