To be part of the first cohort of the Pharma MBA at GBS felt like doing something extraordinary. I was excited to find a program especially designed for people working in the pharmaceutical industry. To meet experts from other companies with different job positions and to exchange views was one of the best experiences during the whole program. It facilitated thinking about new viewpoints and approaches for my current and future work. The program covered many relevant topics. Furthermore, GBS was always open for feedback to improve and develop an even better program. In addition, I really appreciated the Friday Talks giving deeper insights into companies’ perspectives
