Business projects available for individuals or groups
Are you about to write your final master thesis and do you want to work with people from all around the world? Join Coloplast’s Master Thesis Programme, and make the most of your master’s degree
A thesis based on real-life business cases

Every year we open our doors to a group of graduates and give them the opportunity to write a thesis based on real business cases. You will be able to combine your theory with current business challenges and meet highly dedicated professionals within your area of study. Several of our previous Master Thesis Programme participants joined Coloplast permanently upon their graduation. Please read about the Master Thesis programme here or at Coloplast.com/career. Here you will also find a short description of the exciting projects we offer this year.

We offer
We strive to hire the best so expect to work hard to get a chance to join us. In turn, we promise to help you by providing sponsors as well as senior managers that will challenge your work and assumptions along the way. As part of the programme, we will provide you with:

• A real-life business case
• Full access to internal data
• An internal sponsor, who will help you navigate our organisation
• The opportunity to present and get feedback from senior Coloplast business leaders via Challenger Board sessions throughout the programme
• Office space in our headquarters in Humlebæk, Denmark along with a laptop and phone • Reimbursed business travel expenses (if applicable)

We expect
At Coloplast, we believe curiosity is the key to success and innovation. Therefore, when selecting our participants, we will look for candidates who not only have an international outlook and outstanding academic achievement, but who are curious, proactive and ambitious. Strong analytical and strategical skills, as well as communication and stakeholder management, are also important. Depending on your research project, it may make sense for you to travel to conduct interviews with, for example, sales people, healthcare professionals, or even consumers or competitors. So a high level of maturity, good communication skills, and the ability to interact professionally with people in English is a huge plus. You will be representing Coloplast in your interactions with others – and with that trust comes responsibility. If that excites you, and you like to both be challenged yourself but also use your knowledge to challenge others, then apply now.

Deadline for applying is 1 October 2018
