CAS in Management of BioTech, MedTech and Pharma ventures allowed me to deepen my knowledge of regulated industries and gain multiple valuable industry connections. It is an excellent program and I recommend it anyone who wants to gain valuable insights in Bio-pharmaceutical and Medical Device Industry, and benefit from a remarkable selection of speakers.
Aston Life Sciences
Being an engineer in a medical device company is not only technically challenging but it requires knowledge in the fields of Quality and Regulatory, IP, Project Management and Marketing/ Sales, exactly the 5 modules I chose. Many real-life examples and experiences were shared and this gave the lectures the “non-academic” character that suited better the expectations of the majority of the participants.
I would definitely recommend it to any professional that would like either to get a good idea of the challenges in these very important fields or even refresh any existing knowledge.
