MPharm and Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration graduate

This programme is open to MPharm undergraduates and early career pharmacists, and taught as an intensive June summer school. This format ensures there is no overlap with your MPharm degree, allowing you to focus on your undergraduate degree during term-time.

The Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration draws on the core elements of the Master's in Business Administration (MBA) run by Henley Business School which apply during the first five post-registration years. You will learn the following:

  • Introduction to management and organisations
  • Managing performance in organisations through people
  • Building value: Financial and management accounting principles
  • Leadership, change and strategy

The Henley Business School is an international triple-accredited business school, giving you the knowledge you need to succeed in management within the pharmaceutical or healthcare industry.

Invaluable knowledge for your future career

This ground-breaking, innovative qualification aims to develop your knowledge and understanding in key areas of management, which you will find invaluable in any career path you follow.

The key subject areas within the programme focus on management skills, which are critical to your early career, including managing people, finance, leadership, strategy and change. This is designed to allow you to apply these key skills to the work experience you gain during your MPharm, or within your workplace.

Dynamic and interactive learning

The certificate is taught through a combination of engaging, interactive workshops and group work, specifically tailored to the pharmaceutical and healthcare industry context.

Alongside these workshops, parts of the programme are also taught through self-study, which is supported by online materials and tutorials.
