Our team: a healthy mix

Everyone who works for Bayer Business Consulting is part of an exceptionally well-trained, highly motivated and highly flexible team of people with a wide range of complementary skills and experiences. Our success is based on a healthy mix of people: around 20 different cultures and nationalities, about 50 percent of staff at Business Consulting is female; our consultants come from a wide range of academic backgrounds and have experience in many different areas of consulting and industry.


Whilst working in a challenging and diverse environment, the Business Consulting team also makes sure that social, fun and sports events are regularly organized. Business Consulting does not only live an “open office” but also  open feedback culture and has a great team spirit. The highlight is the so called “Camp” that is held twice a year and unites the entire global Business Consulting team in Germany.


In addition there are many employees who are active together in their leisure time. Thus, a large team of Business Consulting has participated in the Cologne Business Run, while the Business Consulting soccer team participated in various football tournaments.

Live diversity

At Business Consulting different characters, skills and cultures meet twice a year for a Business Consulting-Camp.

From a bench based science to real life science

Testimonial: Tobias Ludwig on the Bayer Career Blog


    How do you make the transition from an assistant physician for neuropathology to a business consultant at Bayer – and why? Vincent Ruland deals with how to identify the research projects that provide the greatest benefit for patients, among other matters. In his contribution to the Bayer Career Blog, he explains what motivated him.


Testimonial: Tobias Ludwig on the Bayer Career Blog


    What Tobias finds particularly fascinating about consulting at Bayer is the diversity that comes from being involved in new projects all over the company worldwide. Diversity is an important issue to Tobias in many ways; He is not only commited to the equality of homosexual, bisexual and transsexual employees at Bayer. He also took the opportunity to gather experience on a social project where he spent three months working in a children’s home in Bolivia. Read more in his contribution to the Bayer careers blog

Background of our consultants



The consultants employed by Business Consulting come from a wide range of backgrounds. Some gained industry experience at Bayer or other companies before moving into consulting. Others worked as consultants at external or internal management consultancies or started their career in science before joining Business Consulting.


Many of our consultants have a degree in business studies, but the team also includes scientists, engineers, psychologists and people from a wide range of other disciplines. This broad spectrum of expertise is leveraged in the projects we undertake for the Bayer Group.
