Date:8/14/2008

CLAREMONT, Calif., Aug. 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in collaboration with City of Hope, a leading biomedical research and treatment center, announced the launch of its new Certificate in Bioscience Management program for PhD students and postdoctoral fellows. KGI has secured funding to allow a limited number of City of Hope students to enroll in the program with scholarships that will cover tuition.

"KGI has routinely been approached by PhD level science students interested in acquiring the management skills that they will need to be successful in industry," said T. Gregory Dewey, PhD, KGI's senior vice president for academic affairs, dean of faculty and Robert E. Finnigan professor. "We are excited by City of Hope's partnership in beginning this new program which will benefit young scientists and researchers at City of Hope and address a significant workforce issue faced by companies throughout the life sciences industry."

Dewey added that both science and management skills are essential in enabling effective teamwork between the technical and business employees of life science companies. "Scientists with business training will be better prepared for opportunities to move into managerial positions within companies as their careers progress," he said.

To obtain the Certificate in Bioscience Management, students will be required to take the equivalent of five one-unit (or full-semester) courses at KGI. Half of this course load will consist of required courses that are aimed at providing an introduction to strategy, marketing, organizational behavior and finance. The remaining courses will be electives drawn primarily from second-year management courses that are offered as part of KGI's Master of Bioscience program.

In addition to learning about management, participants in the certificate program may also enroll in specialized courses in entrepreneurship. These offerings include courses focused on building and ma
