NC State Jenkins MBA Biosciences Management Initiative Featured in BioPharm International

Raleigh, NC, June 11, 2010 --( The NC State Jenkins MBA program ( has announced that its biosciences management initiative was featured in the May issue of BioPharm International, a magazine that integrates the science and business of biopharmaceutical research, development and manufacturing. The article highlights the biosciences management initiative’s innovative curriculum and how it combines the elements of traditional business fundamentals with scientific concepts. The combination of coursework and a practicum, a short-term project where students work directly with bio-agricultural, bio-industrial, medical devices, diagnostics, or pharmaceutical firms, helps students learn the tools needed to pursue management in biosciences and pharmaceutical environments in either science-based functions, such as research and development, or business functions.

“We are pleased that our innovative and growing biosciences program was featured in BioPharm International,” said Steve Allen, associate dean for graduate programs and research in the NC State College of Management. “The Jenkins MBA program is designed to create bio-entrepreneurial managers to meet the demands of diverse fields such as health care and agriculture.
