"The MMB program is a rich blend of the science and business courses. The well-designed courses enabled me to gain insight on various aspects of drug discovery and design as well as the skills and knowledge required to get them into the market. The class activities and interactions encouraged by the professors helped me to get over my fear of public speaking. They stimulated me to think outside the box and look for the practical applications of what I was learning. Also, the biotech laboratory course trained me to plan and carry out various experiments, teaching me many biotechnological techniques. I gained confidence working on the various assignments and at the end of the program felt ready to take on the challenges of my upcoming professional career."
