The Business IT Graduate programme is anchored in IT & Corporate Development which is the centre of global IT coordination in Novo Nordisk. We provide global IT governance, project management of 40 international projects and manage all critical, global IT systems. Our 200+ people are closely engaged with all Novo Nordisk business areas in Denmark as well as internationally.

For the past couple of years, IT&CD has implemented extensive change initiatives, aiming at optimising our IT management through implementation of shared project and system management methodologies.

As a Business IT Graduate you will undertake three rotations of eight months each within IT Governance, Project Execution and IT System Management, one of these outside Denmark, while following an individual development plan.

Our aim is to develop key people with extensive knowledge of our IT management processes who will help us reach our ambitious goals for the future.

Examples of the challenges taken on by current Business IT Graduates are project portfolio reviews, project management, IT risk management, global IT sourcing, strategic vendor management, IT strategy preparation and organisational change management.


To join the Business IT programme, you’ll need to have successfully completed a degree in a relevant field, such as IT, economics, or information studies. We’re looking for people who are performance-oriented, outgoing and willing to learn from others. You should be able to work as part of a team – but also to work independently and be prepared to take ownership over your own projects.
