When I grow up I want to be...?

…an employee of an innovated, technologically savvy, major name band, kick a** company. Is that too much to ask? A part of the whole MBA/b-school process is to research where you want to work once you get your degree. I have been doing just that. I’ve been looking at companies like Apple, Amazon, Google, Nike, Cisco, Adobe…places I would not mind working at all, trying to figure out how I can market myself to get into one of these or something similar, and an MBA is pretty much my next step. I am one of those students who wants to go to b-school because they are switching careers,  and I’m doing a complete 180. I studied sociology in undergrad, because I thought I was going to go to law school, obviously that went out the window. Currently I’m in art school, trying to get my graphic design on, I probably should have studied that in undergrad, but hey I didn’t know back then. Now that I’m doing the graphic design thing I need my MBA to help push me to the next level for these companies, I am just not sure what my concentration should be!! Should I do marketing, e-commerce, general administration?!? So many options. By researching these companies and plenty more, I hope to figure out which concentration would be the best fit for what I’m looking to do. For example, Apple has certain jobs for those with an MBA working with the graphic design department. :ding ding ding: Sounds right up my alley. Now if I could just figure out how to get that job I will be on my way. Any suggestions?!?! Leave it in the comments!

I'm not sure if this is the only track but this is what I know! You should look into any programs that focus on Design, Information and Human Computer Interaction. Often times these programs can be enhanced with an MBA as a dual degree. Some of the best schools I know in these areas? Michigan, Carnegie Mellon, MIT.....the field is super broad and I know people in the programs who do not do any programming. Of course if you want to brush up on Engin 101 they can take you back ;-)

Hmmm...I really like the fact that you're taking graphic design courses. Perhaps I will swipe that idea and do that myself!

Sorry that I'm no help RE career...I'm still figuring that out too, but your interests sound really cool! :)
