MBA Clinical Research

Rushford Business School Switzerland offers one of the most comprehensive MBA programs in Clinical Research in collaboration with the School of Health Sciences at James Lind Institute. This program places emphasis on hands-on aspects of the management of clinical trials. Clinical research is a global phenomenon with almost all countries participating in clinical trials. Stakeholders in clinical trials range from academia, research institutions, industry, governments, patients and caregivers, payers, healthcare organizations, and physicians to name a few.

The regulatory agencies in most markets have been increasingly demanding more concrete safety and efficacy evidence in support of new drug approvals. With the development of more modern study designs and the utilization of techniques such as adaptive study designs, modelling, and simulation, clinical trials are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Newer regulations and guidelines are being applied which necessitates that clinical research professionals stay current on these advances in knowledge and understanding of how to implement clinical trials.

The MBA in Clinical Research program at Rushford is suited to aspirants as well as clinical research professionals of varying experience. Students who complete this program are expected to have advanced knowledge of all the fundamental concepts of clinical trial design and implementation, operational aspects of clinical trials, project management, financial aspects of clinical research, international regulatory affairs, and other aspects of clinical trial management.

Rushford offers Recognition of Prior Experience (RPE) and thus a formal bachelor’s degree is not mandatory for entering this program.
