Munich. The BMW Group has once again earned top ratings in the Universum Young Professional Survey 2018 employer ranking published today, which polled professionals with one to eight years’ job experience. The company was again voted number one by business students (2017: number one) and number two (2017: number three) by engineers. It is particularly encouraging that the BMW Group came in third (2017: fifth) among IT specialists, behind only Google and Microsoft, and was the most popular automotive employer.

Milagros Caiña-Andree, member of the Board of Management of the BMW Group, responsible for Human Resources, was delighted with the results: “Word has clearly got out that we are an established company in the tech scene.” She added: “The profound change in our industry provides a historic opportunity for young talents to shape the mobility of the future – and that is something IT specialists are excited about, too.”

Back in September, the Trendence Young Professional Barometer 2018 had already named the BMW Group Germany’s most attractive employer. A total of 18,000 professionals with one to ten years’ job experience were surveyed. As in previous years, the BMW Group was able to maintain the leading position it has occupied since 2012.

Other surveys show that the BMW Group is not only an attractive employer for young professionals in the highly attractive automotive industry. In the Trendence Graduate Barometer 2018 published in the spring, which polled a total of 55,000 graduating students, the BMW Group took first place in both the Engineering and Business categories (2017: first in each category). Among IT students, the BMW Group came in second (2017: third) and was Germany’s highest-ranked automobile manufacturer. The company was therefore able to improve on its performance from the previous year.

The BMW Group also remains one of the most attractive major automotive companies at international level, according to the Universum Global Ranking 2018, which surveyed 229,000 students in the 12 biggest economies. The company ranked 17th in the Business category (2017: 16th) and fourth in IT and Engineering (2017: fifth). It remains by far the most attractive automotive company in both categories.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
