Recruiters ranked CMU fourth in finance, seventh in business and 21st in engineering. Overall, CMU was 10th in "The Top 25 Recruiter Picks."

In the top 25 list, 19 were public colleges or universities, one was a member of the Ivy League (Cornell) and the remaining five were private, including Carnegie Mellon and the University of Notre Dame. CMU has the lowest number of undergraduate students (listed at 6,023) in the top 22 and the second lowest number of undergraduates in the top 25.  Only MIT, at 23 overall, has fewer undergraduates than CMU.
