Why PepsiCo?

PepsiCo’s MBA internships are designed to make the most of your individuality and talent. The internship is all about learning by doing and experiencing great commercial insights first-hand. Yes you'll get an overview of the business as a whole, but you'll spend most of your time at the heart of your business department. Responsibility will come quickly and you will have the opportunity to drive your own development and strategic thinking, creativity, solutions-focus and leadership skills; ultimately determining your own destiny.

PepsiCo offers the world's largest portfolio of billion-dollar food and beverage brands, including 22 different product lines that generate more than $1 billion in annual retail sales each. Our main businesses – Quaker, Tropicana, Gatorade, Frito-Lay, and Pepsi Cola – also make hundreds of other enjoyable foods and beverages that are respected household names throughout the world.

Commercial Finance: Working on our key market-facing priorities, the team partners with PepsiCo’s Commercial team to find profitable growth across the consumer landscape. Key topics include partnering on major-customer negotiations, launching new products and ventures in the digital space and working with our internal incubator on today’s small ideas that will drive future growth.
