Pharmaceutical Management(Introducing from 2020)

India today faces a dearth of management professionals in the pharmaceutical industry and there is a lack of formally trained professionals in pharmaceutical management. Currently, the pharmaceutical industry is managed by graduates and postgraduates from pharmacy/pharmacology with very little exposure to management or on the other hand is managed by general management professionals. The pharmaceutical industry is a highly specialized industry and requires intensive orientation to the pharmaceutical processes and the management professionals trained in pharmaceutical management to govern the industry. The industry is growing at a rapid pace and requires specialized managers in pharmaceutical management in the future. Keeping this in mind, IIHMR-Bangalore has proposed to offer a specialization in ‘Pharmaceutical Management’ for the PGDM course starting 2020.
PGDM with a specialization in Pharmaceutical Management will be a two-year full-time AICTE approved program designed by Hospital Industry experts to prepare students to work in Hospitals, Healthcare organizations, and Pharmaceutical Industry. In the first year, students would study the basics of healthcare and management. In the second year, students would get specialized in Pharmaceutical management/administration stream and learn the management aspects concerned with the Pharmaceutical Industry.
PGDM with specialization in pharmaceutical Management will be a specialized course meant for imparting administrative and management skills; to work, manage and lead in the Health, Pharmaceutical and Hospital sector. The course also covers two months of intensive summer training and 4 months of dissertation (internship) before campus placements; which can help students practically understand and gather knowledge on adequate hospital management and administrative practices to make job-ready.
Students after completion of this course can look at lucrative career options and campus placements in Clinical Operations, Non – Clinical Operations, Pharmaceutical Industry, HR, Administration, Quality, Sales, Business Development, Health Finance, Patient care, Customer Service, Telemedicine, Medical Tourism, etc.
Since IIHMR Bangalore is an autonomous Institution approved by AICTE, Ministry of HRD, GoI; we keep upgrading our curriculum as and when required as per the expectation of the Industry. Hence, the curriculum followed by IIHMR Bangalore is very much Industry-relevant and need of the hour for people who are willing to shape their career in the Pharmaceutical sector.
