Global career journey
The Novo Nordisk Graduate Programme is a 2-year journey that will take you through a minimum of three job rotations, with at least one based in our corporate headquarters in Denmark and another in one of our global affiliates.

“I feel that the graduate programme is like a climbing wall. It will always be challenging, but it is up to you just how challenging you make it for yourself. You can choose how difficult the path is that you follow and therefore how big the personal reward is. I like this freedom and the trust that the company has in you to make your own personal choice.”
