Biotechnology Project Management

Postby D.P » Sat Oct 08, 2016 5:57 pm

Hello Forum Members,

Before I ask my question, I would like to inform you that I have already referred the following thread:

viewtopic.php?f=1&t=10782&p=84015&hilit=Project+Management#p84015

Now, my question. I want to learn about good practices of project management applicable to the field of biotechnology. I came across following online course, Certificate in Biotechnology Project Management, from University of Washington. I was wondering if anyone on this forum has feedback about the course.

Thank you for your time.

I think you should ask them for some direct communication with graduates. They must be able to tout a few successful certificate holders who went out into careers and consider this course an important step on the ladder.

This is a respected Univ, with good connections to the local biotechnology community. My guess is that it's a significant decision because of the investment, but it is more of a sure thing than something cobbled up by some smaller independent training outfit.

Dave,

Thanks for your reply and suggestion.

Before posting the message here, I contacted UW Professional & Continuing Education at the number posted on the link below. I wanted to know, how to contact current and past students of the Certificate in Biotechnology Project Management course. I was informed that due to "Privacy" issues, no information can be made available. Also, there is no forum (LinkedIn or FaceBook) where Prospective and Current/Former Students can interact.

I am interested in the Certificate course but before committing to it, would prefer to get feedback from current/former students of the course.

Deepa, it would be highly unlikely to find that information here. Sorry we can't help you,

Can you search (google?) for the program name in Linkedin users' profiles? Doesn't have to be an official forum to use Linkedin- if you find someone, shoot them an email with or without request to connect.

Deepa,

I actually know of somebody (indirectly) who has one of these certificates and I do believe it is from the UW program. They work at the University of Washington Institute for Protein Design (IPD), suggesting they were able to use their training effectively, I suppose. I don't know any specifics, but you may be able to find them through the IPD website.
