Hello, Sikha All



All the area of M.Pharm are equally important for those who have grip on particular subjects. Follow the given link,

M.Pharm in Pharmaceutics is most valuable in India where as in US and other foreign countries pharmacology is well established. Pharmaceutics is unique subject deals with all F&D, production etc. so, scope is clear. Though some places of pharmacology are absorbed by MBBS but M.Pharm in pharmacology is competitive with MBBS. A person with Pharmacology can enter in preclinical and clinical studies. Also Pharm.D is mainly deals with pharmacology.
For more information about pharmaceutics and pharmacology visit,

Herbal Drug industry is booming in India and other parts. so pharmacognosy is bigger aspect now. Demand of herbal drugs are elevated due to less side effects. Himalaya, Zandu, Dabur and so many are standing in squad and looking for such person.

Recent Market shows that M.Pharm with chemistry are less absorbed in industry than B.Sc, Chemistry. Because in pharma chem., we are more concentrating on SAR of the drug molecules.

Pharma-analysis is other important line where one can go for QA, QC etc. And other fields like biotech, microbiology have less chance in it. It is unique, so you can also go for it.

MBA - Some of The best Institutions of India which conducting Pharma-MBA are: NIPER, NMIMS, Manipal....

But if you are pharmacy graduate, it will better for you to go for pharma MBA rather than general MBA.
Though general MBA has more chances to get job but it may not be of standard level. Here, standard level is not mentioned about salary but it is related to your interest.

HR is booming. so you can get job as junior or assistant manager easily.

MBA in pharmaceutical marketing is good way to mould the career. Recently you had might be seen that only pharmaceutical companies are withstanded in economical recession. Therefore being with pharma-companies rather than other is cleverness.
