The interns also had the unique opportunity to visit Rhein-Minapharm, Minapharm's subsidiary and the only R&D and manufacturing biopharmaceutical facility in Egypt, Africa, and the Middle East. Marketing training sessions were conducted to provide the interns with the foundations of developing marketing plans, presentation skills, and insights into the marketing profession.
In addition, a sales training program introduced the interns with the diverse skills such as selling, negotiation, and problem-solving needed to survive and excel in the changing world of pharma. During weekly meeting, the interns were also familiarized with Minapharm products and real-world experiences from the field.
