How a Masters Can Help Advance your Career

You have already completed your science or engineering degree and have chosen the pharmaceutical, medical device or food science industries for your career.  If you’re currently deciding whether to pursue a master’s degree, it’s important to ensure you’re investing your time wisely.  It is a big decision for anyone – and it can take time to weigh up the impact on your life. Read on to find out why choosing a Masters from Innopharma could be the best decision you make this year.  

What skills are in demand?

The pharmaceutical, medical device and food science industries are all booming in Ireland – with the pharma industry alone accounting for up to €30bn in exports. And when an industry is booming – it needs employees. In a report released last year, the Expert Group on Future Skills Needs estimated that over the next four years there will be at least 8,400 job openings for biopharma professionals in Ireland. As it stands there simply aren’t enough skilled professionals to fill the anticipated needs of the industry, which is why sensible upskilling can give your career a whole new lease of life.
