“With a background in pharma and many years of experience in the medical industry, I joined the first class of the collaboration between SSB and SCIENCE. The courses are marked by extreme professionalism, an intriguing international environment, and the very best lecturers. The combination of study, internships, and numerous excursions is, I feel, something very unique in the field”
