The rankings reflect the success of Waseda Graduates
Comments from Waseda University President Kaoru Kamata
“The QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2017 listed Waseda as No.1 again in Japan and raised its standing to 26th in the world, up from No.33 last year.
In addition to “Independence of Learning” and “Practical Utilization of Knowledge,” “Good Citizenship” is one of the founding principles of Waseda University. The University is committed to fostering enlightened citizens of altruistic nature who will be active in and contribute to society at large.
I believe the result of the QS Graduate Employability Rankings of this year reflects the success of many Waseda graduates fulfilling that mission.”
