Blogged by Claire Chesworth on 31/10/2017.
  • When: Thursday 9 November, 14.00 – 18.00
  • Where: The Careers Service

This half-day workshop is mainly aimed at students (both undergrads and postgrads) who have an interest in understanding the innovation dynamics of the bio-pharmaceutical industry – but all students are welcome to attend! It will provide you with a taste of how investment decisions are taken, to beat competitors to a lucrative deal, and the challenges the industry faces. Catenion, a global strategy consultancy who focus on the biopharma industry, will use a competitive board game that has been developed specifically to mimic the pharmaceutical industry, and you will take on the role of an executive team of a mid-size company. As a management team, you will develop, execute, and alter your strategy in response to your own success and failures – and pounce on the missed opportunities of others. At the end, the winning team will be invited to share their strategy. Major lessons learnt and and key questions for the future will be summarized and opened for discussion.
