Amir Youssef, M.S. BME 2018

"TCCM is a mini-MBA program, offering a deep dive into high-tech business challenges. Having a background in STEM, it's been incredibly valuable to acquire practical business leadership skills within an expedited timeframe. Immediate submersion in the dynamics of technology transfer has offered opportunities such as crafting a commercialization strategy for a NASA-patented robotic wearable technology. The genuinely involved top-tier faculty, diverse and brilliant classmates, and unparalleled networking opportunities have provided powerful resources to leverage during interviews with deep tech firms. Simply put, TCCM has been an enriching experience that will continue to influence my career."
