The CBM program is a unique opportunity for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows with backgrounds in science to acquire the business, management, and networking skills needed to successfully transition into the life sciences industry.
Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, CA, offers a Certificate in Bioscience Management (CBM) that is a unique and exciting opportunity for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows with backgrounds in the sciences to acquire the business, management, and networking skills needed to successfully transition into the life sciences industry. The CBM allows current PhD students and working postdoctoral fellows to earn this valuable certificate on-site or online.
The goal of 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.
Scientists with business training will be better prepared to move into managerial positions within companies as their careers progress. Academic scientists routinely participate in entrepreneurial ventures to commercialize technologies developed in their labs.
CBM courses at KGI focus specifically on the unique business environment within the life sciences. Learn more.
