The University of Navarra is ranked issue 45th in the world in terms of employability, according to the Global University Employability Ranking, published by Times Higher Education and prepared by the consulting firm Emerging. The ranking reflects the opinion of more than 9,000 managers of companies that recruit internationally, from 22 countries and from almost all economic sectors. The ranking, which evaluates 250 universities, considers the University of Navarra to be second in Spain in terms of employability.

According to the consultancy Emerging, employability has become central to the analysis of the Education university. Employers, according to the consultancy, are demanding that universities produce graduates who are ready to work from the very first minute. 82% of those interviewed consider that the partnership between business and the university system should be strengthened. In this regard, the University of Navarra's service in charge of employment for graduates, Career Services, had more than 2,333 agreements with companies in the 2018-2019 academic year, in addition to organising more than 482 meetings between its students and companies in their sectors. These data earned the University first place in Spain in the other major global ranking of Employability, by QS, where it was ranked 71st in the world.

The emergence of COVID-19 has led parents and prospective students to look with greater interest for universities that guarantee maximum employability for their graduates, according to the Gallic consultancy firm. As the director of Career Services, Roberto Cabezas, points out, "in the last five years, we have increased by 93.94% the employment opportunities offered by the University to its students".

According to Roberto Cabezas, in order to improve the employability of graduates from the University of Navarra, now recognised by the Emerging ranking, "we focus our efforts on four fundamental aspects: offering more and better recruitment opportunities to our students and graduates; dedicating more time to counselling staff and specialised advice; promoting programmes of training We are focusing our efforts on four fundamental aspects: offering more and better recruitment opportunities to our students and graduates; dedicating more time to counselling and specialised advice; promoting programmes to help them take their first steps in the world of work; and closely attending to the needs and demands of our partner companies.
