Employer branding consultancy Universum Global has unveiled the 2013 edition of its annual World’s Most Attractive Employers list.
Drawing from the responses of almost 200,000 business and engineering students from the world’s 12 largest economies, the list is divided into two sets of rankings: the top business graduate employers, and the top engineering graduate employers.
Google topped both lists. The technology giant was trailed in the business list by notable graduate employers PwC (ranked no. 4), McKinsey & Company (12), Boston Consulting Group (16), Bank of America (23), HSBC (26) and Bain & Company (27).
Both McKinsey & Company and Boston Consulting Group were also prominent in the list of the world’s best engineering graduate employers, ranked 26 and 41 respectively.
Dozens of the featured graduate employers are also present in Inside Careers’ own Employer A-Z, many of which are hiring now.
