The president may not appreciate them but you know what? Screw that guy. JD and LB don't need him when they've got the votes of MBA Candidates. CNN Money's annual ranking of the top companies business students want to work for is out and apparently these kids want a piece of James D and his li'l buddy more than ever before, clocking in at 7 and 3 respectively, moving up one and two slots each, with the extra love for GS being attributed to the gluttons for punishment at GS just dying to have Matt Taibbi throw scalding hot coffee in their faces (the school even added a class to prepare its graduates for that exact scenario this year). Also making progress with the business leaders of tomorrow was Citi, which jumped from the 59th to the 51st slot, just losing out in popularity to UBS. Still beat HSBC (76) though, so, something to be happy about.
