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:
2. McKinsey & Company
3. Goldman Sachs
4. Bain & Company
5. Boston Consulting Group
8. General Electric
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.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
