The Experience

Program Details

Cohorts begin in fall (odd years) and summer (even years).

You are assured that a major corporation is placing stock in you when they select you for training, and you have guaranteed employment options for the future.

How To Get Started

The Ford ASSET program is a limited-entry program. This means you must meet certain criteria before you can apply. The program admits 24 students every fall term on odd numbered years and even numbered years in the summer term.
