Medical Biotechnology, MS: A Professional Science Master's Program
A multi-disciplinary program for the biotechnology professionals of tomorrow
Biotechnology is a rapidly growing field that is a classically defined by the application of living organisms to impact the human condition and the human environment. Our MS in Medical Biotechnology will train interdisciplinary professionals to work in an industrial setting at the interface between traditional biotechnology as it applies to medicine and the areas of entrepreneurship, law, marketing, product development, strategic planning, and business management.
The program may be completed in 18 months and our graduates will possess a strong technical background, combined with knowledge of business practices that will equip them to be successful in the real world, becoming leaders and assuming management roles in the biotechnology industry.
About the program
This innovative interdisciplinary degree program is a perfect fit for students who see themselves working in a collaborative environment within a booming industry sector. Our students may take classes in business principles, entrepreneurship, marketing, communication, leadership, biochemistry, immunology and biotechnology alongside our MBA and/or doctoral students. Our Medical Biotechnology students will benefit from the fusion of science and business, since the program has more science than an MBA and more business than a Ph.D. The internship component allows our students the opportunity to play an active role in a focused research project under the supervision of an industrial mentor. Students will apply the cutting edge principles learned in the classroom to real world problem solving in medical biotechnology. The program is flexible and can be tailored to the individual needs of the student. Our students may complete the program in 18 months of full time study or, in part time mode, working professionals may be able to complete the program in 3 - 4 years depending on course load selection.
