Professional Development Opportunities at BIO 2015

April 13, 2015
BIO offers two executive training courses to help attendees grow professionally, both co-located at the 2015 BIO International Convention in Philadelphia, PA from June 13-15, 2015. The Business Development Fundamentals and Advanced Business Development courses support the activity that takes place at our partnering and investor conferences each year by training individuals who are making the deals that drive this industry. Each course is taught by experienced business development professionals from leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology firms, and experts from the fields of law and public relations.

In addition, BIO offers a Career Fair to connect job seekers and employers at the 2015 BIO International Convention.

Business Development Fundamentals


The Fundamentals course is an introductory-level course designed for professionals new to the life sciences business development field, or for individuals with some experience and who are interested in updating their knowledge and professional skills. Many participants who may already have some experience in licensing or business development will take this course as a refresher.

Advanced Business Development


The Advanced course is highly recommended for ambitious individuals with demanding business development and senior management goals. It is designed for business development professionals who have most likely served as part of a business development or licensing team, but are now preparing to move to a senior manager role within their organization.

BIO Career Fair


The BIO Career Fair at the 2015 BIO International Convention, on Thursday, June 18th from 2:00-7:00pm, is a premier bioscience recruiting event that provides job seekers with the opportunity to meet with top biotech employers and discuss new career opportunities. Representatives from companies like Acorda Therapeutics, Johnson & Johnson, MedImmune, Novartis, as well as regional employers and staffing agencies, will be in attendance to discuss career opportunities with job seekers like you. Best of all, attending the career fair is free, and registrants gain free access to the BIO Convention Exhibition (a $199 value)!
