Management Development

“Today Bertelsmann is more than ever a magnet for ambitious up-and-coming top management recruits, because Bertelsmann has consistently promoted the entrepreneurial responsibility of staff – and not just since the venture-capital and start-up boom. As a result, it has become the most internationalized media enterprise."
Management Development has been established at Bertelsmann to help managers learn and improve their skills to benefit themselves and the organization as a whole.

Our senior management has and will always be committed to developing and retaining our talent. Our Corporate Management Development department will help to guide you through the process of “Creating Your Own Career” by giving advice, providing awareness of opportunities, creating developmental or mentoring programs and being an ad-hoc resource to connect all the dots within our organization.

From the application process onward, we will set aside the time to get to know you. You are, after all, someone who has achieved a lot and has expertise in diverse areas. We respect and encourage your enthusiasm for the printed word, music, and new media, and we will work to find the right place for you at Bertelsmann.

At Bertelsmann, Management Development is something we take very seriously and proactively, ensuring long-term sustainability and success in our organization and our people.
