The Sackler School has opened registration for their next short course, focused on preparing individuals for industry. If you’re heading to industry, register soon — seats are limited.
We are pleased and proud to announce a new short course “NAVIGATING THE CORPORATE ENVIRONMENT”. This course continues our series of courses and seminars designed to educate and train students and postdocs toward career excellence in academia and across the biomedical workforce. This course will provide an introductory understanding of working in biotech, pharma and research organizations.
This course will combine lecture and interactive activities from a Northeastern University Business faculty with discussions with alumni and others from a variety of companies. Topics will include managing people, understand culture, working in groups, teamwork, organizational structure, company overviews, the market and associated peers, roles within an organization and how to be successful in a corporate environment.
This course will consist of five 2-hour sessions on Thursday evenings from 6 – 8 pm, starting on Thursday, March 1. Subsequent sessions will be on March 8, 15, 22 and 29. Attendance at all five sessions is mandatory as are pre -and post-course surveys and a $20.00 course fee. The class size is limited to 30, and will be accepted on a first-come first-serve basis.
Please note this is a not-for-credit course. A light dinner will be served for each seminar!
