Biomedicine and Business (BMBU) Degree Requirements

Science courses are offered by Drexel University College of Medicine and are taught in semester terms (fall and spring). Business courses are offered by LeBow College of Business and are taught face-to-face in quarter terms (fall, winter, spring and summer).

Three (3.0) credit quarter courses confer the equivalent of 2.0 semester credits. The program requires the completion of 36.0 semester credits for graduation. Semesters and quarters overlap sufficiently to allow full-time students to meet the degree requirements for this program in two years.

There are several ways to customize the internship or experiential learning component (2.0 - 6.0 semester credits) so that it satisfies both the degree requirements and, especially, the student’s own personal needs and career aspirations. The duration of the internship may vary. Shorter rotations may require that the student enrolls in elective courses to meet the semester credit requirements for the degree.

MGMT 510 - Business Problem Solving - 3.0 Credits

Decision-making and problem-solving prowess is a skill that can and should be learned. Why do well-intentioned, smart, experienced professionals make poor decisions far too often? It may be because they haven’t been taught a disciplined process for making quality decisions. Perhaps they’ve relied on intuition, brains, luck, common sense, and training within the narrow bounds of their professional expertise. Unfortunately, in today’s professional environment these attributes may not be enough to sustain advantage. This course will help managers build confidence in the quality of their complex problem solving and decision making abilities, making them better leaders, and preparing them for effectively solving future challenges.
