The Region Europe Pharma Management Graduate Programme aims at developing high-class young management professionals with thorough pharmaceutical business knowledge and a strong organizational network.

The programme consists of an intensive 2-year cross-organizational sales and marketing training period, as well as leadership and team work skills development. Hands-on field experience is offered, complemented by further extensive training. The graduate takes part in and ideally becomes responsible for certain elements of departments’ daily projects.

European experience is enhanced through three rotations
The first 6 months of the programme will take the graduate to the regional office in Zurich, Switzerland, working as a Business Analyst.

After this period the graduate will do a rotation of 12 months working as a sales representative to experience sales force dynamics and to gain understanding of customer base which is crucial for further career development.

Finally a third 6-month rotation as a business analyst takes place in another European country in a sales or marketing department or in Headquarters in Denmark.
