Professional Science Masters in Bioinformatics Management
The Professional Science Master's degree (PSM) in Bioinformatics Management addresses the growing demand for trained bioinformatics professionals with solid management skills able to assume leadership roles in biotechnology, pharmaceutical and health care sectors.
The flexible degree structure allows students to custom design a curriculum that best suits their needs and allows a focus on biological big data analysis, genomics, or bioinformatics software development in addition to management. Students will receive advanced training in bioinformatics and management through coursework and an external internship component.
The curriculum was developed with active input from the Program Advisory Board consisting of recognized leaders in the field. Many courses are offered in a distance-learning format, allowing students to participate in class without having to travel to campus.
Due to the varied course options and their associated prerequisites, students are encouraged to create a program of study with their faculty advisor by the end of their first semester of studies.
