The University of Toronto was ranked the top Canadian school producing the most employable graduates.

According to the Times Higher Education’s Global University Employability Ranking 2019, this year’s list included 250 universities spanning 41 countries, from the US to Japan, and employers voted for institutions both in their own country and around the world, if they recruit internationally.

The US, Germany, Japan and the UK each have an institution in the top 10, with Chinese and Canadian universities also appearing high in the ranking.

Meanwhile in Canada, nine universities appear in the Global University Employability Ranking 2019.

“Canadian universities are popular with international students for offering cheaper tuition than many US colleges, and a simple application process,” states the ranking.

The University of Toronto is the top Canadian choice among employers, according to this year’s list. It is also ranked 15th globally.

“Employers in Canada and beyond recognize the value of a University of Toronto education,” said U of T President Meric Gertler.

“The university’s faculty and staff work tirelessly to equip students with the skills and experience they need to succeed in an ever-changing and competitive global job market.”

Canadian universities rankings are spread across the country, including Ontario, Québec, and British Columbia.

In Ontario, McMaster University came in fifth place, and the University of Waterloo ranked ninth.
