Annual Healthcare Symposium

Blanche and Irwin Lerner Center for the Study of Pharmaceutical Management Issues

The Annual Healthcare Symposium is a signature event for Rutgers Business School’s Lerner Center. It showcases the center’s role as a source of thought leadership for issues and changes in the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.

The event regularly draws an audience of MBA alumni, industry professionals, faculty, and current students, as well as members of the center’s board, including Irwin Lerner, former chief executive officer of drug maker Hoffmann-LaRoche and an alumnus of the Rutgers MBA program. The work of the Lerner Center also bolsters the strength of the MBA in Pharmaceutical Management at Rutgers.
