Think working with the Fortune 1 Company at their U.S.-based headquarters is out of reach? Think again!
The Walmart International Academy was created to attract top, highly talented students who are interested in careers in International business. Due to Walmart’s expanding global presence, there is a need for talented, highly trained individuals within Walmart’s international corporate offices. 
This development program includes up to one year of training in the Walmart U.S.-based corporate offices and is designed to train and familiarize associates to Walmart’s style of business and operation. After a period of training in a leadership program in the Walmart corporate office, the associate will then transfer to the People’s Republic of China to assume a position within that country’s Walmart organization. The time spent at Walmart’s corporate offices will equip the associate with a solid base of functional knowledge and practical skills that will be implemented in his/her new role in China. 
Due to the nature of the program, qualified students must be authorized to work in the United States for a minimum of one year from the starting date of the program and have unrestricted work authorization in the People’s Republic of China. Wal-Mart will not sponsor candidates for a visa or employment authorization in the United States or the People’s Republic of China for this position. Candidates who are in the U.S. on a student visa may be eligible to work in the U.S. during the OPT (Optional Practical Training) portion of their student visa. 
Company Description 
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. (NYSE: WMT) has over 9,600 retail units under 69 different banners in 27 countries. Walmart employs more than 2 million associates, and serves customers and members more than 200 million times per week. All around the world, Walmart’s mission is to save people money, so they can live better. We also see opportunities to help people live better beyond the walls of our stores and clubs. That’s why we support cases that are important to our communities, like education, and why we are working hard to do our part in protecting our planet and conserving our natural resources for generations to come. It’s the reason we joined with Mercy Corps and USAID to help small farmers in Guatemala, and it’s also the reason you see Fair Trade Coffee on the shelves at Sam’s Club. And why every one of our careers aims to innovate locally, globally, ethically, sustainably and with everything possible to save people money and help them live better. By working closely with our communities and suppliers, we can reach beyond just our customers to help improve the lives of people around the globe.
