More projects than people? Don’t “back burner” problems or opportunities due to lack of professional resources. Outsource technical or business projects to a team of KGI graduate students.
Do you have more projects than people to manage them, or an innovative idea that you want to test? Delegate a project to a KGI team so that you can focus on higher priorities and enhance your company’s productivity. These projects can also help you find a future employee or give an emerging leader experience managing a project team.
Keck Graduate Institute (KGI), a member of The Claremont Colleges, has completed more than 300 projects for leading companies in the biotech, pharma, and medical device industries.

The Team Master’s Project (TMP) brings exponential value to companies and provides an applied educational experience for our students.
KGI will compile a team of 3-5 students with a faculty member who has expertise in the subject area. Our students specialize in a wide range of areas within biotech and healthcare:
KGI teams offer a fresh perspective with training in the intersection of business and science.

Provide your contact information below and a member of our Corporate Partnerships team will connect with you to discuss how a TMP could fit your company’s project needs.
KGI will work with you to help focus your project and maximize outcomes. Past projects vary greatly from science- to business-oriented and have included the following:
Tomorrow’s bioscience business leaders working on your project today!
Your project will be managed by a team of three to five advanced graduate students. Focused and highly capable, our students have backgrounds in biology, bioengineering, chemistry, physics, medicine, and more.
Typically, student teams manage TMPs from fall through spring semesters contributing approximately 2,000 hours in aggregate to your project. Additionally, a subset of team members can work as summer interns to jump-start the full project prior to the fall kickoff.
The student team—in collaboration with the faculty advisor and corporate liaison—develops a project plan that details milestones, accountabilities, deliverables, and timelines. While this plan guides the team’s efforts over the life of the project, it is frequently updated to reflect changing information and marketplace dynamics.
Each sponsoring organization identifies at least one internal champion to collaborate with the team over the life of the project. This liaison helps monitor and guide team progress, and serves as the gateway to the rest of the organization.
The team and liaison will establish a regular communications schedule (for example, weekly phone conferences) as well as short- and long-term milestones and deliverables.
In addition to solid knowledge of the project topic, the liaison should possess good communication skills, candor, and an interest in collaborating with highly skilled, highly energetic graduate students.
