The MSc Pharmaceutical Enterprise programme is an applied multidisciplinary course designed for entrepreneurial high-achieving individuals with ambition to take leading roles in SME pharmaceutical companies.
As the major pharma business model changes, established and emerging SME pharmaceutical companies are increasingly delivering novel candidate pharmaceuticals (small molecules and biologicals). This trend is expected to continue and offers a very nourishing environment for spin-out and other SME pharmaceutical companies that require high calibre personnel who are knowledgeable about all aspects of pharmaceutical enterprise.
he MSc Pharmaceutical Enterprise programme is delivered by experts in the field, many with on-going experience of the sector; and this ensures the programme maintains relevance in this fast moving industry.
The interactive teaching equips you with the medical, scientific, regulatory and business skills to achieve success. Internships and consultancy project opportunities arising from associated SME companies offer highly prized ‘real life’ experiences.
The MSc Pharmaceutical Enterprise programme aims to provide you with a toolbox of skills to enable you to:
- select, develop and commercialise projects with therapeutic potential
- create, seek funding and take leading executive roles in companies to exploit the commercial potential of projects in a spin-out/SME environment,
