Top 10 dream companies for business students around the world
Google is known for offering appealing perks, great pay, and an exceptional workplace culture — so it’s no surprise that undergraduate business students find the search behemoth to be the most desirable employer.
Earlier this year, Universum, a global research and advisory firm, surveyed about 100,000 of these undergraduates across the globe and asked them to choose the companies and organizations they’d most like to work for.
Universum then put together a ranking of the most desirable employers, based on the number of undergraduate business students who chose a company as one of their dream employers.
Google, which specializes in online advertising technologies, cloud computing, software, and, of course, search, landed at the top of the list for a second consecutive year.
