If you're interested in biopharma, but wondering if your non-science background might hold you back, let's talk. After starting my career in journalism, I quickly realized I was much better at business and enjoyed it a lot more too. I also discovered a passion for healthcare, and after leading marketing at a healthcare publishing company, I came to Ross to formalize my business education and complete my pivot to healthcare. The collaborative culture, hands-on learning opportunities and excellence in healthcare made Ross a no-brainer for me. Last fall I recruited for biotech and pharma, and interned at Amgen this summer. Ross has taught me many things, but most important is that we can do more working together than we ever could on our own.
