The A&F Leadership Development Internships provide a fast-paced on-the-job learning environment for top university students. During the 10 week program, interns will gain exposure to the multi-billion dollar retail industry through Merchandising, Inventory Management, Finance or IT. Interns will be placed in specific areas where they will work with cross-functional teams to fully maximize profitability for our high quality brands. After two weeks of intensive training, interns will quickly take on significant responsibilities, gain exposure to senior management and have the opportunity to make an impact on our business. These highly competitive internships are unique for their entrepreneurial structure and are designed to prepare students for the full-time Leadership Development Programs.
