National University of Singapore President Professor Tan Eng Chye has said that NUS strives to ensure that its graduates are well-prepared for the digital economy, with deep expertise across disciplines, core life skills, as well as a growth mindset.
He also said that NUS students have the advantage of customising their learning journeys from a comprehensive and holistic suite of educational pathways.
These remarks were made after it was recently announced that NUS graduates have made the list of the world’s top 10 most employable according to the latest Global University Employability Ranking published annually by Emerging, a French human resource consultancy.
NUS’ initiatives to enhance the employability of its graduates include global study opportunities, residential living and learning experiences, as well as industry internships and immersion in entrepreneurial hubs in Asia and beyond.
Emerging’s global annual survey was conducted with 7,000 recruiters and managing directors of international companies from 22 countries. Together they represent employers that have recruited more than 250,000 young graduates in the past 12 months.
