New Graduate Leadership Development & Rotational Programs

As you finish your degree program, you may be looking for ways to build leadership potential while you gain experience in your field. Leadership development and rotational programs provide you with ongoing mentorship, comprehensive experiences, and directed training across a range of business areas within a company. Companies use these 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!

PLEASE NOTE: Many of these programs have special recruitment timelines (usually in the fall semester between September and October). Each program has unique components and length of time, usually ranging from two - five years.

Here are just a few of the companies who offer these programs, but it is not a complete list. You should research companies or fields of interest to you in order to locate similar programs. An additional resource is the Leadership Development and Rotational Program Directory.
