"The MSBTM program is a great marriage between the business and technical aspects of biotechnology. From working on consulting projects with several life science clients to conducting my own bioinformatics research in the laboratory, the program gave me an opportunity to not just learn more about life science industry but also apply the same in business plan competitions. The breadth of knowledge and practical skills that I have gained through this program will definitely help me as a Business Technology Analyst at Deloitte."

"The MSBTM program was critical to my transition from an academic lab to product management at Illumina, an industry leader in genomics solutions. The scale of the projects undertaken during the program were nothing short of incredibly exciting. For example, one of my most memorable experiences was developing and pitching a healthcare market size valuation to senior management at St. Joseph Health that would later be presented to the company’s board of directors and influence corporate strategy."
