SAN FRANCISCO — Google tops the list when it comes to where U.S. business students want to work after graduating, according to a survey released on Nov. 14 by brand specialty firm Universum.
The California-based Internet firm placed among the top 10 "ideal employers" for college students in an array of majors including liberal arts, natural sciences and information technology.
Google, Apple and the Walt Disney Co., in that order, were considered the best places for business majors to work, based on the Universum survey of 61,726 students at 345 universities.
When it came to engineering students, U.S. space agency NASA was top choice with Google coming in second.
Google also topped Universum's lists this year of the "world's most attractive employers" in the eyes of students in an array of countries seeking business or engineering careers.
Universum specializes in helping firms "attract, recruit and retain ideal talent while helping talent learn about ideal employers," according to its website.
