Amazon Launches leadership Program For MBA Students

Amazon announced the launch of its flagship leadership development program 'Amazon Future Builders Program' (AFBP) for students enrolled in premier B-Schools in India. AFBP is aimed at MBA students who want to pursue a career at Amazon. The program allows students to gain experience across Amazon's businesses through a two month 'Incubator' period, followed by a 24-30 month period where they gain domain expertise in particular 'Lines of Business' (LoBs).


The in depth business experience will be augmented with learning, training, networking, and mentorship opportunities. The eight week 'Incubator' period provides AFBP participants an opportunity to gain exposure across varied lines of business such as AWS, Consumer, HR, Advertising, Devices, Operations, Finance and Video.


For graduating MBA students, there is no minimum work experience required to join AFBP. There are two ways to be selected for AFBP.


♦ First year MBA students can apply for a summer/autumn internship and can qualify for a pre-placement offer (PPO) at the end of the internship.


♦ Final year MBA students can apply for direct hiring through final placements at campus.


Swati Rustagi, Director, HR, Amazon India said, “We have worked backwards from the business needs to curate a student hiring program which offers a unique value proposition. AFBP is designed to transform students into well rounded business leaders who demonstrate the ability to think critically, solve complex business problems and are well assimilated into our peculiar culture which will enable them to build a long term career with Amazon.”
