    I am currently graduating from a top school as an undergraduate. I am going to work for a few years but it's always been a dream to get an MBA from a top 5 school. Apples newest hire graduated from Wharton school of business and it seems to be a trend with their senior execs... Does anyone else have the same ambitions?

    I can say with absolute confidence that you are the only one to have such aspirations.

    I wouldn't want to be an executive at a company that off shores so much of.their work. Especially with the conditions.

    Correct. I want to be a senior Apple exec, but couldn't be bothered doing the study beforehand. 4+ years study? Pfffffh...hardly worth it for just 60 million or so in stock....

    ;)

    You will be hard pressed to find a major corporation that does not employ some form of outsourcing. I'm not making excuses for apple, but rather painting a rather sad picture that many (most?) fortune 500 companies outsource some facet of their business.

    I can see working for a company that you believe in and want to succeed. Whether that's at apple which makes insanely great products or a hospital that is working to cure cancer (where I work). Having an emotional investment in the goal of the company certainly helps :)

    I would argue that it's not from where Browett graduated B-school, but his body of work post B-school that got him the Apple job.
