The world's best universities

DirJournal Info Blog combines tuition fees and employer reputation to produce a list of the world's top 30 universities, sure to raise blood pressure at Lancaster and York.

As a former guest of the Warwick Manufacturing Group, I can say their on campus catering is excellent too.

Why employer reputation? It’s simple. Employers are the ones doing the hiring of new graduates. As a class, the new graduates over the last few years are having a very hard time finding employment. Experienced, highly trained individuals with years of experience are competing for the same jobs that would normally go to new graduates. Employers who think favorably of a university will be seeking these graduates regardless of the economic conditions. If companies want these students, they will be seeking them out – a nice change for those who have struggled to get even menial jobs in this current climate. Using tuition is straightforward – the less it costs, the more value associated with that desirable degree.
