O Leading Pharma foi uma excelente oportunidade para conhecer a indústria de uma forma transversal, abordando também os desafios atuais e futuros.
No meu dia a dia trabalho no departamento de Recursos Humanos, e foi muito enriquecedor compreender um pouco mais sobre todo o funcionamento da nossa indústria.
Cada vez mais, trabalhamos em colaboração e é extremamente importante perceber como neste mundo, em constante competição, conseguimos encontrar sinergias com as diferentes áreas.

The Leading Pharma Program was my first contact with areas such as management, marketing, trading and finance. It is two intense months, but with a lot of (in) formation in fundamental areas. It allowed me to have a much broader notion of the pharmaceutical industry, and it gave me enough knowledge to identify problems and seek solutions autonomously. It was so important in my life that it allowed me to jump from a laboratory career to the development of the business, with the necessary tools for my involvement in this new area.

I consider that Leading Pharma exceeded my expectations, and the competences, critical sense and the possibility to interact with several interveners and recognized professionals of the pharmaceutical industry, as well as the possibility to listen to experiences coming from these interveners and excellent group of colleagues, justify completely the energy and time invested and the effort made beyond work, culminating in a personal and professional growth.

Para alguém à procura de acelerar a transição da sua carreira profissional para a indústria farmacêutica, o programa Leading Pharma representa a oportunidade de alavancar o currículo e contactar diretamente com alguns dos principais intervenientes nas diversas áreas da indústria. A competência e disponibilidade do corpo docente, a qualidade das instalações e a dinâmica de um grupo heterogéneo (mesmo em tempo de pandemia) permitiram-me desenvolver conhecimentos e adquirir novas perspetivas nas quais me baseei para encarar com confiança o meu futuro na indústria farmacêutica.

Do different in the health market. Create value for the customer ... which is much more than offering an innovative product. This is an inevitability and a necessary condition for the survival of companies and teams working in the pharmaceutical industry today. This program was an opportunity to review fundamental concepts, and to interact with areas of knowledge for which we are not so awake, but whose concepts, tools and methods can help us to positively impact the business and to value the strategic importance of Medical Affairs in the process of creating value associated with the drug.

After a few years in the Pharmaceutical Industry I had the need to amplify my business vision. It is known that the sector is in change and that the challenges in technology, economy and health regulations make us be different, above all it makes us being better. Leading Pharma allowed me to rethink the Pharmaceutical Industry, in a more transversal and integrated perspective. This wide vision is patented in contents and is also present in the diversity of the faculty and its participants. Always with the excellence of CATÓLICA-LISBON and always in a spirit that is very entertaining.

Leading Pharma is taught by an excellent faculty, always present and available, endowed with a wide professional experience. The scope and timeliness of the content taught and the sharing of different knowledge with colleagues, allowed me to acquire a wide vision of several areas in the pharmaceutical industry and be prepared for the changes that are already taking place in the sector. I highly recommend to everyone that wants to develop competences and face with confidence the constant challenges that they face.

 The Executive Training of CATÓLICA-LISBON "Leading Pharma - Management Program for the Pharmaceutical Industry" was without doubt an exposure place for share ideas, debate, learning and growth. In this place along with the most diverse lecturers and professionals as colleagues, I got, not only an educational background that I felt it was needed, but also a wider and management vision on the current pharmaceutical industry.
