At the end of the program, use the global network you’ve established to explore the right opportunity for you within Edwards.
Participants will gain valuable experience by owning various projects while working side-by-side with functional experts. A dedicated senior level manager is assigned to each individual as a professional mentor. This mentor will guide the MBA graduate through the medical device world and the company, and assist in developing the MBA graduate’s professional skills and business acumen.
Program participants will work in our Corporate Headquarters in Irvine, California unless the particular rotation or project requires travel. Please visit Edwards.com, for information on all of our locations.
