Accelerated Leadership Opportunities

Intel's Accelerated Leadership Program (ALP) is a unique post-MBA leadership development program designed to attract top MBA grads with a passion for technology and who have the potential to be future leaders of Intel.

With the mentorship of influential senior leaders, ALP associates navigate through a series of challenging, vastly diverse, and high-visibility rotations that span the entire company.

After completing the program, associates may return to one of their previous rotation groups, or pursue an opportunity elsewhere within the company at a senior management level.

How to apply

We typically hire ALP associates for full-time positions August through December. Go to and search for ALP.

If you are interested in the ALP, in your resume objective, please indicate your interest in "ALP US" or "ALP China."

The ALP Internship

In addition to the full time post-MBA Accelerated Leadership Program, Intel also offers a 12 week high intensity internship experience for exceptional first year MBA candidates. 

During your summer at Intel you will work on a key project in one of our business groups. You’ll work side-by-side with senior managers to develop strategies and plan execution for initiatives that transform our existing business and lead us into new growth opportunities. Completion of a successful internship could result in an offer for the full-time ALP Rotation.

Additional qualifications—US ALP Class
For associate positions in our US ALP Class you must also have unrestricted right to work in the US. A minimum of 4 years of full-time, professional work experience is required

Additional qualifications—ALP China Class
We also have a limited number of ALP China positions that will help us develop our leadership talent for Intel China. The China program allows you to spend the first two rotations in the US and the third rotation in China, with the final placement in China. Intel ALP China internships are completed in the US as part of the US ALP internship cohort. Mandarin speaking/communication is required.

As a global company, we offer ALP opportunities to make an impact at the following Intel US sites: Hillsboro, OR; Santa Clara, CA; Chandler, AZ; and Folsom, CA. For ALP China, we offer opportunities at Intel China sites including Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Chengdu, Dalian and Xian.
