What’s it about?

In Novo Nordisk, Global Marketing provides early business input to discovery projects and prepares long-term marketing strategies. We also prepare the markets for product launches and ensure optimal execution of marketing strategies locally. We are responsible for managing our global key opinion leader relationships successfully. Our vision is to be the best marketing operation in the global pharmaceutical industry by being a pivotal contributor to value creation in Novo Nordisk.

During the 2-year journey you will undertake rotations within marketing and sales, both in our Global Marketing headquarters in Denmark and in our international affiliates. You will work as a fully-fledged member of the team and learn competencies relevant to the rotation.

During the Global Marketing graduate programme, you will receive formal training and gain knowledge and invaluable international experience leading to both professional and personal development.

Furthermore, you will work with senior managers and build an international network of world-class colleagues, establishing yourself as one of tomorrow’s key people in marketing at Novo Nordisk.

We’ve designed the programme so that, following its successful completion, you will be equipped with the necessary skills and experience to become an integral part of our company – typically with a permanent position in Denmark or elsewhere in our global organisation.
