Friday, September 27, 2019

LUMS has been ranked the number 1 University in Pakistan, among the top 50 in Asia, and top 200 globally according to the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) Graduate Employability Ranking 2020.

This is a remarkable achievement for LUMS and reaffirms that students at the University are receiving a quality education that translates into successful careers after graduation.

“Building on its strengths as a learning institution that excels in research and teaching, this ranking is a testament to how employers view the quality of LUMS graduates,” said Vice Chancellor Dr. Arshad Ahmad. “QS affirms the world-class educational experience our students receive at LUMS. Student success is derived from a broad curriculum taught by the best teachers in Pakistan. I want to congratulate our faculty who prepare our students for a dynamic and challenging work place environment and our staff at the placement office for a stellar job in supporting our students.”

The QS Graduate Employability Rankings are developed after evaluating five metrics: employer reputation, alumni outcomes, partnerships with employers per faculty, employer/student connections, and the graduate employment rate.

This is the second time LUMS has made its mark in this category. As reported by the 2018 QS Graduate Employability Rankings, LUMS stood as the number 1 University in Pakistan, top 50 in Asia, and among the top 250 universities in the world.

The QS Graduate Employability Rankings reflect how educational institutions around the world are preparing their graduates for success in the workforce. It is a source of pride for the LUMS community that the University is not only the number one institution in the country, but also distinguishes itself globally.
