MBA/Biomedical Translational Research and Entrepreneurship Program

Designed to educate candidates as business innovators and leaders while immersing them in the science and technology involved in translational research

The MBA/Biomedical Translational Research and Entrepreneurship Program leverages two top-tier university programs located in Pittsburgh—the MBA program at the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University and translational research training at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. This program aims to educate candidates in the economics, entrepreneurship, management, marketing, and commercialization of medical innovations, while also immersing them in the science and technology involved in translational research and clinical/laboratory implementation. The MBA/Biomedical Translational Research and Entrepreneurship program is a two- to three-year comprehensive course of study beginning in August. Trainees in this program will enroll in either the part-time or full-time MBA program and join the MBA/Biomedical Entrepreneurship track.
