Utilizing its in-house online monitoring tool “KEYPO”, DailyView published the ranking in relation to prospects of private universities after graduation based on the opinions from internet users. To help more students prepare for their careers in advance, it also shared the information on the opportunities for industry-academia collaboration and interdisciplinary learning provided by the schools on the charts.

Given the outstanding rating in the survey, SU’s students are proved to be capable of applying what they learned in the workplace, which is not only attributed to the school’s career exploration program but also its various comprehensive career-building internship opportunities.

SU President Wei-Ta Pan stressed that interdisciplinary learning is now essential under the effects of globalization and digitalization, and it helps students make full preparation for the future. Therefore, Soochow encourages students to involve in more different areas of knowledge when creating studying plans. With increasing educational resources allocated for technology learning, Pan believes Soochow graduates could gain a competitive edge in the future job market.
