The University is 41st in the world in terms of employability, according to the GEURS 2021 ranking, prepared by the consultancy Emerging for Times Higher Education. The result represents an improvement of four positions compared to the previous edition and places the University of Navarra second in Spain in employability, out of seven Spanish universities that managed to qualify.
The ranking is based on surveys of employment managers in international companies, almost 11,000 employers in 23 countries. Using the data from these surveys, 250 universities with the best employability from all over the world have been selected.
"We are very pleased with these results. They are an endorsement of our project, to be communicating vessels between our students and graduates and connect them with leading international professionals and companies, to bring everyone together and collaborate in an environment of trust and influence, maximising opportunities for success and personal and professional fulfilment. This achievement excites us, excites us and encourages us to continue leading to be catalysts for positive change in society," said Roberto Cabezas, director of Career Services University of Navarra.
