The Global Graduate Program (GGP) is the company’s career accelerator for high potential graduates who are early in their careers. During the 24-months talent development program, you will experience a mix of strategic management consulting projects as well as functional rotational stations in the pharmaceutical, life science and performance materials industries.
In the first year, you will be working in the Inhouse Consulting team, where you will have the opportunity to tackle challenging problems under the guidance of experienced consultants and to acquire extensive management and problem-solving skills. Inhouse Consulting projects focus primarily on strategy, growth, as well as operational optimization, and our internal clients are typically senior-level executives within the company. The first year will help you to gain a good knowledge of the company and maximize your exposure to different subjects. You will also participate in targeted professional trainings as well as our coaching & mentoring program to continuously improve your technical expertise and business acumen.
In the second year, you will be working on several individual assignments within our sectors: Healthcare, Life Science, Electronics and Group Functions (e.g. HR, Finance, Innovation, IT). Depending on our business needs and your preference, you’ll get the chance to expand your network and gain in-depth knowledge in the day-to-day operations of different functions, such as marketing, medical, R&D, production, and strategic management. Each assignment will last three to four months, with one international assignment.
Overall, the program allows you to gain the skills and knowledge needed to become an early thought leader in an area, as well as the ability to independently manage complex projects and diverse stakeholders within a matrix organization.
After successful completion, you will move into an exciting role within one of our businesses depending upon your interest and career aspirations, professional development opportunities, and business needs from which you will continue your development as a future leader within the organization.
