Hello Experts

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

CRRC
ALSTOM Transport
Bombardier Transport
Hyundai Rotem.
GE Transportation.
CSR.
CNR.
Kawasaki
Bharat Earth Movers Ltd (BEML)
Stadler,
Trinity Industries
Uralvagonzavod.

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

Regards
Alok

I think it is good for you to be thinking about these things now- one of the ways you can get a better sense of the employment climate at your target schools is to get in touch with students in the operations manangement or transportation clubs at schools that interest you. Ask them who the key employers are and then you might want to mention one of your real target firms and one of the schools key hiring firms for ops/transportation. I think the skills you will learn in the MBA will be helpful. Remember also that adcom wants to make sure you have thought through your career goals but they know that people don't always go to work for the firm that they target in the admissions process. But I think you are wise to think about your schools and get to know their unique situations so that you can target your applications to be a good fit for each school.
