The Team Masters Project and business focused classes helped me develop a broader industry vocabulary as well as offered experiences where I could demonstrate my skill set and capabilities. The best opportunity I was given was my internship—which I believe directly translated to my strength as a candidate coming out of KGI.

Keck Graduate Institute provided me with a solid foundation to enter the life sciences industry. The program helped me to understand the industry landscape and made me aware of opportunities that I did not know were available. I continue to leverage the knowledge and experience I gained at KGI every day.

The education about the drug discovery and development process has been helpful in my work. Exposure to a broad variety of areas of the bioscience business (even those I had no expectation of working on) has also been very helpful, as these things tend to crop up occasionally.

The mix of business and science was perfect for my entry into the industry. The applied knowledge and experience with the TMP was invaluable.
Emily Leong Senior Product Manager, BioOncology Marketing
I had always wanted to pursue a graduate-level degree in the life sciences but wasn't comfortable committing to 5 or more years for an MD or PhD program. Plus, I felt a strong desire to contribute more on the business-end, working with and managing people, as opposed to just focusing on the science. That's why KGI made complete sense for me-two more years of applied studies and the opportunity to focus on business in the life sciences.
