Women in Pharma Business Acumen

Registration for this event is closes on Wednesday at 10am. If you have any questions, please contact the office at (781) 647-4773 or office@ISPEBoston.org. 

Join Advantexe and ISPE Women in Pharma (WIP) on a digital simulation providing participants with the knowledge and new perspectives needed to develop their skills, careers, and earn a "seat at the table".  During the 3 sessions (2 virtual and 1 in-person), learners will be introduced to business acumen and leadership topics through simulations similar to how pilots hone their instincts and flying skills through a flight simulator.  You'll be learning how to "fly a business”!

Check out this quick video that explains the program:

 Advantexe simulations serve as a bridge between learning and real-life experience by applying new ideas and concepts in a risk-free environment that emulates a working environment to experience systematic consequences of your actions. There are two types of simulations in this program:

1.                  Business Acumen - simulation designed to show the cause and effect of strategy development and execution through cross-functional operational business decisions

2.                  Best Practical Leadership - decision-tree simulations where learners interact with characters in the realistic business situations and "the story" unfolds based upon learners' actions at critical decision points.
