The program will provide skills and professional development opportunities for those interested in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or other biomedical product industries.
The pharmaceutical and other biomedical industries require an understanding of both business and science to bring life-saving technologies to market. Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, CA, offers two sessions of the Careers Beyond the Bench program to provide skills and professional development opportunities for undergraduates interested in careers in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, or other biomedical product industries.
During this challenging and fun online summer program, participants will learn about the business skills and career opportunities in the biomedical sector, providing an edge for pursuing science-based careers beyond the bench.
Session #1 focuses on interdisciplinary careers in the science-based industries enabled by KGI’s Master of Business and Science (MBS) program, which include:
Session #2 emphasizes those careers that establish the safety, benefits, and cost-effectiveness of new treatments, corresponding to the Clinical/Regulatory Concentration of the MBS degree, and KGI’s newest program, the Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs (MSRA). These careers include:
Students in both programs will participate in the Biotech Careers Speaker Series (BCSS), and get a chance to hear and question industry veterans representing a wide range of career possibilities.
