MSc - Master of Science
Biotechnology Business & Finance
If you are seeking a role in the pharmaceutical or biotechnology industries, it's essential that you have a solid understanding of the science and the regulatory environment, as well as communications and deal-making skills. Birkbeck's MSc Bio-Business delivers broad, yet detailed, insights into both the theory and practice of entrepreneurship and business in the bioscience industries, with a focus on commercial activity in science-related projects.
The MSc Bio-Business provides an overview of the life sciences sector, supported and complemented by business, entrepreneurial and applied modules. The structure of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries is explored in the context of regulation and public perception, to highlight issues of risk, regulation and socioeconomic benefits stemming from technology and material developments. The course features specialist professionals presenting on key areas, such as communications, pharmaceuticals and business development.
Industry specialists will be present and available for networking, and you will be encouraged to spend some time in a company in the sector, via networking opportunities.
Hands-on experiential learning is also provided, such as building talented teams and pitching for funds.
