Business as a Second Language course gets the nod to grow

Robert Karpman and the BEST Program created the Business as a Second Language: from Molecules to Moolah course in partnership with Entrepreneurship@Cornell to address the needs of PhDs and postdocs to learn business and management life skills. It was recently highlighted (see page 16 of the link below) in the inaugural BME Newsletter celebrating the $50M gift that enabled the creation of the new MEINIG SCHOOL OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING.

The "knowledge gained in this class is sure to set [students] apart during the job search process," said one participant.

As a result of the success of the mini-course throughout four pilot sessions, it will be offered in Fall 2015 as a 3-credit leadership course called BME 5960: Business and Management Fundamentals for Biomedical Engineers.
