Getting into Technology Transfer

Lilley said, With that in mind, would a Masters in Business or a Law Degree be best for me to get into Tech Transfer?

Lilley, I can tell you that most searches in Tech Transfer are for PhDs. If they need someone to run the department, than it is a PhD/MBA. However, I'd say that just as many PhD's make it to management WITHOUT the MBA, so you be the judge. Of course, a law degree is great, and takes you off into a whole other area of your career . . .
