    Career choice needs to be made by you only. You need to decide based on what kind of a job you are interested in pursuing. If you are going for an MBA job means you will be required to perform more of administrative related jobs. You will also be able to pursue marketing related jobs. However if you are interested in jobs like research, working for pharmaceutical companies you will need to pursue M. Pharm course. Also you can also drug companies. If interested in research area you can go for further studies like PHd. The decision can be made only by you.

    B.Pharm with MBA is a fine grouping. MBA offers candidates to take up specialization in their own related subjects. Many MBA colleges offer Pharmacy specialization with Business Management. This course will help you to develop a career in the Pharmacy industry in the marketing or administration field. Even though it is advisable to do M.Pharm and if possible plan to do a PhD in Pharmacy. This will provide you with an added advantage as you will be a specialist in this area. In addition to this you can also take up a PG Diploma course in Intellectual Property. This course is very useful for a career in the drug companies, as most of the companies are continuously registering for patents on their drugs.

    If I were you i would have gone for MBA. Because you have already gathered technical knowledge from your Bachelors degree.
    Now you should learn about the buisness part. B.Pharma + MBA will lend you a nice high package job in some reputed pharma company.
    Field can be Buisness devolpoment, sales & marketing, Operations management,clinical research.
    But if you are more intrested in technical , Research and devolopment kind of a job then go for M.Pharma.
    Make your choice.

    If you are more interested in your specific field of pharmacy, then you should opt M.Pharma along with PhD. This would give you specialty in you area of interest. If you are more interested in the field of management, the you should go for MBA or PGDM. The best option for you would be to pursue MBA in Pharmacy Management. Very less colleges provide this course but this degree will serve you underhanded in big pharmaceutical companies like Religare, Ranbaxy, Vedanta and even big hospitals like Fortis.
    all the best!!

    Bpharma and M.pharma has got a huge scope and growth.First of all I should tell you that Pharmacy People can work in many Areas like they can work in Various Laboratories ,They can work in Research labs ,They can work in Hospitals ,They can go for Phd Programme and work as a SRF (Senior Rearch Fellowship ).As the the number of Biopharmaceutical compnies are increasing in India day by Day ,there are huge number of Openings across India.Doing MPharma in Biotechnology is good but it will be more better if u complete your Phd in the same field.Doing Phd in the same field will create many other options also...so choice will be yours .
    The Best jobs which are available is in the Pharma sector in Gujrat...Better you take some good compnies and apply to them directlly you will definatelly get some results....All the best !!!

    Hii
    If you don't get seat in MBBS then you need to go for B.PHARM
    After B.phar you can go for M.pharm.
    M.pharm is only the extension for B.pharm.
    Through this you can keep your own medical shop and can work as medical representative.
    MBA:
    MBA is quite different field which you do after graduation.
    It is a two years course and you can work in top MNC's .
    Good luck..!

    Both the pg courses have good scope but as you completed graduation in pharmacy then i would like to suggest you to pursue m.pharm.But dont go with my suggestion instead you must choose according to your interest.M.pharm is a masters degree in pharmacy,you had completed pharmacy so you must learn more deeply about pharmacy.There are various branches in m.pharm as ceutics,analysis,cognosy and cology.You have to choose anyone of your interests,ceutics has major scope so mostly students prefer ceutics.Mba will provide you a knowledge that who to manage your business. To pursue m.pharm you have to give gpat exam which is conducted every year.

    EVERY STREAM IS HAVING ITS IMPORTANCE IN ITS OWN FIELD.
    YOU CAN NOT EVEN COMPARE IT.
    BUT STILL I WANT TO SAY MBA IS GOOD FOR YOUR CAREER.

    It depends on you what course you want to do PG in.M.Pharma is a course in which you will have to study science subjects along with detailed concepts of what you have studied in under graduation(UG).Whereas in MBA you will study business administration techniques and have subject options such as Business management,finance,banking,economics,Human resources(HR),Insurance and Risk Management,Logistics,Marketing,Retail management,etc.There are so many fields in which you can pursue MBA which develops your overall personality.So if you are interested in further studies and also some research work then M.Pharma is the best option for you.Otherwise you can go for MBA by giving CAT/MAT exams after graduation.

    Re: Which career option is better after B.Parm, M.pharm or MBA?

    Hi friend,

    You can choose M.B.A as you carrier after B.Parm , because packages offered by M.B.A jobs is satisfactory relatively M.pharm jobs.
    During M.B.A jobs you will be involved in jobs such as....
    • administration
    • management
    And job profile for M.B.A is quite impressive.
    You can also go for M.B.A in pharmacy related business management .

    But if you want to stick with your stream go for M.Pharm and you can get good salary jobs after course.

    Good Luck..!!

    Both the streams are good in their own ways. If you take up MBA you will be deviating from the stream and moving towards a management or administrative role. If you take up M.Pharm then you will be going for further specialisation. In terms of salary too there is not too much of difference. You need to decide based on the job you would like doing.

    Hello Friend

    B.Pharmacy which is a science group mainly deals with the Manufacturing of Drugs , Research oriented and also Clinical usage of drugs. Pharmacy field is having a lot of opportunities and also you must work hard inorder to get into top MNC's like Pfizer , Johnson & Johnson , and many top Indian Pharmaceutical companies like Ranbaxy , Dr. Reddy's , Biocon , Matrix , Aurbindo , etc.

    These MNC's are recruiting the Pharmacy graduates only for the production of Drugs and Research fields. Dude coming to Higher studies after your completion of B.Pharmacy , it depends on your Interest and i say that both the fields have the equal importance respectively.

    If you have interested to go for production side and start your career you can better go for M.Pharmacy as it will fetch you good pay not only this if you are also interested in Research field , Clinical side also M.Pharmacy is the best option. There are many streams in M.Pharmacy where you can do of your interest like

    Pharmaceutics - go for Production in Industry side
    Pharmacology - go for Clinical Research side
    Pharmaceutical Analysis - go for analysis of different drugs manufactured in Industry
    Pharmacognosy - Production
    Pharmaceutical Chemistry - Research of New Drugs

    In this way there are many options in doing M.Pharmacy besides these you can also go for MBA stream.

    MBA ( Master In Business Management ) is also one of the stream where a Pharmacy student can enter if you have interested in Business Administration side. Pharma MBA is one of the course offering by different universities and also some colleges for the Pharma Graduates , so you can also enter in MBA.

    It is also having good future and a very high pay as there are many vacancies for Pharma MBA students in MNC's , so in my opinion you go for MBA by attempting CAT or MAT exam.
    Some of the India's top colleges offering Pharma MBA

    1. DIPSAR - Delhi
    2. Jamia Hamdard - Delhi
    3. IMR Pharma Business School - Delhi
    4. NIPER - Mohali
    5. MANIPAL university

    Is a Bachelor course and talking about M.Pharma and MBA-
    Then both are Master degree course....
    So if you have bachelor's degree then you can do master else nope...
    So i think first going toward BPharma and then take MPharma which is best i think,.,....

    Re: Which career option is better after B.Parm, M.pharm or MBA?

    You have mentioned that you want to choose between two options that are-M.Pharmacy and MBA(Masters of business administration).
    The following options can be discussed as follows:
    1)M.Pharmacy-
    If you further want to move ahead in your field then you can choose M.Pharmacy.This is the post graduation level of the course
    which have opted at your graduation level.It is observed that most of the candidates who opt for this course mainly want to get a license
    from the respective authority and then they want to enter into the medical retail sector .

    2)MBA(Masters of business administration):
    You can choose MBA as your masters program if you feel that you want to make your career in the field of management.
    This course can develop your career at a rapid speed and you may be able to get admission in one of the best management colleges of India.
    Many students have made successful careers in this field.
