Dell Finance Development Program in Bayan Lepas, Malaysia
Dell Technologies - Finance Development Program
Dell Technologies is looking for undergraduates to join Dell’s Finance Development Program (FDP), a global two year rotational program structured to develop Dell’s future finance leadership. The program combines four, six-month rotations with MBA style coursework to provide participants with a wide breadth of experiences and an advanced knowledge of Dell’s finance systems, policies, and processes. FDP is unique in that it offers increased visibility/networking with managers and executives, career development planning, soft skill training, developmental workshops, and a robust feedback/performance review process.
The coursework spans four semesters, parallel to the four rotations, and is divided between individual classwork and team case studies in the first year, and global team simulations and project work in the second year. Courses are taught by subject matter experts within Dell’s CFO leadership team and include topics such as financial statement analysis, investor relations, go-to-market strategy, field sales strategy and business management, mergers and acquisitions, treasury concepts, tax, cost accounting, pricing, advanced revenue recognition accounting, business transformation as well as in depth case studies. Coursework and simulations are designed to enhance the participant’s knowledge of Dell finance, accounting, business and sales operations, and enable process improvement and critical thinking in rotations.
The six-month rotations place participants in various positions across the CFO organization. Example rotations include Treasury, Sales Strategy and Planning, Global Reporting, Special Pricing, Services, Global Operations, Business Controls, Sales Enablement and Financial Planning and Analysis. First semester FDPs will focus heavily on ramping into the business and executing on the job. FDPs in their second and third rotations will increase program involvement in addition to the job, typically through leadership roles, and begin to career plan. Fourth semester FDPs have access to specialized roles, and work with management and their respective networks to enter the Dell business through final placement post-program completion. International assignments are possibilities for top performers in their fourth rotation. Assignment placement is dependent on work performance, program performance, grades in curriculum, and current business needs.
Typical responsibilities within the four assignments include:
Interactions and reporting responsibilities to senior management and executives
Statistical analysis, planning, budgeting and forecasting
Field support and supporting sales programs
Building analytical models, and predictive models using data analytics
OPEX analysis and planning
Business case analysis and trending analysis
