The answer: it depends (at least somewhat) on what they study.
Last year a company called Universum surveyed 56,900 college students and produced a ranking list of the “ideal” employers for students in five different fields: business, engineering, IT, natural sciences, and humanities/liberal arts.
The number one companies by field are:
- Business: Google
- Engineering: NASA
- IT: Google
- Natural Sciences: National Institutes of Health
- Humanities/Liberal Arts: Teach for America
