Internal Consulting

Who we are:

The Corporate Department Internal Consulting sees itself as an independent consultant department that develops and implements solutions to strategic and operational challenges of the company.

What we do:

With our methodological expertise, we design and successfully complete complex projects with a wide variety of topics. In addition, we bring innovative approaches into the company as part of our project work, such as Design Thinking, Ideation or Agile Methods. Our team consists of former employees of world-leading consulting companies and colleagues who look back on many years of experience at Boehringer Ingelheim and/or other large pharmaceutical companies. Internal Consulting attracts top internal and external talents and sees itself as development platform for future positions in our company.

Who we are looking for:

We are interested in applicants with different educational profiles. In order to meet the project requirements of our internal business partners, we welcome not only natural scientists and business economists, but also medical doctors, psychologists or engineers and many others in our team. Excellent degrees, the capability to learn fast and quickly on-board into new topics as well as a high level of motivation and excitement to closely collaborate with colleagues are important to us. The discipline in which you obtained your Master’s or PhD degree is of secondary importance to us. As a rule, our consultants bring relevant professional experience from consulting or industry with them when they join us.


Depending on your qualifications and relevant work experience, you can join us at different levels. Our diverse projects and the network you are able to build throughout the project work will open up various opportunities for career pathways following your time in Internal Consulting. For example, some of our consultants have moved into various positions in our Human Pharma and Animal Health business units, as well as into central functions such as Finance and Group Functions or the Boehringer Ingelheim Venture Fund.
