Solar Leadership Program

SunEdison launched the Solar Leadership Program (SLP) in 2012 to develop management talent for the company and prepare associates for future leadership roles at SunEdison. The SLP seeks graduate students in programs with an emphasis on broad commercial skills sets such as MBA and similar advanced degree programs with backgrounds in key functions such as engineering, operations, and finance.

The program emphasizes broad training across different functions and business units within the company, as well as mentorship and training. SLP Associates enjoy support from senior management and extensive exposure to SunEdison executives.

Full-time Associates complete four 6-month rotations in different business units, followed by placement into a management role in a functional area based on the Associate’s interests and SunEdison’s needs. Initial rotations are designed to solidify foundational skills such as project finance, marketing and operations. Later rotations allow Associates to work in additional functions such as business development, sales, project M&A, government affairs, design and engineering, supply chain, and commercial management across utility, distributed generation and residential business units.
