Postdoctoral Professional Masters (PPM)

Keck Graduate Institute
Campus Full time Part time 9 - 36 months September 2017 USA Claremont + 1 more

The Postdoctoral Professional Masters (PPM) is a groundbreaking professional masters program for post-doctoral students with backgrounds in science and engineering. [+]

PhDs in Leadership. The Postdoctoral Professional Masters (PPM) is a groundbreaking professional masters program for post-doctoral students with backgrounds in science and engineering. This accredited masters degree helps PhD scientists and engineers acquire the business and management skills needed to pursue senior management positions within the life sciences industry or embark on entrepreneurial ventures that are intended to commercialize technologies developed in laboratories. The program curriculum focuses on the unique business environment within the life sciences. Courses combine traditional training in issues such as competitive strategy and marketing with specialized topics such as the role of regulation and medical reimbursement in determining the viability of life science market opportunities. The program also includes courses in accounting, finance, and organizational behavior that will help scientists and engineers understand how bioscience companies are managed. These skills are often essential in enabling effective teamwork between the technical and business employees of life science companies. Program students interested in launching their own business have the opportunity to enroll in specialized courses in entrepreneurship. These offerings include courses focused on building and managing entrepreneurial organizations, as well as an applied course in which teams of students develop business plans for emerging life science companies. Postdoctoral students in this program participate in KGI's capstone Team Masters Project on teams of 3-5 students working on industry-sponsored projects in addition to the coursework of the nine-month program. KGI's strong corporate network provides graduates with a unique bridge from academia to the life sciences industry. This networking begins upon enrollment in the PPM program as the students benefit from round-table discussion sessions that allow students to meet industry leaders as well as alumni working in the applied life sciences today. PROGRAM FACTS Post-doctoral students interested in pursuing upper level management positions, or starting their own company in the life sciences industry. Those with PhD degrees in the sciences or engineering or MDs are eligible to apply. A 9 month or two semester program, with January or September start dates. PROGRAM OVERVIEW The PPM academic program has three elements: 1. Required management courses. These courses will help students develop MBA level skills in management areas of key importance to the bioscience industry. They will also help familiarize students with industry dynamics across different segments of the bioscience industry. This component of the PPM is identical to the Certificate in Bioscience Management. 2. Elective courses. These courses facilitate the development of advanced knowledge aligned with each student’s career interests. Many PPM students choose to take advanced business courses in the areas of international business, entrepreneurship, and/or operations management, frequently coupled with one or more courses in clinical-regulatory affairs. Other students opt to take a series of advanced technical and clinical-regulatory courses pertaining to a segment or functional area of the bioscience industry in which they are interested in working, such as medical diagnostics, drug discovery and development, or bioprocessing. At KGI these are commonly referred to as “focus track courses” or "major courses." 3. Team Masters Project (TMP). The TMP project is a contract research project sponsored by a bioscience company. TMP projects are comprised of 4-5 students, a faculty advisor, and a corporate liaison from the sponsoring company. TMP teams will be provided office space, a budget, and any other resources needed to complete the project. A wide variety of TMP projects are sponsored each academic year. Some projects are primarily business oriented (e.g. consisting of market research, business development, or related business goals) while others are more technical and can be laboratory based. Most TMP projects last the entire academic year (e.g. two semesters) and include a variety of project goals and milestones. Due to the scope of work involved, the TMP course (comprising one sponsored company project) counts as 2 course credits each semester. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT In addition to the curricular professional development education, KGI also offers numerous co-curricular activities oriented towards professional development throughout the year. These experiences can help students polish their professional skills in the areas of written and oral communication, interviewing, and working within teams. Experts from industry will frequently be on campus to give talks, participate in roundtables, or meet with students during networking events. Many (perhaps most) KGI students ultimately find their job through contacts made through co-curricular activities or industry-sponsored academic programs such as the TMP. Students have the opportunity to utilize an e-portfolio system to compile and document their professional activities to facilitate communications with prospective employers. PPM Specific Co-Curricular Events During the academic year KGI organizes three co-curricular programs designed specifically to meet the needs of PPM students: 1. Roundtable Speaker Series. Distinguished individuals from the bioscience industry will meet with PPM students, typically over lunch, to discuss their careers, industry experiences, and in engage in discussion with PPM students. 2. Company visits. PPM students, as a group, will travel to bioscience companies or related organizations in Southern California. This will allow students to become familiar with important companies in the region, tour labs and other facilities, and make contacts with executives from these firms. 3. Mentor program. More experienced industry professionals can be invaluable sources of career advice as well as industry contacts. KGI has a broad network of industry contacts, with over 50 bioscience related companies represented on KGI’s Corporate Advisory Council and Board of Trustees. All interested PPM students will be given the opportunity to work with KGI’s Office of Career Services to find a mentor. Institute-Wide Co-Curricular Events PPM students are also welcome to participate in all other co-curricular events. A partial list of the types of co-curricular events planned for the academic year include: 1. “Focus Fridays” - Students enrolled in the two-year MBS program typically enroll in a series of elective courses surrounding a career-oriented “major” during their second year. KGI offers five majors: The Business of Bioscience, Bioprocessing, Devices & Diagnostics, Pharmaceutical Discovery and Development, and Clinical and Regulatory Affairs. This year KGI is organizing a Friday industry event around each of these major themes. Focus Fridays will include speakers, roundtable panels, and networking events in which managers and scientists from companies representing the given focus track area will be invited to campus. More importantly, this is an opportunity for all students to get a better understanding of a focus area, even if they don’t plan to take advanced courses within it. 2. Professional Skills Workshops – KGI students will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of workshops, some focusing on very practical areas such as interviewing and resume preparation for industry jobs, and some very complex, such as intellectual property law. Most professional skills workshops will be held on Friday afternoons. ENROLLMENT OPTIONS The PPM Program can be taken in three configurations: 1. Full-time program starting in September. Students selecting this option complete the PPM program in 9 months, residing at KGI during a normal academic year. Students typically take 6 course credits per semester, including the TMP project. An advantage of this program is that students can finish in 9 months, plus students are “in synch” with KGI’s normal academic year and can easily tap into co-curricular related professional development opportunities as well as KGI’s normal orientation week. While it is not possible to complete a company internship while registered as a KGI student under the 9 month option, it is possible to complete an internship prior to or after completing the program. 2. Full-time program starting in January. Under this option, students enroll in the program for a full 12 month calendar year. An advantage of this option is that students can participate within KGI’s industry internship program during the Summer. While KGI does not guarantee internships, the Institute has long standing contacts with numerous employers interested in recruiting KGI students for paid internships. The January starting time does create challenges for students, however, in that students are not “in synch” with KGI’s normal academic year and co-curricular activities. 3. Part-time program. It is possible to enroll in the PPM program on a part-time basis, typically while working. There are two basic plans for taking the program part-time: a. Four semester option. This is the most common part-time option, and allows students to work on the degree part-time over two academic years. Students pursuing this option normally take all required introductory management courses and some electives during the first year, and the TMP and additional electives during the second year. b. Three semester option. It is possible to take courses part-time for one academic year, and then enroll full-time for a third academic semester to finish the degree. This option takes careful planning, as students must take two full semesters (4 course credits) of the TMP course to graduate. Students pursuing this option would typically need to enroll in the TMP during the second and third semesters of their PPM residency. [-]

Students applying as international students will need to submit additional information regarding language proficiency and student visa status. Degree Requirements All doctoral coursework has been successfully completed. All three yearly assessments of the curriculum strands have been successfully completed. All program requirements (study team hours, mentor goal forms, LLSR, etc.) The dissertation has been accepted and approved. The oral presentation has been successfully completed. All financial obligations incurred with the University have been met. All graduate credits applied to the degree have been earned within seven years at the time of graduation. Degree Options Doctorate in Leadership All doctoral students complete the Ed.D. course sequence, which includes 63 credits in three years of work. Students selecting the Ph.D. track take an additional 3 credits in theory and research. At the end of the first year of study (May/June), students will decide whether to continue in the Ed.D. track or pursue the Ph.D. in leadership. Distinctions Between Ed.D. and Ph.D. The difference between the two degrees is typically summarized in the following manner: the Ed.D. has an applied focus, while the Ph.D. is more research-oriented. The Ph.D. course of study is more focused on research skill courses (sometimes called “methods”) than the Ed.D. Therefore, individuals whose future employment may involve planning, conducting and interpreting research should consider the Ph.D. The Ed.D. is designed as a practitioner’s degree and features courses that assist individuals in improving practices in their respective fields and within their communities. Both degrees focus on leadership and are appropriate for individuals who intend to enter careers in higher education. While the Ph.D. will require students to acquire a deeper and more specific understanding of the various components of research, both degrees will focus on implementation of research. Ed.D. Development of specialized practitioner skills. Application of other foundations and techniques to the field. Applied research which primarily addresses practitioner problems or questions. Ph.D. Theoretical foundations of the field. Application of other foundational or related disciplines. Research which emphasizes theory building, statistics and research design. Graduates of both degree programs will be prepared to make the world a better place in which to live. Specifically, a deeper knowledge of research enables more community actions and publications.

The Rhodes Business School Ph.D. Programme

Rhodes Business School
Campus Full time Part time 2 - 3 years February 2017 South Africa Grahamstown + 1 more

According to the National Qualifications framework, the Doctorate Degree (General) provides training for an academic career and requires a candidate to undertake research that culminates in a thesis. Furthermore, the research that is produced should be of a publishable standard, thereby demonstrating an original contribution to the body of knowledge. [+]

The Rhodes Business School Ph.D. Programme Background According to the National Qualifications framework, the Doctorate Degree (General) provides training for an academic career and requires a candidate to undertake research that culminates in a thesis. Furthermore, the research that is produced should be of a publishable standard, thereby demonstrating an original contribution to the body of knowledge. This implies that there is no assessed course-work component, although course work may be included to facilitate the completion of the degree. In keeping with its essence, the Business School offers a Ph.D. programme that seeks to contribute to the body of knowledge related to “Leadership for Sustainability”. Topics currently being researched include leadership development, responsible strategic decision making, servant leadership and service as a leadership competency. At Rhodes Business School we do not have a DBA programme. Eligibility The following criteria are used in selecting Ph.D. candidates: Qualification: Hold a Master’s level qualification [i.e. NQF level 9] in a relevant discipline [e.g. Commerce, Management, Leadership or Business Administration]. This would include course-work Master’s degrees such as an MBA degree. Academic performance: Achieved an aggregate mark above 65% for the Master’s degree. Research capability: Proven ability to conduct independent research. This would be reflected in good research performance and output during the Master’s programme. Evidence of publishing research findings would be a distinct advantage. Attendance: While the Ph.D. degree is usually offered on a part-time basis and not in attendance, candidates are expected to attend Ph.D. weeks twice a year in Grahamstown. Capacity and alignment: Matching supervisor and student research interests, along with supervision capacity. Access to data: Have access to a potential site for conducting field work. Self-Funding: Little funding is available for part-time Ph.D. study. Candidates would need to budget for the costs of their annual registration fees, research costs, conference attendance, and visits to Grahamstown to attend Ph.D. weeks and to meet with the supervisor. The Ph.D. programme Duration: At a minimum, a full-time Ph.D. candidate is registered academically for two years and a part-time candidate for three years. Usually, the degree takes longer than this minimum period to complete, and more realistically requires registration for five years to complete the degree that consists of 360 credits or 3 600 notional hours. This amounts to spending an average of almost 15 hours a week for 50 weeks of the year, over a five-year period. The PhD week: The Ph.D. candidate is required to demonstrate an ability to conduct independent research of a publishable standard. This can prove to be a tough and lonely journey. Consequently, the Business school requires candidates to attend compulsory Ph.D. weeks, twice a year [usually in March and August], as a means of offering support and building a network with other Ph.D. candidates. The main purpose of this week is for Ph.D. candidates to meet with their supervisor and fellow Ph.D. candidates and to receive further guidance on their research progress. There is time allocated for lectures on research methods sustainability and leadership; one-on-one supervision; independent study; and to visit the library. Candidates are also expected to make presentations in this week related to their own research progress. Individuals who may be eligible to register as Ph.D. candidates in the near future are also invited to attend this week and to deliver short presentations of their ideas. Publishing: An effective way to embark upon the Ph.D. journey is to publish intermittently, before handing the thesis in for examination. This provides smaller milestones along the way, and allows the candidate to receive peer feedback, which assists in appraising the potential contribution of the Ph.D. topic. The Business School does not only encourage this practice of publishing once a Ph.D. candidate is registered, but also encourages Ph.D. applicants to co-author conference and/or journal publications with a prospective supervisor prior to registration. This collaborative experience is invaluable in exposing applicants to the rigours of academic research, provides some insight into the demands of the Ph.D., and allows the applicant and supervisor to work together prior to formally committing to the demands of a Ph.D. How to apply Initial enquiry: Enquiries related to Ph.D. studies can be sent to bizschool@ru.ac.za. Please write “Ph.D. enquiry” in the subject heading of the email and attach a copy of your curriculum vitae. In the body of the email, please provide the following information: Name: Highest qualification and name of institution: Proposed topic: Academic performance: Aggregate mark achieved for the Master’s degree: Research capability: A description of your research performance and output. Access to data: Describe the potential site for conducting field work. Self-Funding: Confirm that you are able to fund your own studies. Location: Your proximity to Grahamstown and the likelihood of you being able to travel here for the Ph.D. week and supervision meetings Duration: The number of years within which you intend to complete the degree. Upon receiving your enquiry, the School will first consider if we are able to supervise the research and if you are eligible as a PhD candidate. The School reviews its capacity to take on extra supervision, and the alignment of the research topic with the research interests of the School. Thereafter the eligibility of the applicant is reviewed. A member of the Rhodes Business School faculty will then respond to your email, either advising you that (1) you are ineligible for the Ph.D. programme, (2) that we are unable to consider your application at this stage, or (3) putting you in touch with a prospective supervisor. Research Collaboration: In the case of the applicant being put in in touch with a prospective supervisor, the two parties will begin to explore the topic in more detail and to collaborate on a research paper for delivery at a conference, or for publication in a journal. The applicant will also be invited to attend and present at the next Ph.D. week. Formal Application: Once the prospective supervisor is satisfied that s/he is ready to take on the supervision of the applicant, a formal application to the university can be made. [-]
