- Google,Disney, and Amazon are the companies where business students most want to work.
- That’s according to research firm Universum, which asked over 20,000 undergraduate business students to pick the most desirable employer.

Google is at the top of the list yet again.
The tech giant consistently performs well on Glassdoor’s annual rankings of the top workplaces in America. It pays well, too. So it’s no surprise that US undergraduate business students find the search giant to be the most desirable employer.
Universum, a global research and advisory firm, surveyed 20,879 undergraduates studying business at 352 different universities in the US. The business students were asked to choose the companies and organisations where they’d most like to work.
Google, which specialises in online advertising technologies, cloud computing, software, and search, landed at the top of the list for a fourth consecutive year. Apple, Netflix, Morgan Stanley, and the FBI also made an appearance on the list.
