Day in the life
Having a global view of the business is the best foundation for success.
Success is measured by how you adapt to change.
A typical day is one that’s full of twists and turns.
I chose the Global Management Trainee Program because it’s one of the best traineeships in Europe. I wasn’t sure where I wanted to begin my career, and this program covered almost everything, from sales to logistics to supply chain.
We began the program with a lot of training, learning and shadowing – where we observed different roles in different parts of the business. Then we had to utilize this knowledge to complete various projects, such as sales assignments where we had to bring in new customers, and supply chain tasks that required us to improve existing processes. Every day was different; there was never a typical day in the program!
It gave me a comprehensive overview of the business and it helped me pinpoint where I wanted to take my career. Without it, I would have never had the opportunity to experience so many different areas of AB InBev and to get to know the top managers at such an early stage, and I believe that has given me a great foundation for a successful career.
