Georgia hopes the qualification will bring her one step closer to her dream of one day leading a Biotech company.
After graduating top of her year in Neuroscience from the University of Bristol, Georgia spent the next three years working in Life Sciences strategy consulting before deciding to return to studying. “I am very pleased (and somewhat surprised!) to have been offered two scholarships for this degree at St John’s College, covering all of my tuition and also living costs for the year.”
The MPhil in Bioscience Enterprise (MBE) programme is an intensive taught science and business course intended for those who have an interest in enterprise and the ambition to found technology companies or take up leadership, executive or consultancy roles in the Life Sciences sector. A major part of the course will see her working with two promising medical device startups in Oncology and Neurology - both spin outs from the university - to help determine their future go-to-market strategies.
Georgia says: “I am looking forward to the opportunities the course will afford me as I continue to pursue a career at the intersection of business and Life Sciences innovation. Looking back on my years at LEH I realise how much I enjoyed and valued my time at the school and believe that the academic grounding I received has played a big part in this and other successes I have achieved in these early stages in my career.”
