Jeff Emch SJU AlumniJeffrey Emch, MBA, VP of Oncology Diagnostic Commercial Strategy at GSK                    

I am a Vice President within GSK Oncology Global Marketing responsible for the diagnostic strategy associated with our medicines. I help to deliver the value of precision medicine to cancer patients in identifying the right drug, for the right patient, at the right time. I have worked in the life sciences and pharmaceutical industries for 20 years taking roles of increasing responsibility in both sales and marketing.

As my career progressed, I wanted to add to my business skill set through an MBA to complement my science focused undergraduate degree and work experience. The Haub School’s Pharmaceutical and Healthcare MBA program was a perfect fit for my needs, providing me with the business, management, and leadership education combined with a focus on my chosen industry and the flexibility to fit into my busy schedule.

I apply the learnings and experiences from my MBA regularly and I know that it helped me to advance in my career. Specifically, the skills I learned in situational analysis and problem solving have enabled me to take on new challenges and business responsibilities. I also really enjoyed the courses on leadership and feel they have helped me to become a better team leader and manager.

Not being a cohort-based program allowed me to connect with a large and diverse group of fellow students and professors. Even with a pharma and healthcare focus the backgrounds and experiences of classmates were diverse and brought interesting perspectives to the discussions. I really value that network and have kept in contact with many following graduation. The faculty at Saint Joseph’s University are tremendous. Bill Trombetta, Thani Jambulingam and Tony DelConte are three that stand out for me in terms of their industry experience and approach to teaching.

I would highly recommend the SJU Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Marketing MBA to anyone looking to expand their business knowledge and leadership skills.
