Program Overview

As pharmaceutical companies invest aggressively into emerging markets, the pharmaceutical industry continues to grow at a rapid rate. The new world of patient advocacy, increase in chronic diseases, heightened patient expectations and more strict drug regulations push pharma companies to embrace those challenges and adopt a patient-centric approach to market their offerings.

The Professional Pharmaceutical Marketing Certificate is designed to provide professionals in the pharma industry with the vision to adopt a service-oriented model to pharmaceutical marketing rather than a drug-oriented approach.
