Life Sciences

Improved standard of living and longer life expectancy in the population have contributed to an ever-increasing demand for quality health services and products. Technological development and increased globalisation mean that an increasing number of new services and products meet this increasing demand more quickly than ever before. The Life Sciences sector is subject to rigorous public regulation as well as with more intense competition to be first to market with products and services.

The Life Sciences sector is complex and dynamic, and includes sub-sectors such as:

• Pharmaceuticals
• Biotechnology and Genetic Technology
• Medical Equipment
• Diagnostics
• Health Services & Hospitals
• Health Products

Requirements for the executives of the future
Life Sciences executives of the future must embrace a number of specialty fields including strategic marketing, management of approvals and licences, and efficient R&D. The ability to head multidisciplinary teams and optimise a product portfolio in view of investments and launches is of essential importance.
