    Re: choice of m.pharm

    Both these course will provide with good opportunities. But you need to select the course which will best suit you. Like you need to decide on the course which will help you in achieving your career aspirations. So first decide on the kind of career you would like to have. If you choose M.Pharm you will be further specialising in the pharmacy field. You can go in for specialisation like industry pharmacy, pharmaceutical analysis etc. After that you will have the option to go in for teaching or research in the same field. Also you will have options like setting up your own pharmacy. If you choose MBA you will find opportunities more in the management areas. Your job profile will not be technically oriented. So take a decision which will be a better option for you.

    I would say better go for M.Pharma courses because now a days Pharmaceutical sector in India is growing very fast ,There are many new drugs are coming in the market and different research work is going on various diseases and Drugs and It has got huge scope too,So I would say, if You go for M.Pharma you will get the chance to enter Research works of various companies where you can earn a good package of money also...and your experience increases your value in the market will increase like anything because there is already shortage of Researchers in India..so its a good option you have choosen and go for it...MBA is a different field and it deals mainlly with the Management subjects ,Yes I agree it has also got a good scope bit being in your field and working for the companies related to your field will help you to grow more compare to other companies...
    I wish you all the best!!!!!!!

    Well both of them can provide you good job prospect.

    MBA is in its own place while M.Pharma holds it own position and market value.

    It depends of type of job you are expecting, technical or managerial. A MBA degree can get you a good job in production and management side, while M.Pharma get you in Manufacturing, Technical and development side which would be challenging jobs.

    Pharmaceutical Industry at M.Pharma level has following specializations:-
    • M.Pharma (Pharmaceutical)
    • M.Pharma (Pharmacology)
    • M.Pharma (Pharmacognosy)
    • M.Pharma (Industrial Chemistry)
    • M.Pharma (Pharmaceutics)

    Out of them Pharmaceutical is witnessing lack of good job and good pay. Yeah jobs are easily availble in this part but not satisfactory. Rest of all is fine you can go for them, without any hesitation.

    you should do MBA if you want to do course as view of salary
    In M.pharma you can select Industry Chemistry as your subject.

    There is no point in doing b.pharma for four years then going and doing an mba which is an general field and mostly there would not be any use of what you have learnt all these years in your graduation but if you take m.pharma you will be staying in your own area of expertise and you will have your own value.
    as for as the earnings are concerned in both the fields i may agree that if you do an mbs from an good college there are every chance that you may good payment in the initial years and even better than the what you will get after doing m.pharma but after experience there is no doubt that the masters in you own area of expertise will surely give you more money than any other field which you think of joining.

    i think you will do m.pharmacy the reason behind this is that m.pharmacy have lot of scope in industry and in research . next which branch is better there are branches
    1 pharmaceutices in this you will go through about the formulation part . the scope in this is that you will join in research and development in industry and job security is there as many of the industry have R D.
    2 PHARMACOLGY in this you will learn about drugs mechanisn , there interaction pathophysioligy and screeing . in this you can persue further in clinical research
    3 pharmachemistry job profile of this branch is in quality control , analytical research development and can become part drug design also
    4 quality assurance in this every industry have QA department and you need to be carefull abou documentation
    so in my view you should go with the m.pharmacy

    according to me you should to do the M.Pharma after doing the B.Pharma
    and in the M.Pharma you should choose the Pharmaceuticals branch as it in the great demand in the markets
    but it depends on you whether you want to do the MBA or the M.Pharma
    but as you have done the B.Pharma you should go for the M.Pharma as it would be very much beneficial in your career as you will be doing higher degree in the Pharma field .

    so best of luck

    Hii
    • M.pharm after B.pharm just only gives you the extensive phama knowledge.
    • Now a days pharmacy is not good scope and salary is also not very high.
    • IF you do MBA then you can global wide opportunities.
    • Do MBA from reputed universities so that you can placed in top most MNC's.
    • Now a days an MBA graduate can demand minimum of 1 lakh salary per month.
    • So, proceed with MBA you will have future.
    Good luck..!

    Dear guest,
    You better go for M.Pharmacy...Being a B.Pharm student you will be having better knowledge regarding the subjects.......It is always be helpful when doing your M.pharm....Instead of m.b.a which is having the subjects which you really dont know much...There's saying "Known devil is better than Unknown"......Finally,selection is yours....all the best....

    See very frankly speaking that there s hardly any scope after m.pharm in any stream. Firstly m.pharm s too hectic and tiresome and after all fuss u wont get jobs. People usualy misguide others to join m.pharm bt there s no job at al. So many m.pharm candidates r now in other streams like banking, management etc. They v spnd lakhs bt wd no gain. Further colleges fool studnts during admsn n later leave the studnts n trouble. Go for MBA. U wd definitly prosper or else suffer like many others.
