Finally, I have found the right forum! So far, I had little luck in finding good info about LDPs and rotational programs.

I have two questions:
1. Which Auto Manufacturers regularly recruit for LDPs from B schools and in what numbers? I know that GM does but what about others like Ford,Nissan etc.
2. Being an International student, what are my chances of getting into an LDP of any industry?

I work for an Indian automobile manufacturer and have experience in both sales and service.Post MBA, I would like to get into a rotational program and then possibly do marketing.


You have two things working against you: LDPs don't like to hire internationals because the H1B lottery can derail the process. Also, at least Ford and GM seem especially uninterested in foreign students and are unwilling to sponsor.

1. Automotive LDP: GM, Ford, Nissan, and Toyota
2. Nissan is the only one of those that sponsors international students.

In general, it's harder to find jobs outside of tech, consulting, and finance in the US. LDP is not more difficult for international students than general management, marketing, etc.

You should! Actually, according to our data at www.transparentmba.com, these LDPs have among the highest "effective hourly wages" that we see in our entire dataset.

Most of these roles are listed under their respective company on our site, but you can also dive into "corporate strategy" as a function - some of these roles tend to be LDPs.

There is a lot of consensus on the top finance and consulting gigs. I'm not interested in those, but rather in Leadership Development Programs. What are some of the best LDPs out there? What benefits do these LDPs offer to its graduates?

Hi,
could you explain in more detail what you're interested in?

Great thread, can't believe I missed it all these days!

Does anyone have any info on LDPs in Europe? Especially in the Energy sector?

I asked this question in Insead forum and got feedback about BP program
here's the link for anyone interested
http://www.bp.com/en/global/bp-careers/ ... ramme.html

Here is another link for energy Ldps
http://www.mba-exchange.com/candidates/ ... 8-session-

I am shooting for an LDP in energy post MBA
If anyone has personal experience going through one of these programs, it would be great to hear your story and get feedback!

Cheers,
Harsha

I heard a lot of good comments about Center for Creative Leadership. It is a five day program created to help middle to senior level managers lead in the "middle zone". Managing in the "middle zone" is about connecting strategy to the everyday work.
The program provides a highly personal experience that is tailored to help each leader get the most out of sessions by providing a safe environment for learning and skill practice. So may be find some information on their website. Or find some opinions about them. Especially good to read opinions of graduates.

I partially agree with you, but it is possible to develop your skills. As I understand the leader is somebody the most interested in the certain activity, whether you gather your friends for a barbecue party or start a new business. The most frightening thing to me is to be indifferent to anything. I see such people every day, and that's my main motivator not to be passive
