Mumbai-based Interlink Marketing Consultancy, a leading consultant to the pharma and the nutraceutical industry, is planning to conduct regular Interlink Masterclasses, forums for discussion and interaction between the industry and students of pharmacy, pharmacology, diet, nutrition and nutraceuticals.

The Masterclasses will be an initiative to continuously update the knowledge in the changing regulatory, market dynamics and career aspects of the industry to students who are likely to start their professional careers.

The inaugural Masterclass will be held at Mount Carmel College, Bengaluru on August 29, 2019. The attendees are mostly going to be post=graduate students of dietetics.

“In today’s economic scenario, students are confused and there is an urgent need to provide them with relevant knowledge on changing industry dynamics. The Masterclasses are aimed at providing the students with an opportunity to interact with regulatory and industry experts. It will also enhance the industry academia understanding,” said Dr R B Smarta, chairman and managing director, Interlink Marketing Consultancy.

“The Masterclasses will be organised regularly across all major metros of the country. Our aim is to start the Masterclass from one college and spread to other colleges in a particular city, thereby covering the entire student fraternity,” he added.

“Better interaction between students and the industry is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to students and subsequent placement of young graduates in healthcare industries across the country,” Dr Smarta said.

With the advent of globalisation and opening up of Indian economy to outside world, competition among industries has become stiff. To solve their problems healthcare industry sometimes looks up to professional colleges.

Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer ideas and skillsets. These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academia.

Interlink will use social media to propagate the awareness of the Masterclasses with the student fraternity and plans to hold webinar sessions in future.
