"This year we witnessed interesting shifts in industry preferences among students across the globe," explains Richard Mosley, chief strategist at Universum. "Careers in professional services, banking and strategic consulting all dropped in prestige, while careers in IT, automotive and even manufacturing rose significantly. What we are witnessing is a strong desire among students to work for industries which are more associated with tech innovation which are shaping the future."

Universum, the global leader in employer branding, surveyed over 235,273 students in business, engineering and IT from the 12 largest economies between September 2019 to April 2020. The far-reaching survey asks students which employer characteristics are most influential as they consider future employment, and which employer brands they most admire.
