IN THE MBA LEADERSHIP PROGRAM – FINANCE, YOU CAN EXPECT TO:

LEAD AND OWN.

Starting on day one, you will lead processes, people or both. You’ll see Finance having a seat at the table, depended on as a strategic partner, and making real, immediate impact. And you’ll be expected to step in and step up – to make recommendations that directly influence our business. We believe you have the experience, intelligence, and education to help us make smart decisions.


BE SUPPORTED.

Ecolab’s Finance leaders have a reputation for being the best – and the financial history and results to back it up. But beyond technical finance skills, our people are leaders, and we want you to be too. That’s why we are committed to developing our Finance Managers. Gain valuable advice through our mentorship culture, and through hands-on experiences. Our Finance University provides training to all new associates through a combination of classroom presentations and interactive modules. And we’ll help ensure your leadership mindset stays sharp. Our ongoing Leadership Foundations and Excellence trainings will integrate you with peer leaders from various functions and divisions worldwide, throughout your career.


GROW FROM NEW PERSPECTIVES.

From our new MBAs to our Sector Leaders, Ecolab’s culture of rotation builds leaders. Based on performance and business need, Finance Managers can expect new, challenging experiences about every 18-24 months. You’ll encounter new processes, customers, challenges and perspectives, building experiences in the Commercial, Specialty, and Planning & Analysis Finance pillars, with additional focus on global mindset, people management and senior leader advisement. You’ll notice a difference in our development philosophy and in your own potential too.
