I know you already have a lot on your plate, but getting some sort of technical certification down the line cannot hurt. If you are to work for BMW at the management level, how much more wouldn't it help if you not only know business, but also have a general understanding of how the actual products work?
I would like to work with management for a tech-orriented company, whether in automotives, or communications, aviation, etc. In my case, the plan is to study engineering first, then business.
edit: yeah, the internships are important. Companies tend to like people who have been good interns with them. Also, apply for internships with several automotive manufacturers when you apply to BMW. That experience can still look good to them when you try again (in case you aren't able to get the internship with BMW). Also, apply for internships with big corporations. Even if you haven't worked for them, and even if you haven't worked in the automotive industry, some experience with big-money companies still looks better to a big-money company when reading a resume.
