High Employment Results

Through substantial and well-developed career support services and activities, Doshisha University continues to maintain a high employment rate (98.3% for male students; and 98.6% for female students) despite the current bleak employment situation. In our recent survey of students who have been assured of a job before graduation, more than 91% were ‘greatly satisfied’ or ‘satisfied’ with their places of employment. Employers and other recruiting organizations consistently give high praise to the students of Doshisha University. This high employment rate is a result of the university’s efforts to support students in their choice of career path, and is achieved not by narrowing down to specific academic and career areas or being swayed by the scale and name recognition of employers, but by respecting students’ individual values and interests. Under the educational policy of valuing the independent spirit of individuals cultivated in a liberal school culture, Doshisha University has been producing high caliber graduates who can act on their own initiative and succeed in a variety of career fields. Above all, the firmly established reputation of such alumni has undoubtedly helped to ensure the consistently high rate of employment of Doshisha graduates.
