UNSW students recognised as
being the most employable in Australia
UNSW Sydney has been recognised
for the employability of its students in the Top100 Future Leaders Competition 2021 for the second year in
a row, with a record-breaking 37 students named as most employable students.
It’s the highest number of students to be selected from one institution since
the inception of the awards in 2014.
The Top100 Future Leaders
Competition, jointly hosted by GradConnection and The
Australian Financial Review, aims to identify the top emerging
talent from Australia’s university students. Students took part in a highly
competitive process, including psychometric testing, video interviews and
participation in an assessment event with top employers.
Academic, Professor Merlin Crossley was thrilled with the results and
congratulated the UNSW students who made the list.
“It’s wonderful to see so many
of our top students recognised ... UNSW values and continues to promote
industry engagement and work-integrated learning opportunities. We are proud to
offer students many opportunities to undertake programs that further develop
their skills and work experience.
“It’s an honour for UNSW to be
recognised as the university with the most employable students for two
consecutive years. This follows UNSW being recognised for having post-graduate
students receiving the highest starting salaries in Australia, and our high
employment rates for both post-graduate and undergraduate students in the
recent graduate outcomes surveys."
Two UNSW Business School
students in the Top 100 were also category winners for highly competitive
employer awards, including Bachelor of Information Systems (Hons) student
Jessica Lawson who won the Coles IT Top100 Future Leader Award, and Bachelor of
Commerce/Law student Alexandra Zoras who won the Ashurst Law Top100 Future
The win builds
on UNSW’s record in last year’s awards, which saw 27 students named as Most
