Global Views Monthly 2024 Enterprises’ Favorite University Students Survey: Taipei Tech Takes the Second Place, Leading Vocational Schools

According to the latest 2024 Enterprises’ Favorite University Students Survey released by Global Views Monthly, National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) continues to top the list, while Taipei Tech has replaced National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Taiwan Tech) to become the runner-up and also clinched the top spot among vocational universities. The fourth and fifth places are held by National Taiwan University and National Tsing Hua University respectively, while National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology has progressed by two places to secure the sixth spot.

Students’ acquisition of practical knowledge and applicable skills has become the benchmark in evaluating university teaching quality across various sectors. Students, parents, and even schools increasingly attach more importance to feedback from the business world. Therefore, an indicator that reflects student learning outcomes from the perspective of employers is crucial for prospective students. Consequently, Global Views Monthly's continuous Enterprises’ Favorite University Students Survey has gained significant importance over the years.

In the 2024 survey, the Research and Survey Center at Global Views Monthly invited 2,579 organizations to participate. They included listed companies, firms with a capital exceeding NT$100 million, and regional hospitals and medical centers with more than 300 beds. A total of 659 completed questionnaires were collected.

There has also been a change to the seventh place in this year’s survey. Feng Chia University not only took the seventh place but also secured the top spot among private universities, advancing three places from last year, and pushed National Chengchi University to the eighth place. Additionally, Fu Jen Catholic University and National Central University entered the top ten, ranking ninth and tenth respectively. The top private technical university was Longhua University of Science and Technology, ranking 26th.

In terms of regional rankings, universities with the most preferred graduates in northern Taiwan are Taipei Tech, Taiwan Tech, and National Taiwan University. In central Taiwan, Feng Chia University, National Yunlin University of Science and Technology, and Tunghai University take the top three spots, while National Cheng Kung University, National Kaohsiung University of Science and Technology, and National Sun Yat-sen University are the top in southern Taiwan. In eastern Taiwan and outlying islands, graduates from National Ilan University, National Dong Hwa University, and Tzu Chi University of Science and Technology are more preferred.

Different types of companies also have different preferences for fresh graduates. Unlike publicly listed companies that prefer NCKU graduates, non-publicly listed companies prefer Taipei Tech graduates. Healthcare institutions favor graduates from National Taipei University of Nursing and Health Sciences, Chang Gung University of Science and Technology, and Chia Nan University of Pharmacy and Science. The information technology industry also favors graduates from Taipei Tech and Taiwan Tech over graduates from NCKU, National Tsing Hua University, National Taiwan University, and National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University. However, traditional manufacturing industries prefer graduates from NCKU.
