About the Team Master’s Project (TMP)
The Team Master’s Project is a degree requirement and capstone activity for students in the Master of Business and Science program at KGI. In accordance with KGl’s mission of translating the potential of the life sciences into practice, the TMP offers a rigorous and experiential learning opportunity that immerses students in the type of work many will pursue after graduation. TMPs are supported by interdisciplinary teams made up of three to six students who work with sponsoring companies to address real-world company objectives.
Replacing the traditional master’s thesis work found in standard programs, these projects provide students with the opportunity to apply their marketing, business, financial, and science training to state-of-the-art corporate challenges. Importantly, our teams are advised by both KGI faculty and expert industrial liaisons to assure that academic rigor is paired with a pragmatic focus. Members of TMP teams also include other KGI students in programs such as the Master of Engineering in Biopharmaceutical Processing, Master of Science in Applied Life Sciences, Master of Science in Medical Device Engineering, and Postbaccalaureate Premedical Certificate program, as well as undergraduate students from The Claremont Colleges.
TMP activities emphasize problem-solving, project management, new business opportunity, productive teamwork, and effective communications skills that will be critically important to KGI graduates as they pursue careers in the applied life sciences industries. Representing about 35 percent of a student’s final year of academic work, these contract research projects are designed to produce valuable deliverables for the sponsoring companies.
