Making your MSc work for you – online workshop

Online event on Friday April 24th, 4-6 pm

Join the Centre for Innovation Management of Research (CIMR) for our event “Making your MSc work for you”.

The event will feature an interview with Dharmesh Shah, Innovation manager at Airbus, and Klaus Hentrich, Global Product Manager, Genomics at SPT Labtech, to give an industry perspective on how to tie your research to industry needs. There will also be a panel consisting of Business Innovation alumni (Aleksey Mikhalev, Reetu Sood, Maximilian Giehrl and Abeer Abu Ghaith) to share their experience of how their dissertation has helped them since leaving Birkbeck. Of course CIMR academics and alumni will also be answering questions on how to ensure you make the most of your Birkbeck MSc.
