Want free career or academic advice
from a professional?

Would graduating from an Ivy League college ensure or help me land my dream job (management in a large company, i.e. Boeing, Siemens, Lockheed Martin)?

I go to a great institution now, I'm a first generation college student, and I'm looking to become the successful business woman I know is my place in this world. I was considering transferring to an Ivy League college to not only gain the experience and training from a great college but also ensure a great job in my future.

Graduating from a reputable institution can have its perks. However nothing is guaranteed. More important is your level of focus on exactly what is it you want to do as a career. Unless your finically taken care of, Ivy league schools come with a price tag that can ensue debt. Weight your options.

Its been proven that one can attend a local college, network/volunteer and have exceptional growth in the work field

Best of luck

I have to agree with Tayvon.

Technical companies like the ones you listed, hire a great deal from top schools like the UofIL, Northwestern, UofOhio, Purdue, etc.

Nothing is guaranteed but certainly will help you. If you already have a good career progress, great education and know where you want to land I won't discard that option.
