Course summary

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.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go on to careers in the scientific and business sectors, as well as in research, public policy and the biological/chemical industries. Possible professions include research scientist, science writer, or higher education lecturer. This degree may also be useful in becoming an operational researcher or management consultant.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
