% of MBAs who want to work there*: 14.34%
Headquarters: New York, NY
Hiring plans: Unlike some of its less fortunate investment banking rivals, Goldman not only survived this year's financial upheaval, it's still hiring MBAs. The firm, now a
bank holding company, offers a 10-week summer internship program, from which new associates are often plucked.
What they're looking for: "We look for people who are interested in the financial markets, business and how organizations work," says Gia Moron, a Goldman spokeswoman.
Despite the financial crisis fallout, Goldman Sachs has kept a golden reputation and continues to rank very high among MBA students ready to launch a career in banking.
B-school grads are also attracted to the opportunity to get even more education at Goldman Sachs University, an extensive training program for incoming associates.
