IMT Atlantique has, for the first time, been included in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings and is now ranked among the top 300 institutions worldwide (251-300). The ranking reaffirms our excellent reputation with employers.
The ranking is based on 5 indicators: employer reputation, the number of alumni in a list of the Top 40,000 entrepreneurs, corporate partnerships, the employer/student relationship, and the placement rate.
"We are delighted to be recognized in this international ranking, which confirms our school's development strategy and showcases our graduates, as this is a worldwide rating of the institutions that best prepare students for the world of work. Our place in the QS GER underlines the strength of the link between the institution and its industrial partners, and more generally with the socio-economic world", said Anne Beauval, IMT Atlantique's vice-president.
The very strong links with companies that IMT Atlantique maintains have earned it the 73rd position in the world on the 'Employer Reputation' indicator and the 100th position in the world on the 'Graduate Employment rate'.
Within the current economic and health context, the position of IMT Atlantique graduates (graduating class of September 2020) has been closely monitored. IMT Atlantique graduates are doing remarkably well: the net employment rate at 6 months was 85%, compared to 93% last year, compared with an average of 79% and 90% respectively for French engineering schools. It should be noted that the apprentices in particular stood out: the employment rate of the graduates of our 3 apprenticeship courses is 95% (it was 93% last year).
