Structure of the SIX Graduate Program

Please note that we continually refine the program and adapt it to our graduates’ needs. This means that individual program procedures may change.

1. Discover SIX

During the Discovery Days, you will gather with your peers for a special onboarding 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 four assignment you will have a placement advisor who also will be there for you.

2. Get Fully Immersed

You spend your first months in a business unit or corporate function department. 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.

3. Explore New Territories

You will spend three times 5 months in your home country and three months at one of our locations abroad. Wherever your deployment takes you, every rotation enables you to gain further experience and additional insights into SIX.

4. Learn Even More

After several months of the program, you will have learned quite a lot about SIX. Now it’s time to learn even more: You go abroad for three months Once you returned from your foreign deployment, we welcome you for another five months back in your home country.
