The days of ivory towers are over. According to a ground-breaking survey of what recruiters of major companies are looking for in university systems round the world, the only clouds tomorrow’s graduates are to have their heads in are i-clouds. Their feet, meanwhile, should be firmly planted in their field of expertise as a result of practical training and internships. Employability is the no.1 criterion recruiters look at when choosing a university according to 37.1% of respondents.
For the fourth year running, French Human Resources consultancy Emerging has joined forces with German polling institute Trendence to interview 4,500 recruiters in 20 different countries and produce a global picture with a unique ranking of today’s best universities in terms of the employability of graduates, while also obtaining an enlightening vision of tomorrow’s university.

It is a valuable tool for employers, but also for educational establishments and students.

A new university ranking system, U-Multirank, was officially launched by the European Union (EU) in Dublin on Wednesday, bringing a new and broader approach to the assessment of universities throughout the world.
Some 500 universities worldwide are expected to sign up to U-Multirank, and the first results will be published in early 2014.
U-Multirank will rate universities in five separate areas: reputation for research, quality of teaching and learning, international orientation, success in knowledge transfer – such as partnerships with businesses, and start-ups – and contribution to regional growth.
The aim, said Androulla Vassiliou, the European commissioner for education, is to give students and institutions a clear picture of their performance across a range of important areas.
Until now university rankings have placed “disproportionate” weight on research excellence, she said.
Brussels has proposed a funding allocation of €2 million (US$2.7 million) from the EU’s Lifelong Learning Programme in 2013-14, with the possibility of a further two years of seed funding in 2015-16
The king is dead long live the king. The 2012 FT European business schools ranking, now in its ninth year, marks the end of an era. The European crown, which has belonged to HEC Paris of France for the past six years, has been seized by IE Business School of Spain. IE now tops the group of 80 European schools.
The ranking is based on the indexed scores achieved by schools this year in five rankings – those for MBAs, executive MBAs, masters in management and open and custom executive education (see Key and methodology). Indexed scores reflect a school’s standing among its European peers.
Both quality and quantity are required to reach the top. IE Business School is now included in all five rankings, having participated in the master in management ranking for the first time in 2012, reaching sixth place.
The top spot in the European schools ranking reflects IE’s strong performances across the range, notably third in the MBA ranking.
“IE Business School is outstanding for the international environment, the personal development and coaching one receives,” says Larissa Dornbach, a 2008 MBA graduate from Germany and now a senior manager...
Bad rules breed corruption. Cutting them costs nothing
SINCE 2003 the International Finance Corporation (IFC) and the World
Bank have been tracking the business-friendliness of government rules
around the world. Things are looking up. Nearly all regions are catching
up with the best practices seen in the richest countries.
This matters for many reasons. One is that onerous rules breed
corruption. For as many countries as it can, the IFC plots its own
measures of the regulatory burden against perceived levels of
corruption, as ranked by Transparency International, a pressure group.
As the chart shows, the more rules impede business, the more incentive
businessfolk have to bribe them away. Lighter rules mean less baksheesh. They also mean a larger formal economy and a wider tax base.
