Application Deadline: May 31st
The Master of Interdisciplinary Studies (MIS) in Biomedical Enterprise program equips students to enter the 21st century biomedical enterprise workforce through its unique, interdisciplinary coursework in science, law and business, accompanied by interactive projects and internships. In partnership with the nationally-ranked J. Mack Robinson College of Business and the College of Law, this innovative degree offered by the Institute for Biomedical Sciences teaches students how to bring biomedical advances to the marketplace, empowering them to make important contributions in innovation and commercialization that could improve human health and save lives.
The 16-month program gives students a competitive edge by combining training in three critical areas needed to excel in this industry: science, business and law. Students will gain practical advice from industry leaders and executives on how to succeed in the biomedical enterprise workforce. The program’s curriculum also equips students with soft skills sought by industry employers, such as problem solving, critical thinking, creativity, communication and collaboration across disciplines.
Graduates are prepared to work in a number of areas, including biotechnology, pharmaceutics, entrepreneurship, consulting, education, outreach, government and other fields. Georgia State’s location in Atlanta provides an added benefit, positioning students near many potential employers, including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and leading bioscience, healthcare and pharmaceutical companies.
The institute coordinates both graduate and undergraduate admissions. Students seeking an undergraduate degree will apply through university admissions and receive additional support from the central office.
