Globally, business students chose Google as their top employer for the fourth consecutive year.

Clean_DeskEach year, Universum surveys 140,000 college business and engineering students in a dozen global markets about their most coveted employers. In May, we reported on the results for U.S. students. Globally, business students chose Google (GOOG) as their top employer for the fourth consecutive year, elevated Procter & Gamble (PG) into the top three, and knocked Apple (AAPL) out of the top 10. They delivered setbacks for two of the Big Four accounting firms, but pushed all three management consulting companies—McKinsey, Bain, and Boston Consulting Group—higher up the list. Of the nine financial-services companies on the list, only two improved their positions, including HSBC (HBC), which catapulted to No. 26, from No. 51 in 2011.
