Pursuing MBA Pharma after B.Pharmacy

A girl student from Chennai has a doubt on the future course of action after B. Pharmacy. The question goes like ‘I am a B. Pharmacy final year student. What will be the best option after my B. Pharm? Shall I go for MBA- Pharma or General MBA. If I go for General MBA, what specialization is good for me? Please suggest me the colleges providing MBA- Pharma in India and also exams to be written? How will be the career after this course?

It is heartening to note that students are considering pursuing MBA after your B.Pharm. MBA in Pharma management is gaining importance. There are good number of institutes offering MBA in this vertical. National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education & Research (NIPER), SAS Nagar, Mohali is the preferred choice to pursue this course. Other institutes offering MBA in Pharma are Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, Mumbai; Indian Institute of Pharmaceutical Marketing, Lucknow; Mahrshi Dayanad University, Rohtak; Poddar Management & Training Institute, Jaipur, SRM University School of  Management,  Chennai, etc. Osmania University is offering this course on distance mode.

Normally students with 60% and above in B.Pharm are eligible criteria for reputed schools. In addition, they would also need a valid GPAT/GATE/NET score card. Some of the schools conduct their own tests. Students are assessed in the areas of English Comprehension, Numerical Ability and Reasoning, Business Knowledge, etc. All the schools conduct group discussions and personal interviews during counseling.

MBA in Pharma Management is a promising course and offers good potential for career prospects. It is one of the largest growing sectors and demand for such professional is on rise.
