Katz, pharmacy partner in business of medicines course

Pitt’s School of Pharmacy and Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business are forming a partnership to offer a course on the “business of medicines in health care.” This is the first step toward a dual doctor of pharmacy/MBA degree program.

Offered in an executive boardroom format, this interactive elective will engage students in a structured understanding of the business side of medicines in the health care industry and other related fields. For instance, students will study different leadership styles and corporate cultures in an organization, follow health spending on medicines longitudinally from consumer to product to service, discover how market conditions affect operations and profitability and learn about the executive’s career-development path.

UPMC Health Plan provided seed monies to support the course.
