The strong brand and global reach of Disney (DIS) draw in MBAs who want to work in entertainment on a global scale. New MBAs work throughout the company in everything from finance to studio operations.

A favorite perk among employees is free entrance to Disney-owned theme parks for themselves and friends and family, says Julie Hodges, the company's head of talent acquisition.

What they look for: Disney wants MBAs with a passion for their business, but also for the company's brands, whether you're an ESPN-loving sports fanatic or a Star Wars junkie.

Military experience is also a big plus for Disney's recruiters. Since 2004, the company's "Heroes Work Here" initiative has aimed to hire more veterans.
