Job Description

We're different. We are a Biopharma that keeps it personal.

At Takeda, it's our people, our values and our culture that make us special. We share a sense of vocation and a desire to serve others that pulses through our entire organization. We're fortunate to be grounded in a history that gives us a long term perspective, the confidence to stick to what we believe in, and the humility to know we don't have all the answers.

We combine this outlook with an agility and tenacity to deliver for our patients that has fueled the growth of our business. But what really sets our company apart is something we call Patient Trust Reputation Business. It's the framework that enables us to translate our purpose and values into action. It's how we synchronize the diversity of our perspectives, strengths and expertise. And it’s what keeps our decision making tethered to what really matters.

Job Description:

Are you looking for a patient-focused company that will inspire you and support your career? If so, be empowered to take charge of your future at Takeda. Join us as a Summer Associate for the Commercial Leadership Development Program (CLDP), a highly selective program that develops leaders by incorporating intensive on-the-job training with supplemental development and interaction with our business leaders. In this highly visible development program, you’ll have the opportunity to influence strategic organizational initiatives and work on meaningful assignments that drive our business forward. CLDP Associates use business & management knowledge, problem solving, and relationship management skills during high-impact strategic assignments designed with the purpose of building a sustainable pipeline of high potential Commercial Talent at Takeda. Here, everyone matters and you will be a vital contributor to our inspiring, bold mission.

The goal of the 12- week internship is to provide the most comprehensible pharmaceutical experience possible through a variety of projects under the supervision of a commercial leader at Takeda. At the completion of the internship, the Summer Associate should have a thorough understanding of marketing and sales in the pharmaceutical industry.

  • Each Summer Associate may be assigned a specific project that would be completed by the end of the internship and this would be in addition to routine activities designed to achieve the goal of a complete product management experience. Due to the nature of Takeda's business and culture, Summer Associates are given projects that are challenging and necessary to our continued success as an organization. During the internship, Summer Associates will gain exposure to many of Takeda's business functions.
