Choose a sustainable career 

Currently, we offer two postgraduate programs.  

#1 The Danfoss Global Postgraduate Program is your gateway to global career opportunities – both during and after the program. Here, you'll experience the “core” of our business by immersing yourself in impactful business projects that provide invaluable professional experience across multiple business areas and foster powerful personal growth. The cross-functional capabilities you develop will enable you to develop synergies across our organization. 

#2 The Danfoss Finance Postgraduate Program is for you if you’d rather have a more focused development experience within finance topics.  Here, you’ll experience all areas of the Danfoss Finance Model with hands-on learnings within segments, divisions/business units, legal entities, and factories. Your first-hand understanding of our financial engine room basics will give you a unique understanding of our business and business decisions from a finance angle.

Your journey

This two-year program is your ticket to playing a pivotal role in three distinct projects, each lasting eight months. Your journey begins at our headquarters with your first project, ready and waiting from day one. Subsequent projects are chosen in collaboration with your mentor, aligning with your profile and personal learning objectives.  

Projects could be within areas such as emerging market development, supply chain optimization, manufacturing excellence, electrification, digitalization (just to name a few). In every project, you'll receive regular coaching and guidance from the project owner.

As a global Postgraduate, you'll have the flexibility to work from selected Danfoss sites.

A Personal Mentor

You'll be paired with a personal mentor from Danfoss senior management, guiding your professional and personal development throughout the program.

Development Hubs 

Your Danfoss journey begins with a one-week onboarding boot camp, introducing you to the company, workshops, team-building, and new friends. An international development experience awaits you between rotations along with unique learning opportunities.

Postgraduate Buddy

Join the postgraduate community and be paired with a fellow postgraduate who is one year ahead of you. Your buddy will provide invaluable assistance with Danfoss knowledge, networking, practical insights, and their program experience.
