KGI Announces the Certificate in Bioscience Management

Modified: June 29, 2016

The Keck Graduate Institute will offer the Certificate in Bioscience Management during the 2016-17 academic year in an online format. In support of the launch of this new program, 10 PhD students or postdoctoral scientists will be awarded a KGI Burroughs Wellcome Fund scholarship during the 2016-17 academic year. The classes are taken remotely using the innovative Minerva online Active Learning ForumTM to facilitate synchronous active-learning based education. The time commitment is substantial with 6 credit-hours per semester for two semesters; but it can be accomplished while pursuing full-time work or research at your current institution.

This is a unique and exciting opportunity for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows with backgrounds in sciences to acquire the business, management, and networking skills needed to successfully transition to the life sciences industry. The goal of this certificate program is to offer supplemental education to scientists interested in pursuing careers in the applied life sciences industry, or who are interested in learning about the process of commercial development of new therapies.

The courses will be offered:
Fall Semester 2016 (Aug 29- Dec 16) and
Spring Semester 2017 (Jan 17- May 12). Times indicated are Pacific Time.
