This certificate is designed for anyone in a management position—from newly appointed managers to experienced high-level managers—within the pharmaceutical industry.

Forward-thinking companies understand that establishing a culture of integrity is not only compatible with strong business performance, it is crucial to maintaining a competitive advantage. Using lessons from these companies and cutting-edge research, the Ethics and the Pharmaceutical Industry online certificate program coaches managers to lead in a way that fosters corporate values, promotes a culture of integrity, reduces ethics and compliance risks, and drives sustained success—all in a flexible, interactive, and peer-focused learning environment.

Participants who earn the online certificate will understand:

  • How ethical decisions are made and how those decisions translate into ethical behavior.
  • Key legal and ethical issues confronting the pharmaceutical industry.
  • The impact of ethical conduct that extends beyond check-the-box, compliance-driven objectives.
  • The crucial paradox of sincerity—that the biggest payoff for ethical conduct occurs when the pursuit of ethics is done for its own good.
  • How to raise ethical issues in the workplace.
