What do I know about functions and postions in industry? How can I read job ads? How are decisions made?For many life scientists in academia the biotech & pharmaceutical industry is a ‘black box‘.

In this training you will learn: - what the general trends in today’s health care industry are - how the business model of biotech & pharma companies differs from each other and what it means for their employees - how biotech & pharma companies are structured - what entry points to industry exist for scientists - how typical career tracks in industry look like - how decisions in a global pharma company are made The theoretical knowledge you receive will be complemented by interactive sessions and exercises in small groups.
