Executive Diploma in Strategic Pharmacy Business Management
DBS, in partnership with the Irish Pharmacy Union, are offering a new Executive Diploma in Strategic Pharmacy Business Management. The complexity of managing a pharmacy and its operations is of growing importance as the sector is becoming more competitive. Pharmacy owners and managers need to match consumer demand with shelf supply, by balancing variety and service levels, and optimising demand and profit via a carefully calibrated price and marketing decision. To manage these issues we need to look at, space; ranges; stock; communication and pricing, all in a holistic approach.
Managing a pharmacy deals with innovation, problem solving, people management and resources administration, all really important factors for maintaining competitive advantage in a sector that is experiencing substantial transformation in Ireland.
The Diploma in Strategic Pharmacy Business Management is suitable for Pharmacists who want to learn the skills required to succeed in this field while dealing with the challenges that the sector is presenting to them.
Pharmacists will gain an understanding of decision-making under uncertainty, the variations in strategy among individuals when there is no “right” or “wrong” path, and then some guidance about the sorts of trade-offs various decisions and strategies engender.
In this course, DBS introduce these multiple learning objectives in a powerful way, giving Pharmacists all the different skills required to become a successful Business Manager.
