Tech Nation gets extension on National Public Radio
Moira is gung-ho about the extension. “They’ll keep sending us contracts and we’ll keep producing!” she exclaims.
The BioTech Nation podcasts have their pride of place in School of Management’s ever-expanding curriculum. The podcasts are used in various courses in bio-business, including its twice-annual AGI study tours to various global bio-clusters. With Gunn as the guiding force behind these dynamic productions, the department continues to provide new and relevant material to students, and to the bio-business community at large.
In June 2012, at the International Biotechnology Conference, Gunn recorded over 50 interviews with several CEOs and luminaries in the industry. These will air throughout the year and are also being used in the BoB courses beginning this very year. Much to the students’ delight, these versatile courses lend themselves to various majors like the MBA, JD/MBA, MSIS and the new PSM in Biotechnology programs.
Gunn acknowledges: “In a sense, we’ve come full circle. The support our segment received originally from USF’s tech community has immensely helped in establishing and feeding its own curriculum now.”
