Biotechnology is an expanding sector providing a range of opportunities for employment. A key shortage exists for skilled scientists who also possess the business skills required for success. This MSc programme develops skills in both of these areas, delivering you to the forefront of bioscience applications whist building a strong foundation in business practice and development. The programme is run in partnership with the highly regarded University of Exeter Business School, benefiting from their knowledge and skills regarding business management and enterprise.
The biotechnology sector has seen rapid growth over the past decade, and it provides great opportunities for enterprising people who can work at the interface of science and business. There is a real need for bioscience graduates who have the business acumen needed to lead in this expanding sector. To fill this need we have developed the Masters programme in Biotechnology and Enterprise. By training you in the latest advances in molecular biology and 'omics' technologies the programme addresses the core focus of modern pharmaceutical, environmental and applied biotechnology. In addition we will introduce you to the theory and practice of entrepreneurial activity providing an overview of the demands associated with working in the biotechnology industry. Therefore the ultimate aim of this programme is to develop top class scientists with a flare for business.
