Statoil ranks for the fifth year in a row as the most popular choice of employer among Norwegian engineering graduates, while economics students put it in third place.

This emerges from a survey by the international Universum consultancy, which covers 1 528 engineering and economics students at 11 university-level institutions in Norway.

Conducted annually in several European countries since 1997, the poll asked students to choose their favourite place to work from a list of 138 different Norwegian employers.
