  4. 4. What are Development Programs? Structured, intense, and often rotational, MBA Development Programs are fast-track programs within companies to develop and groom high-potential MBAs for future leadership roles. They vary a lot from one program to the next as each company tailors its programs to its specific needs: Structure, duration, experiential experiences, function focus, rotations, mentorship and coaching, on-the-job and formal training, etc. However, what all of them have in common is the objective to shape and grow the future top leaders of these organizations, and therefore, the rigorous selection criteria to attract and recruit the right candidates.
