what you'll do


The FMBADP is a two-year program, consisting of four six-month rotational assignments designed to provide a wide-breadth of exposure across the business. Exciting international assignments are also available during the two-year program. There is no pre-established sequence of assignments. Instead, your path will be designed to broaden your skills and interests as well as reflect Chevron’s business needs and your development areas. Your Program Manager – a FMBADP alum – will guide you through these two years on the program. Upon completing the program, members roll-off into a variety of different finance roles across the company.

Assignments could be in the following business areas:

  • Corporate Comptroller’s

  • Downstream & Chemicals
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Investor Relations
  • Corporate Strategic Planning


The FMBADP Summer Internship is an introduction and a key entry point to our two-year rotational program and is structured to allow interns to experience what the full-time program has to offer. The internship will be spent in one assignment over 10-12 weeks at our corporate headquarters in San Ramon, CA. Throughout the summer, interns will have the opportunity to attend training, social events, and networking opportunities with program members, alumni, and senior Chevron leaders including our CEO and CFO.
