Graduate Employment Survey 2017 (Published 2018)

The top degree programmes are yet again in law, medicine, IT and business.

In the top 10 of our latest Graduate Employment Survey ranking, business clinched 3 spots (down from 5 last year), law 3 spots, information technology 3 spots, and medicine and dentistry one spot each. We count NTU Business and Computing programme as both IT and business.

This is also the first year that Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) released its own GES survey results. It did pretty well.

In terms of employability, Music, Art Design & Media, English and Communication Design ranked at the bottom.

In total, 108 degree programmes were ranked this year.
