Abstract:This thesis explores the effect that international universities have on graduate employability. Specifically, the study aim to answer the research question: To what extent do higher education institutions with a high degree of internationalisation have higher graduate employability as compared to higher education institutions with a lower degree of internationalisation? In order to accomplish this objective, secondary sources are used. The data needed for this can be found in the global higher education institutions rankings ‘U-multirank’, ‘QS top universities’ and ‘THE’ as well as OECD statistics. These data are used to perform several multiple regression analyses to test the hypothesis “the higher the degree of internationalisation of universities, the higher graduate employability will be”. The results provide evidence that international higher education institutions indeed have higher graduate employability than those universities with a lower degree of internationalisation. Yet, the findings also show that having international students is the only factor – out of the four used to conceptualise the degree of internationalisation of universities – which has a statistically significant relationship with graduate employability.
