Structure of our Graduate Program
During the Discovery Week, you will gather with your peers for a special onboarding in Zurich, Switzerland to get an overview of our business units, meet members of our Executive Board and your mentor, with whom you will regularly exchange views, thoughts, and ideas. Your mentor will guide and support you throughout the Graduate Program. For each of the three assignment you will have a placement advisor who also will be there for you.
You spend your first six months in your home country in a business unit or corporate function department that matches your chosen specialization. During that time, you attend initial training courses at our SIX Academy. You are entitled to a total of 15 training days during your time with us.
After six months of the program, you will have learned quite a lot about SIX and BME. Now it’s time to learn even more. You will go to Switzerland for three months to broaden your knowledge. Wherever your deployment takes you, this rotation enables you to gain further experience and additional insights into SIX.
When the last three months of the Graduate Program get underway, for you this means completing training courses, wrapping up business tasks, and extensively discussing the feedback on your personal development. Then, for the finale, it’s time to celebrate your fascinating 12-month journey with SIX and BME.
