Mission Statement The MS in Biomedicine and Business degree program provides comprehensive training in fundamental aspects of scientific discovery, technology commercialization and business. This degree will enhance the academic credentials of individuals already positioned in biotechnology, biomedical or related industries that are seeking advancement in their careers. It may also serve as an entrée degree for individuals who aspire management and leadership careers within the biotechnology, life sciences and/or biomedical sciences industries. Graduates of this program will be prepared to continue in more advanced graduate studies in science or business and/or careers in scientifically oriented management jobs in the public or private sector (e.g., biotechnology and pharmaceutical industry, academics, government, non-profit organizations). Curriculum This 2-year non-thesis program consists of required and elective courses in science and business (at least 30.0 semester credits) and an experiential learning component (2.0 - 6.0 semester credits). The program's "flex-credit" option allows students to customize their plan of study depending on each individual’s academic and professional aspirations. “Flex-credit” can be used to select from a list of advanced elective courses. Students will choose electives based on their career interests and the option they choose to fulfill their experiential learning component. There are several ways to customize the experiential learning component (2.0 - 6.0 semester credits) so that it satisfies both the degree requirements and, especially, the student’s own personal situation. The duration of the internship may vary. Shorter rotations may require that the student enroll in elective courses to meet the semester credit requirements for degree. The student must complete a minimum total of 36.0 semester credits to graduate.
