What It Is

The Management Development Program (MDP) is a three-year rotational program designed to develop core business skills and deep knowledge of the education publishing and technology landscape. Associates rotate through roles in departments such as marketing, operations, product development, UX research, or product management, spending 8–15 months in each rotation. By combining three high-impact rotations with close mentorship and professional development programming, the MDP sets Associates up to be leaders in their next chosen fields.
