Munich. The BMW Group’s Expert Career offers highly-qualified employees an attractive development alternative without management responsibility. The international rollout will begin in early November in 40 countries. In parallel with the classic management track, employees following the Expert Career will focus on technical, project or corporate topics without disciplinary responsibility.

“The Expert Career offers a career path that is equal to the classic management track, with attractive development opportunities for our employees,” explains Ilka Horstmeier, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, responsible for Human Resources. “In this way, we are securing our strong position as an attractive employer.”

Young talents in future areas of activity, such as automated driving and connectivity, in particular, are less interested these days in the classic management track. At the same time, future technologies require a high level of expertise and new forms of collaboration. The Expert Career has been tailored to these requirements. This broader approach to career development will make it easier for the company to recruit and develop talented technical, project and corporate experts, and expand their key future competences for the BMW Group on a selective basis.


The Expert Career will be offered across all areas of the company and is not restricted to certain divisions or qualifications. With two career paths, employees can be optimally deployed according to their strengths. Suitable employees can switch between the classic management track and the Expert Career at any time; both development paths are equal and open to one another. This enables targeted, flexible employee development, in accordance with the employee’s own development goals and the company’s requirements.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
