This Sunday’s Boston Globe featured an article by Jay Fitzgerald about expanding areas of business in the local job market and the channels of education that are emerging.
Fitzgerald’s piece touched on a range of dynamic growth industries, such as health care, cyber security, gaming development, regulatory issues and project management—many of which are represented at CPS; for example, he points to the master’s degree in Project Management:
Northeastern offers a master’s degree in project management, which can take 18 months to three years to complete on a part-time basis. The program, which focuses on such topics as project scheduling and monitoring, cost and risk management, and budget and personnel management, is attracting students working in technology, finance, construction, and health care.
The article also mentions the CPS Master of Science in Regulatory Affairs in Drugs, Biologics and Medical Devices:
It’s not a law-degree program, but rather a nuts-and-bolts review of what’s required when complex medical products have to go through extensive clinical trials before they can be sold to the public. The program includes courses on drug and medical device regulation, the legal intricacies of human medical experiments, and the process of clinic trials.
