A survey by The Black Collegian magazine of more than 2,300 African, Asian, Hispanic, and Native American undergraduate and MBA students found that corporate diversity is a critical factor for minority students in deciding upon employers, and several major accounting firms are among the companies that excel in this area.
The accounting firms that were ranked among the top 50 are listed below, along with links to their diversity policies and rankings by The Black Collegian:
Arthur Andersen ranked no. 18.
PricewaterhouseCoopers ranked no. 19.
Ernst & Young ranked no. 20.
Deloitte Consulting ranked no 28.
Preston J. Edwards, Sr., CEO of iMinorities, Inc., said "The survey identified the top 50 companies minority undergraduate and MBA students would like to work for, and it will serve as a valuable blueprint for students to use in contacting companies which embrace diversity."
