Considering a "pharmaceutical MBA?"

If you search for "pharmaceutical MBA" in Google, you'll find that the first page of search results lists the following MBA programs that focus on the pharmaceutical industry:
  • Executive Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Marketing MBA from Saint Joseph's University
  • MBA in Pharmaceutical Management from Drexel University
  • MBA in Pharmaceutical Management from Fairleigh Dickinson University
  • MBA in Pharmaceutical Management from Rutgers Business School
The University of the Sciences in Philadelphia offers an MBA in Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Business. The University of Colorado offers an Executive MBA in Pharmaceutical Management. Aspen University offers an MBA in Pharmaceutical Marketing and Management.

One of the biggest advantages of pursuing an MBA that has a focus in the pharmaceutical industry is this: you'll build a focused social network that includes executives in the pharmaceutical industry. If your main goal is to meet clinicians and other professionals who work in the biopharma industry, it might make sense to consider a pharma MBA. The most valuable networking happens face-to-face, so you won't get the same type of networking experience if you pursue an online MBA.

I am currently a business school student in the Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Executive MBA program at Saint Joseph's University Erivan K. Haub School of Business in Philadelphia, PA. The Nationally-ranked and AACSB-accredited Haub School of Business, centrally located in the mid-Atlantic pharmaceutical and healthcare corridor, is able to bring together industry experts and a world-class faculty for a unique industry-focused, immersive executive program.
