Why study Nanotechnology and Innovation Management?

The Innovation Management Dual Majors prepare students for the growing focus of Biotechnology organizations and University/Public Sector based research groups on seeking markets for their scientific outputs. As the industry matures there is an increasing awareness of the need to be in tune with commercial realities. While Biotech is increasingly interdisciplinary, relying on teams of scientists with varying backgrounds to make discoveries, it also relies on input from a variety of professions to achieve market outcomes. This requires some understanding of the essentials of intellectual property law, financing ventures, managing people, building networks and alliances, competing internationally, managing projects, marketing products and services, and planning for growth in a competitive environment. These new dual majors will allow students to develop the business skills required to complement their science skills and so to be more competitive in the Biotechnology field, whether they choose to work in the public or private sector.
