Engineering and Management Development Program

The Engineering and Management Development Program (EMDP) is a challenging and rewarding full-time opportunity designed to develop high-potential candidates for key roles. Based in our corporate headquarters in Batesville, Indiana, this two year program consists of four month cross-functional rotations, along with training tailored to your interests and the company’s needs.

“Coming out of college, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. The EMDP allowed me to get a taste of several different jobs in engineering and business. Each job had its own lessons and challenges that helped in my career development. Upon completion of the program, I knew what job I wanted and the career path I wanted to take.”

“My career started over a decade ago, but learning from the Engineering and Management Development Program continues to be the foundation of my success. This program provided a deep understanding of each business function and allowed immediate opportunities to directly impact our business performance. The investment Batesville makes in the Engineering and Management Development Program participants truly shows a commitment to hiring and retaining the best and brightest associates.”

Brandon Wiedeman, Director, Technology

“The Engineering and Management Development Program gave me an opportunity to work in many different areas of the company right out of college. This early exposure to the entire business has been invaluable. In two years, I gained experience that I may not have gotten otherwise in my entire career.”
