List of FT Financial Leadership Development Programs, and other such things

Hey everyone,

In thanks for all of the valuable info and advice I've gotten from WSO over the last couple years, I thought I'd 'pay it forward' and share the list I made of FT FLDP-type programs that I applied to (or seriously thought about applying to) during my senior year. I know several people in the past, myself included, have wanted to know about programs other than the usual GE, Lockheed, etc, but no list ever turned up, so I went ahead and did the research to find out.

Here's the link:
A few notes:

a) The way I went about finding these programs was by going to the careers site of every company in the Fortune 300 and looking for them. A few may have come from other sources too.

b) This list was created in summer/fall of 2009, so of course some of this information may have changed since then.

c) I found many more programs than this during my search, but unfortunately I no longer have a comprehensive list, so this is only the ones I considered more seriously. There are plenty more programs, including some really great ones at top companies that for one reason or another I didn't consider. If you're really interested, I'd recommend further investigation.

d) A few of these programs are not F300, and some are also not exactly the same as an FLDP, but if not, they're other things I found that were interesting enough to apply to, so it might be worth taking a look.

Hope it helps someone out there - let me know if you have any questions.

This is a fantastic contribution. These programs are typically a top choice for students looking to go into industry.

Thanks guys - what comes around goes around I guess.

Another note - I stopped at #300 because I had found what seemed like enough programs for me to apply to. Obviously, #s 301-500 are likely to have good programs as well, so by all means search those too.

Hey nice work. I was wondering if anyone has started to make a similar list with the HR department email and phone numbers. I would love to call up some the HR people and get more info on their programs.

Anyone know if you have to be coming out of undergrad to apply to most of these, or will they accept candidates with a few years of work experience? Thanks, all. And thanks for the great list.
