Accelerated Leadership Program

Intel's Accelerated Leadership Program (ALP) is a unique post-MBA leadership development initiative designed to attract top MBA graduates. With the mentorship of influential senior leaders, ALP associates navigate through a series of challenging, vastly diverse, and high-visibility rotations that span the entire company.

After completing the program, associates may return to one of their previous rotation groups, or pursue an opportunity elsewhere within the company at a senior management level.


'As an ALP associate, I was able to work on challenging projects and build my network. Now as the director of the program I can draw on my experiences in ALP to guide new associates in their journey.' -- Tabassum Rahman, ALP '11, MIT Sloan, ALP Program Director

The ALP Internship

In addition to the full-time post-MBA Accelerated Leadership Program, Intel also offers a 12​-week, high-intensity summer internship experience for exceptional first-year MBA candidates.

During this internship, you will contribute to a key project in one of our business groups. You will work side-by-side with senior managers to develop strategies and plan execution for initiatives that transform our existing business and lead us into new growth opportunities. Completion of a successful internship may result in an offer for the full-time ALP Rotation.
