We are looking for graduating seniors with 360 degrees of talent and vision to be part of our highly selective one-year management trainee program. 360 Global Management Trainees will be the future generation of EF leaders, and innovative thinkers, who will grow quickly into roles where they’ll use their natural insight and the knowledge gained during their year as a 360, to help EF continue its rapid growth.


Available positions located in Boston, Hong Kong, London, Lucerne, Shanghai & Zurich

The job will be highly demanding, but very rewarding. If you are deterred by jetlag, going above and beyond, or working long hours, this program is not for you.

By the end of the program, you’ll be well along your way in an exciting career at EF. You’ll be equipped with deep, hands-on knowledge of the industry as well as the expansive network of contacts and mentors you’ll have made all over the company, and the world, during your year as a 360.

The Role

It’s as much a mission as it is a job.

You’ll assist an EF President who will act as your mentor, your supervisor, and your friend. You could be asked to produce a flash mob for a viral marketing campaign, analyze sales data, or be a production assistant on a video shoot. No assignment is too big or too small.

You’ll be based in Boston, but you need to be prepared to travel both domestically and internationally.

We guarantee you will be challenged, have real responsibility, work on interesting projects, meet multi-cultural individuals and have fun while working in our global offices. You need to possess strong analytical and communication skills that will help you collaborate with teams and lead a project.

Career Path

Once you become truly 360 (to us that means fully versed in EF’s entrepreneurial operating style), you will be given a position within our organization that best suits your talents and skills.

Positions can range anywhere from managing a team in Boston, to opening a new office in a merging market, to analyzing business data in Zurich.
