“I selected the BU EMBA program for its outstanding reputation and focus on enhancing manager’s decision making and leadership skills. These skills are critical for success in the pharmaceutical industry, which is dealing with immense challenges to increase productivity and drastically improve late stage pipelines, all in the context of sky-rocketing health care costs and greater scientific, regulatory, political and legal hurdles.”
