Wal-Mart China International Academy The Walmart International Academy was created to attract top, highly talented international students who are eligible to work in the United States during the OPT (Optical Practical Training) portion of their student visa. Due to Walmarts expanding global presence, there is a need for talented, highly trained individuals within Walmarts international corporate offices. This development program includes up to one year of training in the Walmart U.S.-based corporate offices and is designed to train and familiarize associates to Walmarts style of business and operation. After one year of training in a leadership program in the Walmart corporate office, the associate will then transfer back to his/her country of origin to assume a position within that countrys Walmart organization. The one year spent at Walmarts corporate offices will equip the associate with a solid base of functional knowledge and practical skills that will be implemented in his/her new role.

Walmart employs more than 2 million associates, and serves customers and members more than 200 million times per week. All around the world, Walmarts mission is to save people money, so they can live better. We also see opportunities to help people live better beyond the walls of our stores and clubs. Thats why we support cases that are important to our communities, like education, and why we are working hard to do our part in protecting our planet and conserving our natural resources for generations to come. Its the reason we joined with Mercy Corps and USAID to help small farmers in Guatemala, and its also the reason you see Fair Trade Coffee on the shelves at Sams Club. And why every one of our careers aims to innovate locally, globally, ethically, sustainably and with everything possible to save people money and help them live better. By working closely with our communities and suppliers, we can reach beyond just our customers to help improve the lives of people around the globe.
