LBS seems like a no brained if you’re determined to work international.

Although idk how many structured paths to “hardware” PM exist from any of those programs, but I’d imagine Haas would be best suited to get you there

like

I interviewed for it at microsoft, the PM role for hardware products seems to be more and more common.

I'm a hardware engineer so that's where I'm comfortable technically, but if I can get into aerospace , renewables or robotics I'm not too picky.

Any idea on the ability to recruit outside if west coast out of Haas?

Cornell shouldn't even be considered. The 2 year program places more into tech finance roles than tech PM roles.
