On the 11th March, an experienced team of our consultants delivered an experiential workshop on Strategy Consulting in Pharmaceuticals and Healthcare to over 100 students as part of UCL’s Careers in the Life Science Industry Week.

During the workshop we explored a real-life case study on the hot-topic of CAR-T therapy, and, with active participation from the audience, worked through a typical pharma competitive landscaping assessment.

The level of engagement from the students was fantastic and it showcased creativity, a clear understanding of the background and core analysis skills. The experiential session was spiced up by breaking news of a big competitor stepping into the market, which tested students’ ability to re-assess previous assumptions. In the final part of the workshop students worked with the CHR team to conduct a SWOT analysis of competitors.

Our team also gave the students a flavour of what life is like at Cambridge Healthcare Research, including a section specifically dedicated to progression, the application process, and general tips for a successful career in consulting!

The feedback was terrific and our team is really looking forward to delivering even more engaging events to encourage students to consider a career in life science strategy consulting .
