PHARM 350 employs a modular format to teach the international strategic management principles behind marketing, operations, finance and accounting, and human resources management in an integrated fashion. The fundamentals of corporate business administration and management are approached in an approach that attempts to recreate the in tandem environment of a functional firm. The A.P.I.C. (Analysis, Planning, Implementation, Control) strategic management model is not only taught and practiced, but also guides temporal placement of learning modules.

Essential concepts are conveyed via a combination of didactic and practical approaches including: lectures, student‐led discussions, student group presentations, seminars, guest lectures, case analyses, role playing, class discussions and debates, and readings.

This program is dividedinto four modules, each running for a 3-4 week period over the Winter Term of Year 3 and consisting of 6 hours of lecture per week. Here is the newest textbook with the Canadian Foundation of Pharmacy.
