Hi,

Feel free to reach me to practice the pharma cases. The key topics they might test:

  • OTC vs prescription and implications (most often in market entry cases)
  • Patent regulation and pricing strategy after the patent finishes
  • R&D portfolio optimization
  • Pharma value chain - importing the drugs and components
  • Consumers and decision making - whom do you have to market
  • Salesforce effectiveness

Best!

Cost-Benefit Analysis

Investments or single business cases need to be evaluated based on a certain set of criteria. Since financial performance is the key criterion in most cases you need to have an idea about future financial impacts. A key tool to asses this impact is the cost-benefit analysis which is used to determine the net effect of potential revenues and costs.
