Grant Thornton is one of the 50 ‘World’s most attractive global employers’ for a fourth consecutive year, according to business students who took part in the Universum Talent Survey.

The survey asks more than 225,000 business and engineering/IT students from 12 of the world’s largest economies which employers they hold in the highest regard.
Ed Nusbaum, CEO of Grant Thornton International Ltd says, “Grant Thornton is committed to providing a distinctive and collaborative work environment. Being named as one of the world’s most attractive employers for the fourth-year running demonstrates that our approach to developing an encouraging and forward-thinking workplace is paying dividends.

“Creating a work environment with rewarding career paths and that allow our people to feel engaged and empowered is a fundamental part of our wider mission to help unlock growth in our clients and in our communities.”

The rankings are based on the opinions of business and engineering/IT students from top universities in the world’s 12 largest economies: Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK and US. Cumulatively, these markets represent 70 percent of the world’s economy.
