In 2020, Universum, an employer branding specialist, released its list of most attractive employers for US students. Tesla ranked at the top of the list at number one, Teslarati reported back in November of last year.

SpaceX came in at number 2 — playing a bit of musical chairs in comparison with 2019’s report, which held SpaceX as number one and Tesla as number 2. Teslarati noted that it was interesting to see that Tesla was the only automaker to make Universum’s Top 10 lists for both engineering students and business students, for which it ranked number 8. For business students, Tesla is also the only automaker in the top 10. The nearest automaker, Daimler, was listed at 65.

The top 10 for engineering were Tesla, SpaceX, Lockheed Martin, Google, Boeing, NASA, Apple, Microsoft, The Walt Disney Company, and Amazon. For computer science, Tesla ranked at number 5. Google reigned king in this one, while Apple was the queen.

A total of 42,738 students from 323 universities participated in the Universum survey.
