This course is a new online learning experience designed specifically for interactive study via the web. The course will provide traditional scientists with an understanding of how biotechnology businesses work. It will also provide knowledge of the management roles within these businesses and, equally, could also provide managers with an understanding of the science and its applications within their own businesses.
The course will provide you with an advanced understanding of how the skills required to undertake biomedical research are applied in the drug discovery and development process. Case-based studies from industry, including large pharmaceuticals and smaller biotechs, will be used to increase your business awareness and to provide knowledge of the systems and processes required to pitch credible ideas and secure resources.
The delivery of this course is entirely web-based, with monitored progress and allocated time with the e-moderator, giving you the flexibility to undertake the course components in your own time.
