London, 28 October 2009- - PricewaterhouseCoopers has earned the second spot on Universum's list of 'The World's Top 50 Most Attractive Employers' for business students.

The ranking is based on a survey of business students from the US, Japan, China, Germany, France, UK, Italy, Russia, Spain, Canada and India.

Tax revenues remained steady at US$6.9 billion. Growth in revenues from this area was impacted by the worldwide decline in corporate deals and restructuring work.

This is the first global index of employer attractiveness by employer branding company Universum, which highlights the world's most powerful employer brands – those companies that excel in talent attraction and retention.

The top five world's most attractive employers in the business ranking include:
