The universities most likely to prepare you for employment

We asked nearly 24,000 students across the country whether their university education is preparing them for a job. The top schools may surprise you

Our annual student survey asked 23,988 students whether their education is preparing them for post-graduation employment. We’ve ranked both schools and program areas based on their responses. We also asked nearly 2,800 professors to share whether freshman students arrive with the reading and writing skills required to thrive. Overall, we learned students at the University of Waterloo feel best prepared for the working world, but St. Thomas University is tops for writing ability. Meanwhile, nursing, commerce and pharmacy students think their programs are equipping them for a job.
