About the program

The Business Analyst program lasts 18 months and is divided into three periods with different contents. At the same time, the program is flexible and gives the opportunity for individual adjustment.
This period is spent at headquarter in Oslo. Early in this period you will be challenged with own responsibility areas, as well as being introduced to two periods at smelting plants. The tasks will mainly consist of economic follow-up, analysis, and development of production departments.
During the first period of the Business Analyst program you will develop contact with several key personnel at headquarter via various projects, social activities and courses.
Subsequent to 6 months at headquarter you will be placed at one of Elkem’s production departments for a 6 month period. During this period you will receive valuable experience through fixed responsibilities and projects. Local employer will ensure follow-up during your second period.
