The pharmaceutical industry is a global one that offers many different career possibilities. Pharmaceutical Science with Business at Keele was co-developed with experts from the pharmaceutical industry who work in areas including formulation development and regulatory affairs, and academic experts who have first hand experience of working in the field. As a result of this, graduate skills are aligned to the industry demands. The pharmaceutical industry strives to develop new drugs, the formulation of medicines and medical devices to advance healthcare provision.
