25 Most Desirable MBA Employers

Think of it as a popularity contest for companies. Each year, research firm Universum surveys MBA candidates on where they'd most like to work for an exclusive Fortune.com list.

1 of 25
1. Google
% of MBAs who want to work there*: 23.65%
Headquarters: Mountain View, CA
Type of company: Technology
It may not actively acknowledge a desire to hire MBAs specifically, but Google has done a great job of luring such talent anyway. With perks that range from free gourmet food to onsite laundry and tuition reimbursement, it's no wonder B-school grads are drawn to the search engine giant.

For its part, Google says it's looking for "people who are excited to solve cutting-edge problems in their field" for jobs ranging from project management to PR to sales to software.
