Saint Joseph’s University has launched an Online Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Marketing MBA for Executives. The program is being offered at the Erivan K. Haub School of Business and is accredited by the AACSB. The entire program can be completed in 20 months – 24 courses with four residencies.
To quote the website:
“the Online Pharma MBA format is designed specifically to accommodate today’s executive schedule and global assignments by eliminating obstacles like geography and time-zones. Ideal for professionals in the pharma, biotech, device, diagnostics and healthcare sectors, our accelerated program offers the flexibility to participate in an industry-specific, lock-step curriculum, taught by our world-class faculty, and driven by state-of-the-art technology.”
After reviewing the website, this program seems like an excellent choice for marketing professionals, regulatory professionals, medical communicators, and medical writers who are interested in taking their experience in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, or medical devices to the executive level. Technical writers who are looking to make a career change that leverages their substantial experience in technology might also see value in a program like this one.
The tuition and fees are expensive; though they are comparable to other programs I have seen and heard about. If you’re interested in a program like this one at Saint Joseph’s and the fees are out of reach, there may be scholarships available. The website doesn’t say anything about them. Contact Christine Anderson, Senior Manager, Executive Relations & Industry Relations for more details.
