The highly anticipated QS World University Rankings 2024 results have finally been unveiled, and National Taiwan University (NTU) has emerged as a prominent player, securing the 69th position worldwide. This achievement solidifies NTU's standing as one of the leading academic institutions globally.
Known for its global recognition, the QS Rankings employs various indicators such as Academic Reputation, Employer Reputation, and International Research Network to assess universities. In a new addition this year, QS introduced Employment Outcomes as a ranking criterion, emphasizing an institution's ability to ensure its students' employability.
NTU has exhibited exceptional performance in both Employment Outcomes and Employer Reputation, ranking 12th and 46th worldwide, respectively. This commendable feat can be attributed to the International Mentorship Program (IMP), which aims to expand recruitment possibilities for NTU students and has significantly enhanced the university's performance in these areas.
IMP plays a vital role in preparing students for the workplace and fostering a robust alumni network. In 2023, IMP successfully matched over 100 international students from 30 countries with 71 organizations, contributing to NTU's remarkable student employment rate of nearly 70%.
Beyond facilitating internships, IMP enhances NTU's employer reputation by hosting a range of workshops and inviting senior executives from partner organizations as guest speakers. These workshops provide students with valuable career skills and foster familiarity with industry practices. Furthermore, the annual job fair, "International Talent+ & Impact Zone," serves as another highlight of the program, fostering a strong connection between employers and students.
Lastly, IMP remains dedicated to equipping students with the necessary skills and knowledge to thrive in the workplace through comprehensive internship opportunities. This unwavering commitment effectively exemplifies the development of industry-university cooperation at NTU.
