Global Marketing provides early business input to discovery projects and prepares long-term marketing strategies.

During the 2-year programme you will undertake three challenging and exciting rotations of 8-months duration within marketing and sales, both in our corporate headquarters in Denmark and in our global affiliates. You will gain experience working as a fully-fledged member of the teams and receive leadership and team work training and development.

During the first rotation in our headquarters in Denmark, you will experience hands-on learning and a solid introduction to corporate life and the entire pharmaceutical life life-cycle of a brand. On your second rotation, which can be anywhere in the world, you will gain local market insights and high responsibility. On your third rotation, you will experience the final link in the pharmaceutical value-chain, as you work with sales in an affiliate market and have responsibility for your own customer and sales targets.
