Start small, think big
My journey from a village at the foot of the Andes to a multinational pharmaceutical company at the foot of the Alps.
Itʼs hard to understand how I ended up where I ended up. Not so long ago, I was enjoying my childhood in the middle of the Andes, and now I am pursuing the career of my dreams in the Alps. I am a biomedical engineer by training and I started my career doing research on brain antitumor drugs on rats in Germany. Willing to get more interaction with people, I decided to continue my career in sales, marketing and business development. Moved by my passion for improving peopleʼs lives and my interest in business, I decided to enrol for an MBA and seek opportunities in the healthcare industry. The Business Perspectives programme has been an intense experience and has shaped my life yesterday, today and tomorrow. From the Andes over the Alps to ... infinity and beyond.
We have to be grateful! At every destination I arrived, I found people that have been meticulously planning and working for years to arrive where they are. And for these many years (10–25 years), they have been exposed to one part of this complex organisation. In this programme you will learn to adapt to change fast, you will learn to be proactive and create opportunities, you will learn to navigate the organisation seamlessly, you will create a network of guidance and support and you will get all of this in just 2 years.
This programme gives you the unique opportunity to effectively cross-pollinate the organisation. From the get-go, you are given a network of guidance and support that will act as door-opener to pools of expertise spread across the whole organisation. This expertise together with your skillset will set you up to be a great contributor wherever you may go.
