Posted on October 09, 2014

Kingston, ON - Oct. 9, 2014 -   In a recently released report, LinkedIn has determined which Canadian universities are leaders in launching their graduates into desirable jobs. Queen’s topped the rankings in both the marketing and investment banking sectors, and placed highly in the finance and accounting sectors.  

The study analyzed the employment patterns of more than 300 million LinkedIn members from around the world, determined the most desirable jobs within several professions, and identified which universities’ graduates get these desirable jobs. 

Here are the top five Canadian universities in four of the categories covered by the study:
