KMD Graduate Program 2022
The KMD Graduate Program is a customized and structured program for professional development and learning. The graduate program is here to develop and grow some of KMD’s future talented specialists and leaders by providing a framework for accelerated career development.
”… As a graduate you get the chance to take part in the processes where big decisions are being made, and you get responsibility – because people trust you.” – Sales Graduate, Malte Cats-Abildgaard, 2020.
As a graduate in KMD, you hold a business-critical position throughout the 18-month-long program. You are exposed to real life IT and business problems, and you work hands-on to create solutions, solve issues and collaborate with a variety of people, both externally and internally.
The KMD Graduate Program 2022 is divided into two tracks: Business Development and IT Consulting & Development. If you are curious about the IT Consulting & Development track, you can read more about it here.
The Business Development track
In the Business Development track, you will work in either Product Management or Sales, fulfilling a key role in ensuring that KMD is able to do what we do best – digitizing public and private businesses. KMD and our subsidiaries deliver over 400 IT products to our customers, and depending on what role you will fill, your job will either be to ensure that our products solve our current customers’ business-critical needs, to identify new business opportunities or to engage new customers.
The track consists of different roles which all work to maintain and secure KMD as a leading supplier of business-critical IT solutions. The roles may include:
- Business Consultant
- Client Manager
- Product Manager
- Sales Specialist
Whether you are an ambitious sales specialist focused on creating and maintaining customer relations, a business analyst with a strategic mindset or a product manager eager to use your skills and experience to drive and grow the business – this track is for you.
