The PSM

By Deane Barker on July 20, 2004

Add science, business, mathematics and stir: Here’s an interesting article about a new degree: the Professional Science Masters, or PSM.

The PSM is being called the MBA for scientists and mathematicians. It’s an education aimed at future managers who will be able to move comfortably in the business of science, from a meeting about enzymes to another about intellectual property rights, all the while understanding the goal is not a scientific journal article but marketable products.

I’m curious as to what application this would have for computer science graduates. Are there a lot of CS grads that go on to get MBAs now? Would the PSM ever apply to people with CS degrees? There’s more information over at the official PSM site.
