Ford’s Marketing Leadership Program is an intense, broad and in-depth experience with the disciplines that help answer the many marketing challenges in the new world of branding.
Established in 1989, the Marketing Leadership Program (MLP) is designed to elevate the company's strategic focus on marketing. This program is a venue for participants to become leaders and influence the company through challenging assignments, supporting Ford’s transformation from an auto to an auto and mobility company, promoting a stronger business and making people’s lives better by changing the way the world moves.
MLP offers a select group of top MBAs the opportunity to develop the vision, experience and skills necessary to succeed in marketing positions worldwide. We seek candidates who possess an entrepreneurial spirit, who are motivated by a challenge and have exceptional communication skills. Most importantly, individuals must have the ability to excel in team efforts and the character and tenacity to make a difference.
The full-time program provides a broad marketing foundation through a series of individualized rotations over approximately 5 years. Each rotation is 12-18 months, designed to help ensure a deep level of understanding in the area of focus. Summer internships offer the opportunity to dig into meaty projects and impact core and emerging business. The program provides significant visibility to senior level mentors and a great deal of support and guidance along the way.
