University of Rochester a Top Technology Commercialization Institution

The University of Rochester is a leading research university in the nation and the result of that is many opportunities for technology transfer and commercialization.  In other words, bringing research and products from the laboratory to the marketplace.  The University has been recognized, for the eighth consecutive year, by the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) as one of the top ten institutions in the country in the amount of royalty revenue it has received from licensed technologies.

There are a few programs and opportunities at the University that are related to technology transfer and I will name just a few here.  The University has aCenter for Entrepreneurship which started from a grant received in 2003 by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.  It serves as a central resource for all schools and programs which engage in entrepreneurship education at the University as well as facilitates partnerships between the University and the community.  The Simon School of Business M.B.A. program has a concentration in Entrepreneurship that offers opportunities to either intern or work on class projects with some of these University-related start-ups.   We also have an M.S. program that concentrates in Technology Transfer for those who want a career specifically in this area.
