Ian Swanson, BSCH, MSc, GCBA 2010
Business Development Associate, Synaptive Medical, Toronto, Canada


"When I realized academia was not where my future lay, I discovered that my experiences and skill set left blatant gaps that would require filling as I stepped off the academic path. Much like other science students, my university experience had been exclusively focused on building the knowledge and skills required to succeed in my field, but they were not easily transferable to other disciplines.

Enrolling in the GCBA program was an easy win; the courses were instrumental in helping me bridge the gap between science and business. Although they were definitely a different style of class from that I was used to in science, they were not nearly as daunting as I thought they would be. I now work at a company that straddles the line between business and science, and I feel the GCBA program not only helped me land the job, but also facilitated a smooth transition out of academia."
