Certificate of Bioscience Management
The online Certificate in Bioscience Management allows current PhD students and working postdoctoral fellows to earn this valuable certificate by utilizing a one-of-a-kind synchronous learning platform.
Management courses at KGI focus specifically on the unique business environment within the life sciences, combining traditional training in issues such as competitive strategy and marketing with specialized topics such as the role of regulation and medical reimbursement in determining the viability of life science market opportunities.
Courses utilize an online seminar-style classroom, the Active Learning PlatformTM, with audio-video streams of all students and instructors with a limit of 19 students per class. A typical class session is 1 hour 20 minutes and requires reading and preparatory work to be done before class so that the conversation in class can focus on application and practice of the class topics.
The Active Learning PlatformTM requires the use of either a Mac or a PC with a cpu rating of at least 2800, which typically translates to newer models not more 2 or 3 years old. Students must use Google Chrome as their web browser to access the system, and will need a strong and reliable internet connection during class times. Class can be accessed via your computers built in camera and microphone (if alone in a quiet room) or with a headset.
