    Re: Does pharma MBA is a better option after B.Pharma?

    Both the courses are good and the scope offered by the two is different. M Pharma prepares you for as career in research and development in pharma while and MBA will prepare you for a sales and marketing, human resource, finance or systems role in pharma and even non pharma companies. Opportunities for post graduates in pharmaceutical sciences include faculty positions in university colleges, government departments, research institutes and also as medical practitioners, drug inspectors, drug analysts, pharmacists, pharmacology experts, pharmacologists, production managers, and quality managers. The choice you make depends on your interests, aptitude, ability, career goals and personality. You can also opt for a MBA pharma qualification meant specifically for pharmaceutical executives.
