Today, many students choose to earn a Master of Business Administration (MBA) with the hopes of launching new careers. However, these students are not just looking for any job - they are looking for the ideal position.

Recently, Universum spoke with more than 5,700 MBA students across the U.S.and the world to see where these students would most like to work after graduation. According to the report, Google is the top choice for not only American MBA candidates, but business students around the globe as well.

Landing a coveted position working for the tech giant might be feasible for hardworking MBA candidates, as the company is rapidly expanding. In 2010, Google employed 24,400 people, according to its website. By the end of 2012's first quarter, this figure expanded to 33,077, marking a 35% increase in less than two years.
