The Financial Development Program is designed to provide you with three, one-year experiences, in three different parts of our accounting and finance organization. To supplement this practical and hands-on experience, we will provide individualized learning plans, career counseling, one-on-one mentoring, bi-annual group learning conferences, and group assignments.

In addition, we would expect that you will join us on campus and help us recruit the next group of accounting and finance interns and be actively involved in shaping the future design and content of both the internship and Financial Development Program.
