What makes it great: Part of Steve Jobs' legacy is one of the strongest tech fanbases in the world -- just look at the long lines that formed outside of Apple stores when the iPhone 5s was released last September. The global brand is now taking steps to create a "smart home" system, controlled by your iPhone, as well as a central repository for healthcare data.

Apple wants its employees to "be inspired every day," and take ownership of projects at a company changing how the world lives. It's also the most valuable company in the U.S., worth almost half a trillion dollars.

What they're looking for: If you sleep with your iPhone next to your head, you're off to a good start. Apple searches for employees that are passionate about its products and idealistic vision, people that are "always on the lookout for better," according to its careers website.

MBAs will be part of strategic business initiatives in operations, sales, software engineering and more.
