GOglobal@EMD - Global Graduate Program is a 24 month fixed-term program for graduates with a dual academic background in natural/life science and business/economics.
As a participant, you are part of EMD Inhouse Consulting, the internal consultancy of the EMD Group. Your job is supporting our headquarters as well as subsidiaries in the development and implementation of strategic management as well as operational projects. We offer you training on-the-job in the form of project-based assignments as well as advanced training for further qualifications.
EMD’s Global Graduate Program comprises two stages:
Part 1 – Your launch pad: EMD Inhouse Consulting
Become part of our Inhouse Consulting team: At stage one, you gain relevant business experience by supporting worldwide consulting projects for the entire EMD Group. The main focus is on developing your project management and consulting skills, acquiring analytical toolkits and starting a network within the EMD Group. At the beginning of the program, you will be working in EMD’s Inhouse Consulting department at our headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany, for up to 6 months, afterwards in the Boston area, USA
Part 2 – Your accelerator: EMD’s line organization
Tackle your personal challenge: At stage two, you work on individual assignments of three to four months, either in dedicated projects or our daily business in Pharmaceuticals, Chemicals and EMD Group Functions. As working cross-culturally is an integral part of us, you can also look forward to an assignment abroad in one of our worldwide subsidiaries.
The main focus at this stage is on gaining business experience and on strengthening your global network. We want you perfectly prepared for starting your career at EMD!
The basic principle and ultimate goal of the Global Graduate Program is to realize your full potential through project-based assignments. From the very beginning, you will be part of EMD’s Inhouse Consulting team – and thus a broad worldwide network with a direct connection to senior management.
On your way through our Global Graduate Program, you benefit from training on-the-job, off-the-job development seminars and advanced training units by internal as well as external professionals. Additionally, a personal mentor from senior business management can be chosen to support your professional progress and your transition to a permanent position within the EMD Group.
