QUESTIONS

The application to AB InBev’s Global MBA Internship opens in the Fall. To find the application, scroll down and select the zone and country you're interested in applying.  

No, you will be placed in a specific function for both your internship and full-time position. However, AB InBev believes that people should grow at the pace of their talent and many GMBAs have moved around functions at AB InBev throughout their career.  

When it comes to our Global MBA Program, the “Global” part refers to you. Upon joining this program, you’ll have the opportunity to build a network of people from around the globe. We want you to learn the beer business in your home country in order to form a strong foundation before going out into the world. Global relocation moves become available once you’ve proven your ability to drive results with a team of your own. 

While the Global MBA internship is the best way to get a full-time offer, we are always looking for top talent! We do not have a formal Global MBA full-time application process, but we’d love to see what you bring to the table. If you were not able to apply for an internship with us, but you’re still interested in our Global MBA full-time program, reach out to one of your AB InBev campus recruiters. We’d be happy to check out your resume and learn more about why you’d be a great fit for our Global MBA Program! 

The Global MBA Internship program lasts for 10 to 12 weeks. The full-time Global MBA Program lasts for a year: we start in July with a Global Induction, Learning & Development experiences throughout the year, a Deep Dive into one of our zone’s business in March – April of the following year, and a Capstone week in July. 

The decision to sponsor visas is determined by the recruitment team in each region. We do require previous work authorization in most countries we operate in (exception: Middle Americas and Europe). 

Yes, as long as you are legally authorized to work in the locations you apply for. 

It is the final part of the interview process, where we invite candidates to visit us at one of our offices. The day will include a group case interview with other candidates that will be judged by senior leadership, as well as an office tour and current Global MBA question and answer panel.  

Our focus is mainly on 2-year MBA programs, but we may be open to one-year MBA programs on a case-by-case basis, if the school calendar aligns with our Global MBA program calendar. 

Your internship location will depend on the zone and function you apply to. Your full-time placement usually matches the zone and function of your internship. For more details, please ask your local recruiting team. 

There are many different functional options for your Global MBA Internship including the following:

  • Marketing
  • Sales
  • Finance
  • Procurement & Sustainability
  • Supply & Logistics
  • People (HR)
  • Solutions (Technology)
  • Legal & Corporate Affairs
  • ZX Ventures (global growth and innovation group within AB InBev)  

ZX Ventures is a global growth and innovation group within AB InBev. Launched in 2015, its mandate is to empower entrepreneurs to unlock exponential growth. ZX funds and nurtures new ventures to address emerging consumer needs. The investments made by ZX Ventures are significant drivers of growth for our core business; both in the beverage space, but also in areas like ecommerce, biotech, and socialization.
