Innovation in action case competition

Still studying but eager to kickstart your career? Join Novo Nordisk’s case competition and use it as a shortcut to a life-changing career. 

Show your talent and bring your ideas to life at Novo Nordisk’s annual case competition ‘Innovation in Action’. It is a 1-day workshop for Master’s students from all academic backgrounds. In small groups of students with a variety of backgrounds, you and your group will work together to find an innovative solution to a real business challenge Novo Nordisk is facing. Ultimately, you will present your idea to a jury panel of senior managers and specialists from Novo Nordisk, a patient and an academic professor.


Ready to show your talent?

Novo Nordisk hosts this case competition to engage with the best students. We use it is as a possible recruitment platform and one of the aims is to introduce participating students to a possible career in Novo Nordisk. It could be a student job, an internship, the Graduate Programme or another entry level position! The winning team will be offered “A day with Novo Nordisk” and a screening interview with assessment feedback. This is a great way to build relations with employees at Novo Nordisk and get a feeling about “How it’s really like to have a life-changing career!”
