Pharmaceutical Management Club
We are dedicated to increasing awareness of the Rutgers Business School's unique Pharmaceutical Management MBA Program through promotion, distribution of branded material and our "Rx Success" newsletter.
The club establishes, fosters and encourages relationships among RBS MBA students, alumni and industry professionals in order to grow the pharmaceutical network necessary to secure internships and full-time positions, and build successful business careers.
Moreover, we strive to ensure that Pharmaceutical Management students acquire superior knowledge regarding the pharmaceutical industry and the industry's unique business practices and processes through various interactive events including corporate sponsor site visits, a speaker series, lunch & learns, and social mixers. The Pharmaceutical Management Club is focused on achieving three objectives for our members: promotion, networking, and education.
