Entry-level job Web site CollegeGrad.com named KPMG as the top-ranked employer among the Big Four accounting firms in a poll of the site's users.

KPMG finished fourth in last year's poll, but came out in front this year. The site credits the firm's college grad initiatives and the expansion of its global programs. KPMG implemented a global internship program and a global new-hire training program in 2007. However, KPMG's projected college recruiting numbers for 2008 are projected to be the lowest of the Big Four, according to the site.

When asked which Big Four firm they would prefer to work for, 32 percent of the site's users chose KPMG, compared to 25 percent who voted for PricewaterhouseCoopers, 23 percent for Deloitte & Touche and 20 percent for Ernst & Young.

In addition to the student recognition, KPMG was also recently named a CollegeGrad.com Top Entry Level Employer and placed in the top three among CollegeGrad.com's Top Intern Employers.
