Through the Bayer graduate program, students and recent graduates can build on their academic success and gain a head start in their professional journey and will be a part of a diverse talent pool. 

Reality is that the second year of study marks two main things in the life of an undergraduate university student – the first is celebrating the half-way mark of study and the second is a wakeup call to begin searching for ways of being employable. 
The pressure of being employed often has push factors ranging from repaying student loans, building a valuable and solid career, taking care of siblings back at home, and being an independent young adult.

Although leaving university is a lifechanging milestone, it however comes with fears of entering the workplace and being a right fit while at it. The truth is that what is learnt at school is only foundational phase and the real workplace work often is learnt by doing the actual job.


“With all these pressures in mind, Bayer understands what’s at stake and we take pride in our commitment to grow and develop young talents. Through this graduate program - high potential employees who possess the knowledge, drive, and enthusiasm are identified to permanently become part of the Bayer team”
Merab Olang, Head of Human Resources at Bayer South East Africa
