    Finance Rotational Development Program

    As an Associate in McKesson’s Finance Rotational Development Program (FRDP), I am able to utilize the financial skills I developed in my MBA program to further McKesson’s mission of contributing to the better health of our customers. My MBA skills paired with the rotation opportunities of the FRDP have set me up to help our customers achieve better health now and to continue to do so in the future in my post-program role at McKesson.

    Director of Services

    I have supported the efforts and accomplishments of our University Relations Team for more that 10+ years and have no inclination or reason to stop. I remain utterly convinced that our university program provides McKesson with not just the best and the brightest, but individuals who can, and often do, create the future of this company. And if the people we hire are the ones who will shape that future, little else can be more important.
