Summer 2022 Start Date

The Opportunity

Endless opportunities abound at the Fortune 1 company to jump start your post-college career via Walmart’s Accounting & Finance Development Program (AFDP).  We are searching for exceptional leader-potential students to participate in our program, an exclusive two-year Accounting & Finance Development Program upon graduation.  Each year, a limited number of candidates are selected to launch their career in an accelerated development rotational program that places them on a career fast track at the world’s largest retailer. Opportunities exist in a range of different business areas.

The Rotations

The opportunity spans two years working in four, 6-month challenging yet very rewarding rotations on teams with wide-ranging responsibilities. You will have the chance to work on challenging, innovative, and strategically relevant projects that will drive our business forward and impact not only the business, but our customers.  Through a hands-on experience, you will learn how to navigate and own projects and critical business activities in a dynamic team environment.  Accounting and finance experience can be gained through teams in Strategy, Operations, Merchandising, Treasury, Capital Markets, Tax, Controller’s Office, Supply Chain, Marketing, Financial Services, Real Estate, Forecasting, Planning & Analysis (FP&A) and many more!

The Experience

There is no substitute for ‘feet-on-the-ground’ experience.  You will encounter our culture-in-action by participating in key corporate functions and other events with Walmart associates from around the world.  You will also benefit from leadership development, professional mentorship, and technical training.  AFDP associates also have exclusive exposure to Senior Walmart Leaders, including CEO/CFO-level executives.  These activities will allow you to learn more about Walmart and socialize with other AFDPs.

The Requirements

Students pursuing a BS/BA in Accounting, Finance, Economics, Business, Strategy, or other business-related fields will be considered (3.0 minimum GPA, but higher performance taken into account).  In addition, six credit hours of accounting upon graduation is required.

The Intangibles

More important than the focus of your study is the enthusiasm you bring to the role.  You must demonstrate the ability to grasp concepts quickly and make your presence felt.  Intellectual curiosity is essential, as you embark upon your rotations you should be a student-of-the-retail-business, while adding value to your team.  Your style must be forward and persuasive as you are asked to solve problems with a high degree of complexity.  Throughout the rotations, you will be evaluated based on your performance across five metrics:  Critical Thinking, Analytical Ability, Interaction/Communication, Leadership and Potential.
