University of Groningen alumni in demand throughout the world

17 December 2014

A degree from the University of Groningen opens doors to the international employment market. This is evident from the Global Employability Survey published recently in the New York Times.

Several thousand HR officers and company managers in twenty countries were asked what they looked for when appointing recent graduates, and which universities supplied the most ideal young candidates. The employability of University of Groningen alumni turned out to be high throughout the world. The University of Groningen secured 86th place in the 2014 rankings, making it the third Dutch university in this list of the top 150 universities after Eindhoven University of Technology (76) and Utrecht University (82).
