Novo Nordisk operates in a highly competitive, complex and regulated environment. One of our objectives is to ensure an effective R&D pipeline, timely product flow from production sites to the markets, the progress of small and large development and improvement projects, the sharing of knowledge, and improved ways of operating across departments in a global environment. All these activities need to be managed and optimised in line with the demands of the market and the complex regulations of the authorities.

The Business Processes Graduate Programme aims at equipping you with a thorough understanding of this network of activities, both within and outside Novo Nordisk, and hence covers major business processes in the global pharmaceutical industry. Expect to get hands-on experience with specific ongoing cross-functional projects in our organisation, encompassing both analytical and operational tasks. Your tasks will have an impact on the organisation, and you are expected to deliver results from the start.

As a Business Process Graduate you are considered as the future of Novo Nordisk – and we will invest heavily in making sure you are equipped to make a difference. By rotation between 3 different parts of the organisation, including one of our more than 80 affiliates abroad, you will obtain comprehensive knowledge of different business areas and segments.

Examples of recent Business Processes Graduate activities include forecasting the development of diabetes and analysing the implications, support of in-licensing opportunities, developing strategies for pricing of new drug classes, rolling out SAP in affiliates, implementing a model on valuation of development project portfolio, long-term forecasting on production capacity, improving marketing efforts in developing markets, supply chain improvements and Lean manufacturing improvements.


To join the Business Processes programme, you’ll need a Master’s degree in economics, international business, marketing or a related field. We’re looking for strong individuals who are results-oriented, ambitious and able to adapt to change. You’ll need to be able to work as part of a team – and enjoy learning new things in a fast-paced environment.
