MSING016: Strategy for High-Tech Ventures
Lecturer: Chris Coleridge
This course is intended for anyone interested in working in the life
sciences industry as an entrepreneur, manager, consultant, analyst or investor.
Moreover, the course will provide an analytical background to the industry for
biological and biomedical scientists, engineers and physicians with an interest
in understanding industrial aspects of the life sciences or the commercial
potential of their work.
The course is structured around the life science industry value chain and highlights critical problems and current issues along the way, from early stage scientific ideas, through licensing, financing and valuation, to discovery, clinical trials, production and sales.
This course exposes students to key strategic challenges faced by
investors, managers and scientists at different stages of the value chain in the
life science industry.
Through individual course assignments, class-based discussions of business cases and a real life consultancy project, students are familiarized with a range of strategic analysis tools that will help them in a career in the life science industry.
Most cases focus on the biotechnology industry although several cases touch on issues of relevance to the pharmaceutical, biomedical device, and health care sectors as well.
