Bring your ideas to life

to a real business challenge Novo Nordisk is facing.
Get a snapshot of what
Innovation in Action is from last year’s case competition:
This year’s case: Motivating patients through innovation
Going beyond the product is a must if we want to make sure that people with type 2 diabetes and obesity get the best possible experience with their medical treatments. Research shows that people with type 2 diabetes and obesity tend to drop out of their treatment plans during the first year due to a variety of behavioral and psychosocial reasons. We see how patient support programmes and self-educational initiatives drive motivation and better treatment adherence. Help us bridge the gap by identifying great innovative solutions, either digital or non-digital, that can motivate people with type 2 diabetes or obesity to stay on their treatment and succeed with their disease management.
The case competition is a
1-day intensive development process where students will be placed in
groups of 5 - 7 people. The groups will be created across different
educational backgrounds and be challenged to work together, to find
an innovative solution to a real and relevant business challenge for
Novo Nordisk. Ultimately the groups will present their best solution
to a jury of Novo Nordisk employees.
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!”
