What schools have the best ties to the auto industry [#permalink] New post 14 Jun 2013, 17:22
I've been toying with the idea of concentrating on Technology with a focus on what is now dubbed automobile infotainment systems (the center console programs that connect with your ipod/smartphone/etc.) as this would marry my interest with tech and cars. Ross seems like an obvious choice, but what other schools would have good connections to the auto industry? Thank you!

Ross Ross Ross. Also since you have a tech angle, I'd consider looking at Stanford, MIT, Haas, Anderson. If you want to work for a specific manufacturer then you could be better off going more local (eg Carlson, Wisconsin)

I have worked for two different automotive companies and can tell you companies will do the normal recruiting trip to major MBA programs, but they also love to recruit local. Audi is based in Herndon VA and I would bet they have a number of GTown and GW graduates.

The company I currently work for has a much larger recruiting operation, but when I was working for Porsche in Atlanta it seemed everyone was from Gtech, Emory, or Georgia State.

Hope this helps anyone who trips across this posting.
