  • Rank among business students: 3
  • Rank (engineering students): N.A.

Headquarters: London, UK
No. of employees: 184,200

What makes it great: At this Big 4 firm, which rose from fourth place last year, dedicated mentors and an "innovative learning culture" help employees invest in their success early on, says Global Talent Leader Mike Fenlon. That dedication to learning isn't just in the workplace -- PwC recently pledged to invest $60 million and 1 million service hours in youth education as part of a corporate responsibility push.

The firm expanded its reach this year when it completed its acquisition of global management consultancy Booz & Company, which it's renaming "Strategy&."

What they're looking for: Openings exist for new grads in accounting, computer science, engineering and more. But PwC receives 3 million applications a year for 20,000 spots worldwide, so the competition is stiff. To stand out, show off your technical expertise, broad skills and leadership abilities. If you can, getting an internship there is highly recommended.
