Reference & Data Mining: LinkedIn Introduces Graduate School Rankings Based on Career Outcome Data
Note: What you’re about to read about from LinkedIn has been online for several months. It appears today is a formal launch.
From the LinkedIn Blog:
…today, LinkedIn is introducing Graduate School Rankings [for 1o careers] based on career outcome data.
By analyzing the employment patterns of over 347+ million LinkedIn members from around the world, we were able to determine which graduate schools are the most successful in launching their graduates into successful careers at desirable companies. In other words, these rankings are based not on what happens before or during school, but the career outcomes that follow graduation.
When coupled with tools like LinkedIn’s Alumni Tool, Field of Study Explorer, School Finder and Decision Boards, you can get a more complete picture of what potential career paths after graduation could look like.
Rankings for schools in U.S., Canada, and UK.
Undergraduate program rankings are also available.
