Executive Education

Executive Certificate in the Business of Life Sciences (ECBLS)

The Executive Certificate in the Business of Life Sciences (ECBLS) is a five course graduate level program in the business of life sciences.  The courses cover core business skills (i.e. value chain, accounting, finance, marketing, organizational and human resource management) and have been tailored to incorporate industry specific cases, content and examples.

The program opens with a week-long in residence course in Bloomington followed by four online courses and concludes with a two day capstone experience back on campus. The program takes 10 months from start to finish.

The courses can be applied toward the school’s online and evening MBA or Purdue’s MS in Regulatory and Quality Compliance degrees. The program has been designed for professionals and executives interested in sharpening their business acumen.
