Are you finishing your studies at KEDGE and beginning to look for leads for the future? Have you considered trying out a Graduate Programme after you finish to boost your career in a major company? Come and discover what Mars has to offer. It has two Graduate Programmes, one in Leadership and Management and the other in Purchasing Logistics.
What is a Graduate Programme and what are the advantages of doing one?
A graduate programme is a recruitment tool for large companies that lets them recruit leading students, train them throughout the programme (between 1 and 3 years), and integrate them into their workforce. The objective is to be able to offer them management positions, which are often reserved for people with more experience and seniority.
There are many benefits for those who decide to participate in a graduate programme, and not only the chance to move quickly into lucrative positions. With the promotional spirit of a graduate programme, there’s also an opportunity to work abroad in international offices, regularly change positions and job duties, as well as the opportunity to build an internal, inter-departmental network.
