Leadership Development and Rotational Programs
As you finish your degree program, you may be looking for ways to build leadership potential as you gain experience in your field. Leadership development and rotational programs provide you with in-depth experiences, ongoing mentorship, and targeted training across a range of business areas within a company. Companies usually use these types of programs to hire interns or post-graduates and train them through rotational programs (i.e. rotating through different parts of a company) or specific, structured training programs. The goal is to recruit and develop leaders for their organization.
It is important to note that many of these programs have special recruitment timelines (usually in the fall semester). Each program may have unique components, length of time, pre-selected rotating work assignments, optional rotating work assignments or specific, in-depth experience in one area.
Here are some sample companies who offer these programs, but it is not a complete list so be sure to research companies or fields of interest to you to find out if they offer similar programs:
