This year Putnam conducted two sessions of our Path to Putnam Program. We welcomed 20 candidates from top schools across the country including Berkeley, Harvard, Rice, Michigan, Columbia, Duke, BC, and BU. The program is a 3-day introduction for potential candidates in pursuit of a PhD or who are in a post-doc position and are interested in exploring the business aspects of science and consulting to get a snap shot into the life of a Life Sciences Consultant.
In the Path to Putnam program, candidates gain hands-on experience conducting complex quantitative and qualitative research and commercial analysis. Under the guidance of a Putnam Life Sciences Consultant and a team of other Path to Putnam members, participants break down a realistic commercial strategy problem and present a synthesized recommendation to Putnam partners and consultants. We were excited to work with this strong pool of candidates!
