Pharmaceutical & Healthcare Marketing Major
Political philosophy, scientific breakthroughs and technology constantly reshape global healthcare. The industry leaders are looking for young professionals who understand these changes and have a grasp on the future of the pharmaceutical industry. A thorough understanding of efficient clinical research, innovation and managing complex healthcare costs are challenges we prepare our majors for when they leave Hawk Hill. Because the landscape is constantly changing, Saint Joseph’s provides pharmaceutical marketing majors with an elite faculty boasting both past industry experience and active consulting. This impressive faculty is supplemented by the industry executives brought in as guest lecturers for students in class and at the monthly PILOT – Pharmaceutical Industry Leaders of Tomorrow – meetings. The connections made through classroom visits and out-of-class experiences have led students to internship and job placement with pharmaceutical companies like GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, and Pfizer as well as supporting ad agencies, data managers, and clinical organizations.
The pharmaceutical & healthcare marketing major provides students with Co-op and traditional four year options. In each of these offerings, students study the global pharmaceutical industry, pharmaceutical marketing research, pharmaceutical marketing promotion, the pharmaceutical channels (supply chain) and pharmaceutical marketing strategy.
Because pharmaceutical & healthcare marketing covers a broad scope of topics, students come out of Saint Joseph’s prepared to enter the job market in any number of fields. Graduates have found industry careers in Communications and Public Relations, Clinical Development, Market Research & Data Analytics, Marketing/Advertising, Sales and Trade/Supply Chain Analytics.
