The Master of Science in Patent Law from University of Minnesota combines traditional study of the complexity of patent law with project-based learning about business strategies and extensive practical training. By the time you graduate, you will understand the science behind patents, the law that secures them, and the techniques to manage innovation and maximize the value of resulting patents.
