Level 8 BA (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Business Operations

This course starts in September and is flexibly designed to suit the needs of those in employment. Lectures are a blend of online, distance and 2 Saturdays per month in Dublin.

The pharmaceutical industry has traditionally required individuals with strong science or engineering backgrounds to support its significant manufacturing activities in Ireland. Today, there is a new skill-set required along with those with scientific knowledge. This skill-set requires professional individuals with a strong knowledge of manufacturing, compliance, regulation as well as business improvement. These skills need to be supported with an ability to assimilate information, make effective decisions and communicate clearly using the latest technologies and systems. This BA (Hons) in Pharmaceutical Business Operations developed by Innopharma College of Applied Sciences in conjunction with Griffith College and is suitable for those with a higher certificate in science, engineering or a related discipline and will equip individuals with these skills and competencies.

This programme is delivered part-time and lectures are broadcast live using an online training platform, giving you the opportunity to join the class online if for some reason you cannot attend class in person. The modules are also recorded which means you can view them at a later stage.
