KGI's Certificate in Bioscience Management offers 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 into the life sciences industry. This special offering allows current PhD students and working postdoctoral fellows to earn this valuable certificate either on-site, or online by utilizing our one-of-a-kind synchronous learning platform.
The goal if 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 for commercial development of new therapies.
Program participants will be able to take advantage of many of KGI's extensive networking opportunities on campus and in key metro areas throughout the nation, allowing students to meet industry leaders and alumni working in the applied life sciences today. These events take place throughout the year and all of the online participants have access to many of these invaluable opportunities.
The 5-class curriculum is designed to equip graduate students and postdoctoral scientists with the information and skills typically not acquired in the traditional academic environment. This enables them to expand their skillset and consider careers beyond the bench in the life sciences industry. The focus on understanding of the industry and breadth of topics is like learning a new language, but it’s just the program that I was looking for. With the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Scholarships, the program is affordable.

The online seminar-style class allow for in-depth discussions, break-out sessions, and sharing of materials with my classmates from across the country. I recently attended a conference in Sao Paolo, Brazil and was able to attend classes between the conference sessions.
