Universum’s 2015 Top Employers (Including Retailers): Part 1 — the U.S.

Universum is the global leader in employer branding. Annually, it conducts student surveys to determine their ideal employers —  including retailers. In Part 1 of our two posts on these surveys, the views of U.S. students are highlighted. In Part 2, global/foreign student preferences will be highlighted. 
The 2015 Universum U.S. Undergraduate Student Survey results are based on the responses of thousands of undergraduates: ““This list represents this year’s Ideal Employers for U.S. business students. Students choose an unlimited number of employers they would consider working for from a list of 230. From their ‘considered’ employers they choose their top five ‘Ideal’ employers. The Ideal Employer Rankings represent the companies with the most ‘Ideal’ votes.”
