Business development managers: aligning companies strategically
Market analysis, the development of existing business areas and the opening up of new markets make the job as a Business Development Manager:in demanding, but also exciting. In view of increasing international competition, BDM is in demand in many industries as a business area for the future positioning and further development of organisations.
The aim is to keep an eye on the profitability of the company and to react to rapid economic change. Depending on the size of the company, BDMs work directly with the management. The balancing act between customer needs, competition, future trends and market development therefore makes your job as a Business Development Manager unique and varied.
Which opportunities do business development managers have on the labour market?
Business Development Managers can work in almost all industries, but are particularly in demand where there is a high demand for innovation, i.e. in industries from the natural sciences and technology sector. BDMs have particularly good career prospects in management in the telecommunications and IT sectors, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, but also in mechanical engineering and related areas.
