European MBA to work at Google, Amazon, Facebook, etc.


I'm looking for a good MBA to work at one of the big tech firms but in their European offices. Firms like Google, Amazon, Facebook. I understand that a lot of these companies have their European HQs in Ireland, so I was thinking about Smurfit or Trinity.

But then I saw LBS mentioned as a good school for this career path, so I don't know what to think now. And there also seems to be some tech growth on the mainland, Google has offices in Paris, so I am also open to an MBA program in France/Germany/Spain. I don't have many geographical restrictions.

I looked at Linkedin but there doesn't seem to be much consensus.

Can somebody help? Ideally I would like to apply to 3 or 4 or 5 b-schools.

I have two thoughts on this:

- placements are most likely to be country specific. If you wanted to work in Google's Paris office, I would study in France and do my MBA at a top school like HEC Paris, for instance.

- I am not sure that these companies hire a lot of MBAs for their Europe offices, and that's probably why you're not seeing much consensus on LinkedIn. Maybe ask the HR people at these firms to get more information?

LinkedIn is totally clear: ESSEC, HEC and INSEAD are the schools to target in France for Google. https://www.linkedin.com/vsearch/p?keywords=MBA&company=Google&openAdvancedForm=true&companyScope=CP&locationType=I&countryCode=fr&rsid=2007051438867998574&orig=ADVS

Thanks! I was just looking at Google employees in all European countries, but you are right it makes more sense to look at people in specific countries.
