Hello Expert

I have a confusion regarding post MBA goal.
I am currently working in Transportation industry in the engineering or design profile (7 years)
as a career goal post MBA I prefer to stay in my industry & I aspire to work as an Operations Manager in an infrastructure equipment firm (train manufacturers to be specific) and understand the best practices across process chains.
From MBA I intend to learn the non-technical & process related know hows.

To give a clear picture I am listing down some of the companies I have worked & intend to work post MBA in management positions

ALSTOM Transport
Bombardier Transport
Hyundai Rotem.
GE Transportation.
Bharat Earth Movers Ltd (BEML)
Trinity Industries

But the problem is that I checked the Bschools websites none of these companies are listed in the recruiting companies list.
So if my target employers are not hiring from Top Bschools. Why would a Top Bschool give me admit?

Need suggestion do I need to modify my post MBA goals?
Desperately need some information regarding this

Hey alokspa

Thanks for getting in touch! Very interesting goal! A little niche but hey, who doesn't love trains!? One idea would be to see if your target programs have a transportation club. I think Kellogg might. Reach out to the club and see who is hiring on campus that fits into your goals. You're on target...schools want to know that they can help you get a job, so it helps if the types of companies you are interested in working for are hiring on campus. Also, make sure you can't get the type of job you want *without* an MBA. Lastly, perhaps a different sort of post-MBA goal for you to consider would be consulting in the transportation industry? Take a look at the McKinsey/Bain/BCGs of the world and see what type of work they are doing in this sector...what I like about the consulting approach is that it definitely gives you the best practices that you are looking for.

I hope that helps!
