"We're delighted with this recognition," said Phil Cotton, South Region chairman at KPMG, which has a base at Marsh Mills.
"At KPMG, we want to enable young people to unlock their potential and build a rewarding career.
"In today's economy, young people face an extremely challenging jobs market.
"As a major employer we want to offer routes to succeed for those with the talent, ambition and drive to fulfil their potential."
Universum, a global talent consultant, develops its index of the top 50 most attractive employers by asking students pursuing business and engineering degrees to identify their "ideal" employer.
Responses are gathered at leading academic institutions in the 12 largest economies: Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, Spain, the US and the UK.
This month, 800 students joined KPMG.
Alongside its traditional graduate recruitment programme, 150 students started KPMG's School Leaver Programme – a six-year scheme that combines work experience with a university degree with a salary, all tuition and university accommodation fees paid, and a professional accountancy qualification.
The programme is designed to enable those that may not otherwise have been able to consider a career in accountancy to do so.
