Graduates of the Technical University of Munich (TUM) are among the most sought-after on the international job market. This is shown by the twelfth place in the current "Global University Employability Ranking", a survey of around 9,000 human resources managers in 22 countries.
Every year, on behalf of the British magazine "Times Higher Education", the French management consultancy Emerging and the German market research company Trendence ask companies in all major industries to name the universities with the best graduates.
With rank twelve worldwide TUM is, as in the past years, one of the universities, which prepares its students best for the working world. Within Europe, only the University of Cambridge (rank 4) and the University of Oxford (rank 5) are placed ahead of TUM. The closest German universities are the Humboldt University of Berlin in 39th place and the LMU Munich in 43rd place.
TUM also reaches top positions in other rankings regularly. In 2020, for example, it reached the German number 1 spot in the "QS World University Ranking" for the sixth time in a row. Students also give TUM top marks, as shown by the current "CHE University Ranking" for which students of management and information systems programs were surveyed this year, placing TUM in the top group in numerous categories.
