  2. Part-time (parallel program) - Students choosing this schedule typically work 15 to 20 hours per week while attending classes.
  3. Internships - This program enables current college students to gain meaningful work experience, while exploring career opportunities at Meritor. Interns can work full-time or part-time during the summer months

 Emerging Leader Development Program


Meritor’s Emerging Leader Development Program (ELDP) is a two- to three-year, on-the-job development experience for top-notch, ambitious college graduates. The program provides high-potential candidates with the opportunity to work on challenging assignments and interface with executive leadership. We are looking for recent graduates with a BA, BS, BSME, BBA or MBA in Finance, Accounting, Supply Chain, Mechanical Engineering, Industrial and Operations Engineering or Lean Manufacturing.

Program Model

At Meritor, we take a balanced approach to developing our future leaders. The ELDP provides a powerful program that enables employees to quickly make an impact at Meritor while at the same time develop the attributes of a successful leader. The program combines three proven development strategies:

  1. Experience Strategy

    • Multiple rotational assignments based on discipline
    • Project-based learning
    • Significant exposure to senior leaders
  2. Relationship Strategy
    • Leadership development
    • Mentoring and peer interaction
    • Manager feedback
  3. Education Strategy
    • Opportunities for advanced education or projects
    • Professional certifications
    • Business skill courses

Experience Strategy

ELDP employees gain valuable on-the-job experience through 3 one-year rotations within the Finance, Engineering, Human Resources and Purchasing organizations. Each successive rotation presents progressively more challenging assignments and grants greater responsibilities, while maintaining exposure to a broad range of business and operational practices and experiences. Additionally, due to the substantive nature of the various projects, employees will interact regularly with upper management. Assignments may take participants through a range of disciplines.

Relationship Strategy

Each ELDP employee is assigned a formal mentor when they enter the program. Throughout the program, the experiences and guidance of the mentor will help the employee develop insight, make observations and perform thoughtful analyses about the steps needed to develop into a successful leader.

In addition to the formal mentoring process, ELDP employees interact with leaders and peers through various leadership development, peer interaction and coaching exercises during monthly ELDP Vision meetings. Meetings are held at our Troy campus and provide a forum for associates to practice and hone the “softer” skills of leadership.

Education Strategy

ELDP employees are encouraged to use the many tools and resources available to maintain and enhance their skills, such as:

  • Executive seminars
  • Business skills courses
  • Opportunities to pursue additional classroom learning
  • Support for the pursuit of professional certifications


We are looking for individuals who:

  • Have high-level management aspirations
  • Are willing to be actively involved in their career development
  • Have the ability to relocate domestically and internationally
  • Are able to work in a multicultural setting

Program requirements Include:

  • Bachelor’s and/or master’s degree
  • Previous internship and/or full-time work experience
  • Grade point average of 3.0 or above (on a 4.0 scale)
  • Willingness to relocate

Meritor actively recruits BA, BS, BSME, BBA or MBA graduates and interns many universities globally. Please apply to our program through our On-Line Application section. We will be at your school year round for on-campus interviews.
