National Institute of General Medical Sciences has awarded a T32 administrative supplement to fund the development of a course titled Business Strategy as a Scientific Skill. Dr. K. Mark Ansel, BMS program director, and Dr. Thi Nguyen, career development consultant at the Office of Career and Professional Development, will lead the program.
The Business Strategy course will be delivered as a series of online lectures and podcasts, and will teach graduate students about business strategy used in academic and industry settings. Topics include strategic tools, collaborations and evaluating your strategic plan. To create the course, Dr. Nguyen will collaborate with BMS faculty, UCSF alumni, and UCSF organizations such as iBiology, Carry the One Radio podcast, and Biotech Connection Bay Area. This course will build upon the success of the introductory course produced by Dr. Nguyen with funding from the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
“The BMS Program is excited about our partnership with Dr. Nguyen and the OCPD to help make this innovative course available to all UCSF graduate students,” said Dr. Ansel.
