Senior Researcher, New Delhi
At BCG, Seekers go deep into the challenging issues our clients face. Their curiosity empowers our teams to facilitate change and add value to society. Chirag seeks a new perspective.
BCG gave me an opportunity to explore myself and put trust in my abilities and knowledge to push me beyond my mental boundaries.
I’m a pharmacist by education. Before joining BCG, I worked in manufacturing as well as pharma market research. BCG gave me an opportunity to learn and strengthen my knowledge on a variety of sectors within health care: biopharma, medical technologies, payers and providers, and health care IT, as well as the Indian health care market and global generics topic.
BCG has shown confidence in my abilities and gave me a chance to explore my entrepreneurial side by moving me from a role in the knowledge team to the data and research services (DRS) team. In this role, I could contribute to building the DRS team and the health care vertical in India from scratch.
Chirag holds a pharmacy degree from South Gujarat University and an MBA in pharmaceutical marketing from SIESCOMS, Navi Mumbai.
