Science and Business Integrated Programs

From insulin to the Internet Scientific research has been the foundation of many of the most significant technological advances. It is logical that business and science must work together. In the end, companies must come up with innovative technologies to stay relevant and scientists benefit from the commercialization of their discoveries.

But that’s not always case. Some inventions in science don’t get into the commercial realm. Part of this may have to do with how the credit for inventions is given to the inventors. A scientist may include their technician as a co-inventor, however this does not accurately reflect the contribution they made to the web research which led to the discovery. The differences in mindsets and goals that limit the exchange of ideas are more significant. Business talks of sustainable profits, as an example while science focuses on an amount of sustainability that doesn’t lead to the over-exploitation of resources.

Collaboration is the key to success in science and business. Business and scientists must be able to communicate in each other’s language, listen to their concerns, and discover innovative ways to bridge the gap.

Fortunately, top universities like Woxsen offer integrated business and science programs that allow students to have the best of both worlds. In these programs, students focus on a chosen subject area and enroll in courses from the general management curriculum. This program provides the skills needed to excel in many areas of business, including intellectual property management mutual funds and sales of technical goods, and more.
