The power of a BU diploma was recognized last week when the employability of graduates of the University was ranked 17th in the world and 7th among U.S. schools in a survey published in the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune. The 2012 Global Employability Survey was conducted by Emerging, a French consulting firm, and Trendence, a German polling institute, and asked hundreds of international companies which universities were most likely to produce the ideal employee; it also asked them to list the ideal qualities of a new graduate.

Harvard was ranked number one among U.S. schools, followed by Yale, Stanford, MIT, Columbia, Princeton, and BU. For the rest of the story, go to BU Today.
