Program Description

The Master of Business and Science (MBS) program at Keck Graduate Institute (KGI) in Claremont, CA, is a world-class professional program with a 20-year history of successfully preparing graduates for careers in the biotech and pharmaceutical industry.

CORE CURRICULUM -

The first year of the MBS program provides a common educational experience for all students, during which students engage in group collaborations to solve problems facing industry from numerous perspectives. The courses meet in-person once or twice per week with open-ended team projects that occur regularly throughout the semester.

Core courses include: Introduction to Bioscience Industries, Pharmaceutical Discovery, Pharmaceutical Development, and Healthcare and Life Science Industry Ethics.

Beginning in the spring of the first year, and continuing through the second year, students select electives to focus-in on a particular field of interest. All MBS students are required to complete 6 units of 400-level business courses, 6 units of 400-level technical courses, and 3 units of 400-level data analytics. Students may focus their studies further by choosing one of five concentrations:

- Bioprocessing
- Biotech Management
- Clinical and Regulatory Affairs
- Medical Devices and Diagnostics
- Pharmaceutical Discovery and Development

In the summer between the first and second year, students get first-hand industry experience during their required summer internship. The internship serves as a launching point into their future careers.

In the second year, students take part in the Team Master’s Project, the capstone of the MBS program in which teams of three to six students work with sponsoring companies in a consulting capacity to solve real problems.
