During your 10-week MBA SLDP IT internship at Gallo, you’ll be responsible for a project with similar responsibilities to those of our full-time employees. These projects will give you exposure to our functional areas and business, while also enabling you to apply your knowledge and expertise to real issues and problems facing the company.  Our interns work on high-impact and highly-visible IT focused assignments that support and benefit one of many of our company’s areas, including E-Commerce and Direct-to-Consumer technology, Sales & Marketing, Systems, Agricultural Management tools, Winemaking, and Corporate Systems such as Finance & HR.


Our technology business consultants are at the center of the business – learning about their unique challenges and partnering to understand & anticipate their needs and translate those needs to technology-based solutions.

This flexible program will allow you to develop a robust expertise through functionally specific rotations in Information Technology, Finance, or Supply Chain. Your journey through this program is just the beginning. Through your rotations, you’ll gain an understanding of what areas are a match for your skills and interests. Additionally, employees may elect to do a rotation that allows for cross functional experience in a different area based on individual interests and skill sets. We have identified some possible 12 to 24 month rotations within the areas below, but new opportunities are always emerging.  MBA SLDP participants graduate into management roles, and MBA SLDP alumni are leading groups across the company and across the globe.

Travel to the east, and you could be skiing the Sierra Nevada or backpacking at Yosemite National Park. There’s always something to do.  For those that choose to live outside the Central Valley, Gallo offers a free shuttle from the East Bay (Oakland and Livermore), so you can sit back and enjoy your commute.
