MDP members join a wide variety of teams such as: product marketing, marketing analytics and online marketing.

Recent MDP roles The flexibility of the MDP allows participants the freedom to shape and customize their experience. Marketing Development Program roles range across the marketing spectrum. Recent MDP participants have fulfilled roles including: •

Post-MDP roles The MDP serves as an acceleration program for Dell’s newly acquired MBA marketers. MDP members transition out of the program and either choose to stay in their current roles, or transition into a new role after 9-12 months. Program management aids members in identifying new opportunities within Dell. MDP participants exiting the program either move into a highimpact traditional marketing role or are eligible to apply for the Marketing Rotation Program (MRP). Both traditional marketing roles and the MRP are great options for continued career development. The pathway chosen depends on an individual’s career goals and the position he or she would like to pursue. Whichever direction you take your career, the Marketing Talent & Capabilities Team and MDP Program Managers help guide you through the transition.

“MDP participants are some of the most valuable leaders on my team. They tend to bring a “point me in the right direction and let me go” type of attitude. Because of that I typically give them high visibility, high impact projects.” Carolyn Loudenslager Dell Marketing Director
