The Geurs Radar works...like a detection radar! It focuses on the up-and-coming institutions of Higher Education which appear on the employers' shortlists, or which have crossed our assessment grid of employability excellence.
The Geurs Radar celebrates the institutions to watch in the coming years. By widely showcasing selected institutions now, we aim to put them on the map for prospective students to consider when making decisions for their education journey.
The Radar has one main edition per calendar year and will showcase specific universities of the current edition all year long.
The 1st edition 2024 puts the spotlight on 30 institutions of Higher Education selected by Emerging's expert committee.
Each of these 30 universities has received employer votes in our annual GEURS Ranking and Survey, in at least one Key Employability Driver of our Employability Evaluation Performance grid.
More information on the annual GEURS is available here: Global Employability University Ranking & Survey 2024.
The KEY Employability Drivers are the five decisive factors for employers when selecting the world's best institutions for graduate employability.
This driver identifies institutions which have incorporated elements in their teaching programs that help students develop practical skills and knowledge relevant to a specific profession or field of work. It emphasises the importance of preparing students for real world applications in their future careers. This could involve hands-on activities, industry-related projects, or specific learning modules aimed at building practical expertise.
Institutions which excel in the area of Specialisation have a strong focus on in-depth learning, training and research within a specific discipline. This enables graduates to acquire advanced knowledge and skills specifically tailored to that particular field of study.
Graduate Skills cover a wide range of abilities and attributes which individuals acquire during their academic journey and which are considered essential for success in their professional lives. They include both technical competencies specific to the field of study as well as soft skills, along with overall digital literacy.
This indicator covers the universty's effectiveness in online learning, using innovative teaching methods and preparing students for roles in the digital marketplace. It reflects the institution's ability to leverage digital tools and technologies to deliver high quality education, and meet the demands of the digital age.
Internationality reflects the institution's commitment to global engagement, enhancing the students' experience and contributing to their employability in an interconnected world. The Internationality of a university encompasses its global reputation, the international curriculum and diverse staff, and thus its capability of attracting students and faculty members worldwide.
