A SURVEY of more than 200,000 business and engineering students from 12 of the world’s largest economies named Grant Thornton one of the top 50 most attractive global business employers, placing 35th. The survey was conducted as part of the Universum Annual Student Survey.

“We are honored by this award, and it is a testament to the 35,000 Grant Thornton people working in 120 countries who make Grant Thornton the firm that it is,” said Grant Thornton CEO Ed Nusbaum.

The rankings are based on the opinions of business and engineering students from top universities in the world’s 12 largest economies: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, UK and USA.

Hisham Farouk, Managing Partner of Grant Thornton UAE said, “This is a great accomplishment which supports our ambition to retain and attract the best people who can continue to add value to our dynamic clients.”

Earlier this year, Grant Thornton was named International Accounting Bulletin’s 2013 “Accounting Network of the Year,” largely based on leading the major global accounting organisations with growth of 10.4%, as well as strong thought leadership in the profession on critical global accounting issues.
