Internet search giant Google has emerged as the world's top employer for MBA graduates for the third year in row, according to the Fortune magazine.
Google has been ranked at the first place in the list of top 100 employers for B-school graduates, with over 20 per cent MBA graduates wishing to work at the firm for its stellar reputation and innovative work environment.
The Top 100 MBA employers' list, comprising of firms where B-school students most want to work, was compiled by Fortune.Com based on an exclusive survey by research firm Universum.
The magazine stated that Google is still hiring amid the downturn and its job postings seek MBAs for marketing, people operations, finance, advertising, sales, general management, partnership development and other openings.
The search giant is followed by consulting firm McKinsey & Company (2nd), Bain & Co (third), financial services major Goldman Sachs Group (fourth), and tech giant Apple (fifth).
