The Basics course is an introductory-level course designed for professionals new to the life sciences business development field, and for individuals with some experience who are interested in updating their knowledge and professional skills.

The Advanced course is designed for business development professionals with over 3 years experience who have likely served as part of a business development or licensing team, but need to operate in a more senior-level role within their organization.

2. You’ll be better prepared for your BIO One-on-One Partnering ™ meetings .

With topics ranging from contract basics to licensing applications covered in the Business Development Basics course and deal structuring skills and negotiation strategies covered in the Advanced Business Development course, you’ll be well equipped with the knowledge you’ll need to succeed in your business development meetings.

3. You’ll be taught by experts and senior professionals in the biotech, pharma, law, and PR fields.

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. All instructors have hands-on experience with deals and licensing in the biotech industry, and many faculty members return to teach the courses year after year.
