At Roche, we grow as a company as our people develop their skills and talents. That’s why we seek out professionals like you and then help cultivate your expertise in areas critical to our mutual success. This includes giving you a deeper view of your own discipline as well as an opportunity to exchange knowledge with those in related fields. Horizons is one such program.
A multi-faceted six-month program, Horizons is designed for executives who already have two to seven years' career experience under their belts. Developed in concert a renowned Business School, the program delivers true learning in action: Combining classroom instruction and teamwork with fellow participants, Horizons challenges you to think differently, going beyond your immediate field and work environment and seeing yourself as a leader who helps drive innovation throughout the business.
You’ll find yourself side by side with a diverse group of accomplished professionals. Together, you’ll share knowledge across disciplines, cultures and geographies. You’ll read and research, and use your new understandings to challenge traditional approaches to innovation management and strategy. By participating in innovation experiments, you’ll learn how to create and motivate high performance teams. Over a six-month period, you’ll study and work in a range of environments including London and Switzerland, and participate in a variety of exercises that encompass preparation, execution and vital feedback. Afterwards, you’ll be invited to be mentored by a senior manager
Rooted in actual business practice while advancing an international perspective on identifying and solving challenges, Horizons is an unparalleled chance to explore your own capacity for unconventional thinking, leadership and results. You’ll take your new insights with you when you return to your job, advancing not only your own career potential, but enriching the entire Roche culture.
