College students recently ranked Ernst & Young as the top employer to work for in the accounting field and fourth overall in business, according to the 2012 US Undergraduate Universum IDEAL(TM) Employer Survey.

The results of the survey, which included responses from more than 59,000 students at 220 leading universities in the U.S., come as the firm plans to hire approximately 5,500 students in fiscal 2013.

In a release, Dan Black, director of campus recruiting for Ernst & Young, noted that he is particularly pleased with the firm's Global Student Exchange Program, which offers overseas internship opportunities.

"We're finding that young professionals are both bringing increased global experience and demanding it in future employers," Black said. "That's why we're so proud to offer both opportunities for our interns to gain global experience before many of them join us full-time, or for our young professionals to benefit from a range of mobility options shortly after they join us."

Such experience is critical when considering the fact that more than 90 percent of CFOs believe industry-related experience is critical for college graduates seeking accounting and finance jobs, according to a recent survey.
