Responsibilities from the first day

The Sales and Marketing Graduate Program combines the advantages of a direct start in the real working world with an intensive learning program. Over two years, you will discover our business model and clients in detail, and you will take on numerous responsibilities starting from day one. Thus, we prepare you optimally for a management position. You will be coached by senior management and challenged to bring out the best in yourself.

Our work environment is fast paced and challenging. For an optimal start in the program we will coach you on a personal level and your superiors will closely monitor your journey through the program. A collaboration with another department on a strategic project will broaden your professional horizon. In addition, we will train you on a professional and personal level and in managing your career. All these advantages will not only bring you enriching experiences and proven know-how, but also a qualification that represents an undeniable asset for the rest of your career.
