Google Tops Among MBAs' Favorite Employers

Google took the top spot of Fortune magazine's annual survey of MBA students' favorite companies to work for. Google knocked McKinsey from its 2006 top spot into the second position. Twenty-one percent of the students ranked Google in their top five.

The top 10 favorite companies to work for according to the survey of MBA students are:

1. Google
2. McKinsey & Company
3. Goldman Sachs
4. Bain & Company
5. Boston Consulting Group
6. Apple
7. Microsoft
8. General Electric
9. Nike
10. Bank of America

The 2007 survey also asked students to identify the key sectors they'd most like to work in. Twenty-two percent of all students said management consulting --which also garnered the third-highest pay expectations -- followed by financial services, consumer goods, investment banking and venture capital.
