Could the pharmaceutical industry be your future career platform?

The Pharma Industry Future Stars (PIF Stars) is PIF’s networking programme providing university-level students in both scientific and applied fields with the unique opportunity to get acquainted with the versatile and international business and the companies in the pharmaceutical branch.

The programme offers the participants information about the jobs and career potentials in the pharmaceutical industry, focusing on various sides of the business. The themes include pharmaceutical development and research, manufacturing and distribution, marketing and sales, international aspects as well as the operating environment and societal responsibility of the pharmaceutical industry. As a participant, you will see different corporate cultures, meet professionals of various fields and have a chance to discuss your own interests with them. You will also be able to network with other students that are taking the step towards the practical world of work.

We are looking for students of business, biosciences, pharmacy, health economics and medicine, in particular, but do not hesitate to join even if you specialise in something else. The pharmaceutical industry needs varied and multifaceted competences!

You can file your application to the programme if you are close to graduation (at least 75% of the studies completed). The programme is mainly run in Finnish but it also includes elements in English.

The PIF Stars networking programme has already been arranged five times, with almost 150 students in total participating.

The next programme will start in September 2019.
