About Us

At Otsuka, our people are passionate about developing and delivering original products as part of a global holistic commitment to better health and well-being. We have two core businesses dedicated to achieving our goals: a pharmaceutical business and a nutraceutical business. The pharmaceutical business develops and markets products for the diagnosis and treatment of disease in the following areas: central nervous system, oncology, gastroenterology, ophthalmology and cardiovascular. The nutraceutical business is dedicated to maintaining and improving health through the use of foods and beverages that provide extra health benefits in addition to their basic nutritional value.

Since the beginning, nearly 100 years ago, the Otsuka family sought to develop products that stood out from the crowd, by traveling down the paths of discovery where others were less likely to tread.

Big Venture

We believe our culture and our people are the differentiators that empower us to produce breakthrough results. This is what makes us a big venture company that takes risks and focuses on unmet medical needs in order to develop new and better therapeutic compounds. We harness the extraordinary creative and innovative abilities of our people to solve problems differently, and to persevere until they find answers. We are in this for the long-haul. Otsuka is a highly ethical company. We adhere to the highest standards in how we develop and deliver our products, and in how we treat our most valuable assets: Otsuka-people. We encourage them to follow their dreams, as turning dreams into reality is at the core of everything we do. It paves the way ahead to achieve our shared purpose: impacting on human health to help people live better lives. 

Culture

Otsuka is an extraordinary company where people do extraordinary things. We are a magnet for top talent. Those who join the Otsuka family know that they will be highly valued and encouraged to fulfil their potential. That’s because we adhere to a number of key values that make us a unique and attractive proposition as we strive to be a great place to work in pharma.

We believe in thinking differently and in challenging the norm, which drives us to do better than before. By encouraging our people to think unconventionally in medical areas where there are unmet needs, we have delivered innovative products in our key therapeutic areas of interest. Otsuka has always believed that human ingenuity triumphs over the use of computers when it comes to being creative and to having those “Eureka!” moments when thinking of products nobody else has thought of. An example of our unconventional thinking is Otsuka’s foray into digital medicine where we have developed, in collaboration with Proteus Digital Health, Inc., the world’s first drug/device combination in a tablet, which was approved by the FDA in November 2017. The digital medicine system, ABILIFY MYCITE® (aripiprazole tablets with sensor), provides data on ingestion adherence and other physiological parameters in patients receiving treatment for mental health problems. It is this willingness to challenge established ways of thinking and avoid standard approaches that makes Otsuka-people special. It is why we believe in our maxim of 'only what Otsuka can do'.

Diversity

We value diversity of thought which means that we form alliances and collaborate with other companies when we see there is an advantage for both parties.  
As well as diversity of thought, we strongly believe in cultural diversity among our workforce. Otsuka-people come from all parts of the world and various professions. What matters most to us is that our people believe in the Otsuka philosophies and values, and have the creative and innovative qualities that we cherish. If you have what it takes to succeed at Otsuka, we provide the environment and the encouragement to do so.

People

Otsuka is a dynamic and vibrant organization where a diverse group of motivated individuals have a passion for delivering innovative products that offer better health to patients worldwide. As well as passion, Otsuka-people have many other qualities in common. They are creative, curious, entrepreneurial, open-minded and able to think outside of the box. Otsuka-people love a challenge, however insurmountable the problem, and have that can-do attitude and steely determination to persevere, to go that extra mile, until a solution is discovered. They can work on their own and as part of a team; collaboration has always been a vital part of Otsuka’s success. It is the combination of all these qualities that helps Otsuka pharmaceutical companies drive toward our goal: creating new products for better health worldwide.
