You will have the opportunity to play a role in the biggest transition happening in retail (and beyond) right now. We are leaning into digital innovation and rapidly transforming our company from the largest brick & mortar retailer into a true omnichannel experience provider, delivering goods and services to our customers whenever, wherever, and however they want them.

From day one, you will have the opportunity to influence decisions at the Fortune 1 Company. Our ongoing transformation ensures countless challenging projects to tackle, strategies to reshape, and changes to manage.

The Walmart Finance MBA Leadership Development Program is a rotational program designed to accelerate the careers of participants as they grow into future leaders in Walmart Finance. Participants exit the program in 24 months with the ability to influence what team they join next. High performing participants will have the opportunity to be considered for a Director promotion upon successful completion of the program.
