Global Management Trainee Gain insight into every aspect of the business, learn from the ground up, gain exposure to senior management, and develop leadership skills and true business experience.
The Global Management Trainee occurs over 10-months and provides a comprehensive systemic view of the Anheuser-Busch InBev (ABI). The program has been developed to allow GMT employees to gain insight into every aspect of the business (with a specific focus on the Brewery Operations and Sales/Marketing divisions), learn from the ground up, gain exposure to senior management, and develop leadership skills and true business experience.
The 10-month training includes a country induction (focus on business operations within the United States), zone induction (conducted jointly with the Canadian trainees) and a global induction (all trainees from across the world to focus on global strategy of ABI). The 10-month training also includes two 10-week field training segments in brewery and region sales office locations as well a 4-month project assignment.
At the end of the 10-month training, the trainees are assigned to an entry-level management position in either Brewery Operations or Sales/Marketing. From the first position on, the trainees are free to build their own careers to include areas and/or experiences that interest them. Throughout the 10-month training and beyond, trainees have extensive interaction with the Zone President, senior vice presidents, and various senior-level directors.
