That's right, Google has become the 'Dream Office' for most of the MBA graduates. According to CNN Money, a survey conducted by Universum Communications, that included 5,769 students at 52 business schools showed some really interesting results, as Google came on top for the second year in a row, as the most preferred destination for 23.65% MBA graduates to jump start their career.

Google has an innovative and totally off the book working environment, that is catching up with the 21st century youth at an incredible speed. Google promises what many have found missing from the rest of corporate America. Inspite of Google's nefariously grueling selection process, thousands of MBA graduates appear each year for interviews. For 2007, Google had hired hundreds of MBA graduates. According to Yvonne Agyei (Google Director of Global University Programs), MBA graduates are particularly attracted to Google because they “really get a lot of responsibility right at the outset. MBAs are looking for the opportunity to make an impact.”

Even with Google's increasing popularity, management consulting and financial services that were considered to be the launch pads for MBAs are still in demand, with 20% participants wiling to work in consulting and 19% in financial services. Even, government intelligence agencies and the Department of Defense are fast becoming a viable option for the MBA graduates. For 2008, CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) ranked no.37, whereas it was on no.74 last year. Meanwhile, the FBI is in 47th place, up from 89 last year. And among women MBAs, the Department of Defense – Missiles and Weapons Division ranks No. 99.

At the end of it all, its all about money and MBAs clearly still care about the size of their paychecks. Well, their dream of success and money can be turned into a reality at Google for sure.
