Early Career Leadership Programs

 

"It’s important to be open and ready for opportunities that happen every minute of every day... to learn, reflect, take input and build it into capability."

- Susan Peters, Senior Vice President, Human Resources

Successful people are like successful ideas. They don’t happen overnight but need the right environment to reach their full potential. That’s why every year we invest over $1 billion in developing our people, and why GE is consistently ranked #1 in leadership development.

We offer multi-year rotational programs for emerging leaders to build functional expertise and a strong foundation for future leadership roles. All of our programs include a special leadership week with our Crotonville team and peers from all disciplines.
