Consulting and banking may be very popular career choices, but it was Google that was chosen as the most desirable company to work for by MBA students for the second year in a row. These are the results of a new survey by Universum Communications.

Almost a quarter of the 5,769 students who participated in the survey named Google among the top five most desirable companies to work for after graduation. The survey covered students at 52 business schools. Mc Kinsey and Co. and Goldman Sachs came in second and third.

Google's director of global university programs Yvonne Agyvei says that what attracts so many MBA students to Google is that they “really get a lot of responsibility right at the outset. MBAs are looking for the opportunity to make an impact.”

Even though competition for a job with Google is fierce, with MBA students applying in thousands, Google hired hundreds of new MBAs last year alone.

Claudia Tattanelli, CEO of Universum North America, says that the search engine has become a “worldwide name, it is global and it recruits only the best,” adding that the company also treats its employees very well and in fact “has revolutionized how employees are treated. They are famous for keeping employees happy.”

Here are the top 10 companies and percentages of MBA students who listed them: 


1. Google 23.65%

2. McKinsey and Co. 15.84%

3. Goldman Sachs 14.98%

4. Apple 13.68%

5. The Boston Consulting Group 12.12%

6. Bain & Company 10.81%

7. Walt Disney 8.83%

8. Nike 8.82%

9. Deloitte 8.11%

10. J.P. Morgan 7.94%


Consulting firms in the top 100 include Merrill Lynch (#18), Ernst & Young (#22), Booz Allen Hamilton (#25), PricewaterhouseCoopers (#35), Accenture (#38), KPMG (#51), Mercer Management Consulting (#83) and A.T. Kearney (#96).
