Post independence, pharmacy education in India has undergone tremendous changes to meet the requirements of industry and community at large. The Diploma on Pharmacy is able to meet the requirements of community and hospital stores only partly. The degree program (BPharm) is developed to address all other demands of the profession of pharmacy. However, BPharm education today is facing the challenge of meeting the changing needs the of industry. The four-year BPharm course offered by Manipal College of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Manipal Academy of Higher Education, is prepared considering the needs of the  industry, which gives more impetus for skill development. Thus, BPharm graduates can don the roles like Industrial Pharmacist (Manufacturing, Packaging, Quality Control and Quality Assurance), Hospital and Community Pharmacist (Dispensing of Medicines and Counselling of patients), Sales and Distribution executive (Detailing to Doctors and Bulk Distribution of Medicines), Academic Pharmacist (Training Diploma in Pharmacy Students). With higher qualification, MPharm, a person could land jobs in pharma industry in several niche areas, including research, regulatory affairs, new formulation development, marketing and administration. With experience, an aspirant can move up the ladder to occupy senior positions in pharmaceutical companies getting hefty pay and perks.
