At Lek, a Sandoz company, we welcome the announcement of the English-language Industrial Pharmacy postgraduate program at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana. The new program opens up an international space for the flow of top skills, expertize, and talents. We already employ a large number of Master's graduates from the Slovenian-language version of the Industrial Pharmacy postgraduate program in our development laboratories and production, and expect a growing demand in the future. Given the global nature of our company, we need interdisciplinary teams of experts from various international backgrounds. We therefore support the introduction of the English program and will work to attract some of the most motivated students to our scholarship program.

At Krka, we are committed to supporting educational initiatives that contribute to the advancement of pharmaceutical education and sciences in Slovenia. Therefore, we support the English-language Industrial Pharmacy postgraduate programme at the Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Ljubljana. The programme is not new to us. We have already contributed to the Slovene-language programme by providing Krka’s lecturers and organising visits to Krka, and will provide students with the opportunity to gain experience in the pharmaceutical sector also in future. Moreover, several graduates of the initial Slovene program are successful employees of Krka in various and important roles in our company.
We believe that this programme plays an important role in equipping students with the necessary knowledge and skills to excel in the pharmaceutical industry.
