What is the Universum Talent Survey?
The Universum Talent Survey, ranks companies that business and engineering students in the world’s 12 largest economies find most desirable to work for.
“The WMAE rankings are compiled from the Universum Talent Surveys, conducted in Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, South Korea, UK and US,” the company explains. “These markets represent 70 percent of the world’s economy. The field period for the data collection was from October 2016 to May 2017.”
