Summary

Do you want to shape the future of life science, but need knowledge about what drives growth and innovation in the field?

Up to 8.6% annual growth and 30.000 additional jobs by the year 2030 are some of the numbers that make the growth potential in life science very tangible. If you and your company want to play a central role, you must be able to apply new thinking, take an active part in strategic collaborations and contribute to breaking down silos internally and across industry and sector boundaries. The future of life science consists of converging industries, corporate partnerships, as well as PPP and PPI collaborations, and much focus is on the importance of mastering the landscape of 5D: Drugs, Devices, Diagnostics, Digital health and Data.

This four day Masterclass programme will give you insights, tools and competencies that strengthen your own position in a competitive market and at the same time enable you to support the continued growth of your company. During 2x2 course days, the participants go through 8 modules that introduce the prerequisites for business innovation in life science.

The programme is offered as a collaboration between Center for Corporate Governance (CBS) and Atrium and is the first of its kind, where innovation and management in a life science perspective define the course content. Researchers from CBS contribute with the latest theoretical knowledge and cases within management and innovation, while experienced leaders and specialists from life science contribute with concrete insights and experiences.

There will be plenty networking opportunities as well as interaction with peers during case work. The masterclass program is finalized with an individual written assignment that is handed in a week after the last course day.
