My KGI education exposed me to a broad variety of bioscience business areas, even those I had no expectation of working in. This has been very helpful in my work, especially when unforeseen issues crop up.

Account Supervisor at H4B Chelsea
As promised, KGI helped me understand the language used across multiple disciplines. By interacting with project managers, marketing, business development, and finance departments, I have had an easier time coordinating within multiple business areas than some of my colleagues without the same background.
Manager, Clinical and Regulatory Operations at ImmunoCellular Therapeutics Ltd
I wouldn't have landed my current job in program management nor been as successful in my career without my MBS education. Every day, I use the following tools I gained: breadth across functions, teamwork, translating from one function to another, and succinct presentations of complex information.

Briana Schuetz Spuzzillo
Senior Specialist International Quality at Amgen
KGI provided a good general background on drug development and the pitfalls in many areas, not just in regulatory affairs. My KGI education also gave me a strong foundation in the financial principles that affect development decisions. And, it helped me figure out where to look when I did not know an answer.
Director, Regulatory Affairs at Sammumed
The Team Master’s 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. My internship helped make me a stronger candidate coming out of KGI.
Shefali Nagrani Upton

Associate Director, Regulatory Affairs at Jazz Pharmaceuticals
KGI excels in teaching excellent strategic vision and adaptability in cross-functional work, as well as in building strong business relationships.
Scheduler/Planner at Google
I had always wanted to pursue a graduate-level degree in the life sciences but wasn't comfortable committing to five or more years for an MD or PhD program. Plus, I wanted to work with and manage people, as opposed to just focusing on the science. That's why KGI made sense for me—two more years of applied studies and the opportunity to concentrate on business in the life sciences.

Overall, the intense focus on teamwork and presentations was critical in building the soft skills required to succeed in the workplace.
