Business and Management 298. Experimental Courses

Applied Health Science

Applied health science, including biopharma, creates products that improve health and save lives and thereby creates a uniquely sharp tension between “doing good” and “making money.” MGMT 298 will take an interdisciplinary approach to see how both ends of this spectrum can be maintained: promoting human health and social justice globally while still offering incentives that balance the spectacular risks inherent in health product development. Topics to be covered include intangible property, patents, funding sources, and case studies on life science products. The course will include broadly interdisciplinary student teamwork and culminate in creation of a business plan for developing a life science product of the team’s choosing.
