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.
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.
