The mission of the Business Certificate Program in Life Sciences Entrepreneurship is three-fold:

  • To provide knowledge in the areas of business and entrepreneurship to UAB graduate students, Postdocs, and faculty
  • To further cross-institutional collaborations among UAB schools
  • To promote interactions between UAB and the Birmingham business community

The program includes three required courses in Business Planning (MBA 673), Understanding the Biotech Industry (MBA 681), and Innovation (MBA 690).  Each of these courses is 3 credit hours. There are no pre-requisites and these courses may be taken in any order.

Current UAB graduate students may register directly.  If you are not a current graduate student, you will need to apply to the UAB Graduate School as a non-degree seeking student. Non-degree seeking students will need to contact Christy Manning at (205) 934-8815 or cmanning@uab.edu for more information.
