The goal for this course is to give non-business students the tools necessary to be totally conversant in the financial and managerial aspects of science-based businesses. 

Course Objectives 

1) To familiarize students with the scope of issues and decisions that managers in biotechnology face as their companies progress from their earliest stages to self-sustainability, and give students the vocabulary to participate and contribute to the business side of scientific enterprises. 

2)) To provide a procedural road map for biotechnology students who are interested in starting their own companies.
