In this section you will find details about applying for the European Finance graduate programme. For details on the Corporate Finance or International Operations Finance graduate programmes please click on the appropriate programme name in the left hand menu. The application process for the European Finance and Corporate Finance graduate programmes is combined. You therefore have the possibility to apply for both programmes in the same application. However, the application process for the International Operations Finance programme is conducted by the local affiliate. No matter which you choose you will obtain a wide range of international opportunities within the finance organisation in Novo Nordisk during your journey.

The graduate programme is a great springboard for launching a life-changing career, offering you a unique chance to use your recently-acquired master's degree to make a difference to patients and begin your career in a an ambitious global pharmaceutical company: Novo Nordisk, the world leader in diabetes care.

Structure of the programme
The European Finance graduate programme is a 2-year journey consisting of three rotations. You will start your programme with a rotation in our European regional headquarters in Zurich, Switzerland. You will then have one rotation in our corporate headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark and finally one rotation in a large sales affiliate in Europe. Each rotation focuses on finance and the related processes.

After successfully completing the programme you will be equipped with the skills to embark on your career at Novo Nordisk with a permanent position – typically in a challenging position within the European Finance organisation or a Commercial Function (sales/marketing). While you could be based in Denmark, your broad network and international experience from the programme will enable global career opportunities.
