If you are working toward an MBA or Master’s degree, then you will be considered for our Leadership Development Program Internship.

That’s why you’ll complete a 10 week summer internship where you’ll have exposure, influence and opportunity in entertainment, technology and communications.

Development Program

To be considered for this program, you must be in your final year of your MBA or Master’s program, or have completed one within the last year. Technical undergrad degrees are a plus. You’ll also need three or more years of full-time work experience, and we find our most successful candidates have a talent for collaborating on complex solutions and have had supervisory responsibilities in previous roles. Be ready for an adventure and have an eagerness to thrive in a range of leadership positions as you progress through possibilities in a variety of locations like the Greater Dallas and Atlanta areas, Southern California or to other locations where the program offers job assignments. These job assignment locations are variable and subject to change at any time for the needs of the business. And most of all, here at AT&T, the drive to transform people’s lives through technology will be your most valuable asset.
