The University of British Columbia has been ranked the fourth best Canadian school when it comes to 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.

Topping that list is the University of Toronto, followed by McGill University, the University of Montreal, and finally, UBC. Hamilton’s McMaster University rounds out the top five. The other BC school in the top 10 – the University of Victoria – landed in ninth place.

Globally, UBC was ranked 61st on the list.
