This Ascend program has been crafted as an intense rotation-based program that will provide all participants with well-rounded knowledge of JBS's business and a fast-track opportunity for advancement. They are committed to taking high caliber individuals to the height of their potential, thus building a proven and knowledgeable bench for future JBS leadership.

The Ascend Program is focused on giving participants the skills they need to read complex situations, set innovative strategies, and execute those strategies with integrity and effectiveness. Participants rotate through several departments and get exposure to many different aspects of the business.

In addition to the Ascend rotation, ALTs participate in coursework intended to deepen their understanding of the business, broaden their appreciation of various leadership styles, and enable them to flex new leadership skills.
