Overview

Many scientific and technical professionals, while experts in their respective fields, have little academic and professional background in business management. Managerial and business skills however are key to making science- and technology-based projects and research implementable, feasible and sustainable. This program helps participants to unlock their entrepreneurial spirit and dominate areas of management, complementing their technical background and preparing them for a move from bench to market.

Benefits

The program provides participants with much-needed managerial skills, with modules on Strategy, Economic Environment, Finance, Marketing, Human Resources, Entrepreneurship and legal issues such as intellectual property. The program is a mix of face-to-face in-class sessions and online sessions — a format that maximizes participants’ convenience and availability to attend the course.

  • This course gave me confidence to explore job opportunities I wouldn´t have explored before. Adding it to my CV attracted the interest of Headhunters in the search of candidates to enter the Biotech/Pharma sector.
