    In MBA you will find subjects like MANAGEMENT , ORGANISATIONAL BEHAVIOUR and BUSINESS COMMUNICATION SKILLS.

    These kinds of subjects helps in every field.

    Basically students learn how to be successful manager in any organization or in any company.

    So , in every sector you will find post or manager who are handling the Business effectively.

    If you opt for MBA in Pharma you are actually understanding the business side of the PHARMACY.

    INDIA comes fourth or fifth in world in producing the qualified GRADUATE /POST GRADUATE in PHARMA.

    As pharmacy has huge scope in INDIA.

    MBA in pharmacy will open up many career lines for you in Research and in teaching and also in many other areas.

    As you are not interested in lab you can look for other option in the field like in

    pharmaceutical patent laws, business planning and strategy,

    project management, operation management publishing communication promotional activities,

    and management consultancy, competitive research, clinical research, regulatory support and business development.

    these function that are critical to drug discovery offer a great opportunity while leaving the lab behind.

    Re: What is MBA all about after completing B.Pharma?



    Hello friend,

    If you are really not interested in doing technical jobs,then obviously MBA Pharma should be your first preference.

    Cause once you do M.Pharma then you should sit in lab or R&D centre or something like that where you should use your pharma knowledge and do always reserch,practicals etc etc.

    So if you do not want such kind of jobs then you should go for MBA Pharma offered in many colleges in India both in regular mode and correspondence mode.If you want to get a good high position immediately after your job then you should go for MBA Pharma.Where you do not have to do the technical aspects of job but you have to mange the people who do it.

    But if you want to do job after B.Pharma then you should go for job and do MBA in correspondence mode offered in many distance learning university.

    Re: What is MBA all about after completing B.Pharma?

    Dear as for as my views are concerned that MBA is always better than M. Pharmaceutical because there are so many features of MBA and it is more preferred course while job than any other master's degree that is why you must go for MBA

    If you choose M. Pharmaceutical then you will earn everything about Pharmacy which is in your syllabus and the same thing you will learn in MBA but you will not learn anything extra after or during your M. Pharma that is why you need to choose MBA because once you get admission in MBA first you will learn what is management, administration etc. and when you will get enough knowledge about management and business corporate sector during your first year then you will definitely get enough ideas and thoughts about your future in various sectors because MBA will take you to the profession and M. Pharma will also but not better than MBA that is why i would like to suggest you that you must join MBA - 2 years master's degree course

    All the best
