Employer branding company Universum recently conducted its American MBA Survey to gain insight into which employers are most attractive to more than 5,000 Master of Business Administration (MBA) students. Google, Apple and Amazon were among the companies that landed in Universum's top 10.

Based on this data, it is apparent that MBA degree seekers find certain employers more attractive than others. However, Bloomberg Businessweek recently set out to see if employers prefer MBA students from certain business schools.

When it comes to Amazon in particular, the company hired 157 MBA program graduates from a sample of institutions Bloomberg Businessweek selected. In terms of U.S. business schools, 14 students from the University of Michigan's Stephen M. Ross School of Business and 11 students from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania were hired by the online retailer. Carnegie Mellon University's Tepper School of Business, Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management and Columbia Business School all saw nine MBAs graduate and go onto work for Amazon.

Other business schools that Amazon has found employees at include Dartmouth College's Tuck School of Business and the University of California, Los Angeles' Anderson School of Management.
