It will be up to you to give robust, insightful analysis that helps the department achieve their objectives.
Your third rotation will be corporate or strategic. You’ll have a regional or global view, in any one of a number of areas. You’ll broaden your perspective and enterprise mindset – and expand on your growing technical and business knowledge.
