CERTIFICATE IN

BIOTECHNOLOGY ENTERPRISE

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Merging science and business is at the center of biotechnology. Students who want to become part of the development and commercialization of science must first understand the running of a biotechnology organization. To acquire this experience and knowledge, students can earn a Certificate in Biotechnology Enterprise. This certificate offers the opportunity to learn critical aspects including how to create a new enterprise, finance, marketing, and other areas of commercialization. This certificate is ideal for students planning to engage in the enterprise of biotechnology beyond the science. Applicants should have an undergraduate degree preferably in the life sciences with a grade point average of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

NETWORK DEVELOPMENT

Certificate requirements consist of five courses. Students who successfully complete the certificate and subsequently decide to seek admission to the master’s degree program in Biotechnology, Regulatory Science, or Enterprise and Entrepreneurship will receive credit for three of the courses taken in the certificate toward the master’s degree. Conversely, students who complete their master’s degree first, may count 3 of their enterprise courses toward the certificate. The certificate may be completed fully online or a combination of online and onsite at the Montgomery County Campus. Note: The vast majority of the courses are offered online, so expect to take no more than 1–2 courses total onsite and the remaining 3–4 courses online.

Our certificate in Biotechnology enterprise provides an opportunity to support your development of knowledge while cultivating a network of relationships with other students in enterprise and entrepreneurship masters programs.
