Walmart E3 Strategic Finance Development Program 2021 MBA Internship Senior Manager

The E3 Strategic Finance Development Program is a highly selective opportunity to work on challenging and impactful projects to drive Walmarts global business forward. This is a chance to be part of the largest retail transformation in history. As Walmart continues to adapt alongside shifting customer preferences, we need a robust pipeline of talented leaders with the strategic, analytical, and change management skills to deliver on our mission: to help people save money so they can live better. The E3 Program is an important way Walmart builds that pipeline.

The cohort-driven E3 internship allows interns to build broad business experience, gain executive exposure and expedite professional development. It serves as a talent pipeline into the Walmart E3 Strategic Finance Program.

  • Education: Mentoring, technical skill development, and individual coaching.

Interviews will consist of one round on campus with behavioral and case exercises, and one final round virtually with the Finance Leadership team. Candidates with offers will have the opportunity to visit the Walmart Global Headquarters in Bentonville, Arkansas.

What can you expect from your Internship Project?

  • Lead projects throughout a 10-week summer assignment. We work hard to identify meaningful, well-scoped projects with great leaders to help you deliver value and own a process end-to-end during the summer.
