% of MBAs who want to work there: 7.08%

Headquarters: Seattle, Wash.

Hiring plans: In the last two years alone, the online retailer's full-time and internship programs for B-school students have doubled in size; this year, more than 200 MBA graduates and candidates will join the firm.

What they're looking for: Candidates have the best shot at standing out during an interview where they're asked to solve a problem that would improve customers' experience, said Amazon's MBA program recruiter Dustin Stites.

Why grads want to work there: MBAs feed into one of the company's five programs in operations, retail management, product management, financial analysis or human resources, and work there full time for up to three years. Stites said most employees stay with the company after completing the programs.

And of course, there are some nice perks left over from the dot-com boom; employees can bring their dogs to work every day.
